EC Song Game

In this game first of all teams are formed with five members in each team. Then the teams choose a name for themselves and also a team leader. Now the song game starts. A group comes and sings a song. The other groups after listening to the song has to write in their notebook three things about the song they just heard: Meaning, Feelings and Values glorified through the song.
For eg., if the song sung is our national anthem, Jana Gana Mana then the answer can be:

The teacher reads all the dialogues written by different teams and selects the best which has to be enacted before the class. This script ie., the best one is given to all the teams and the drama is performed. The teams which wrote the best script and performed in the best manner get points.

EC Rightly Wrong

It has always been an interesting thing to note that in our society admitting a mistake is worse than committing a sin/crime; or how else would you explain that no leader of any political party/group/organisation ever says that at least one thing he/she could have done differently while being in the position of power. It's almost a miracle to see a man/woman in our society having the courage to admit mistakes, revealing weaknesses in his/her character and asking for a feedback. This over indulgence with always being Right has made us lead a stressful life. We are forced to wear a mask of  the "Always Right" personality in this "I am never wrong" world. This is a "stuck in a rut" situation for the person which stops evolution of any kind and also puts the man/woman in a situation of helplessness as he/she is afraid of making mistakes and blamed by others. So the first step can be accepting ourselves as we are and living a life where losing/quitting is a step in the right direction...towards change...towards progress...towards happiness...towards being wise than Mr/Miss Always Right.

EC Culture

In the name of culture, is it right to impose a patriarchal values on the modern, knowledge based 21st century society is a question which every citizen should ask at this point in time. In a macho world the defining values have always been speed, survival and succeeding to the next level at any cost. A lot of human values like compassion, kindness, forgiveness, benevolence, sharing etc. have been compromised in this mad race for getting "success". But it is a good sign that some of the human values like cleanliness, respect for all genders, non-violence, honesty, conversational temperament, empowering the weaker sections, respecting the old, education without punishment are being endorsed. Let us work towards a model of success where people are happy and free to discover their true "selves".
