Hidden Talent

One year, on the last day of the school term, I allowed my boys to show their talent in drawing.

I told them that it would be a competition. Hence I ruled 3 columns on the board and asked those who wanted to draw to come to the front.

I was surprised to see the pupils who were very quiet and looked innocent in class could draw very well. There was untapped hidden talent among them. It was really an eye-opener for me. To show appreciation of the works on the board I gave grading according to my liking.

They felt happy to have spent their time doing some creative work than listening to boring language lessons.
