“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I will learn.” Benjamin Franklin said it rightly and I truly believe in it. Learning is a process which never stops. We learn new things everyday. So, lets celebrate this process of learning with some Chocolate Mawa Peda today. It is teacher’s day and any celebration calls for some sweets..
My first teacher in life was my mother. She taught me the life lessons and she was my kitchen guru too. She always involved me while she cooked and that’s how I learnt many things from her. I have also started on a path of being a teacher through my blogging workshops and believe me its not easy. So, hats off to all teachers in the world who have opted to be a teacher as a profession. It comes with so much responsibility and needs loads of patience. I’m sharing a recipe for Chocolate Mawa Peda today and wish you all a very happy teacher’s day. As my mom used to say, don’t fear the flaws and keep learning from the mistakes too..
