Creativity is the art of churning your pool of thoughts until you get a cream never seen before and then siphoning off that cream.

Before you hold the magic wand of creativity, all you need to recite is - "rules and structuring can go to hell". Moreover, to create something distinctive and originally creative, you must be a virgin. I fully understand that it's too hard to resist the lust for William, Wilde & Wodehouse but you can still make a humble attempt by reciting this every morning at 11:59:59 - "at least two of them are gay!"

All the kids whining about my modest reading and watching can stop whining now or continue to do so. I am still not too embarrassed about having completed 5 novels and watched 1 season of
my only series in my entire courtship with vision.

Q. What qualities are essential to be a good trainer?

A good trainer, apart from being well-versed in the subject of training, needs to be affable and amicable. He should be able to connect with his trainees and maintain a spontaneous flow of his knowledge and experience while exhibiting patience and exuberance. Given all the above ingredients, the dish appears to be perfectly cooked and served hot. Taste it and you will instantly yell, “Where’s the goddamn salt?" That salt is wit.

A good trainer is like a train. He needs to come to halt where his trainees don't understand. He should end the day's journey when the trainees are exhausted. He needs to work at the right pace in accordance with the grasping speed of the trainees. He must blow the whistle as and when needed to enforce discipline. Like a good train, a good trainer is punctual, and takes the passengers to the destination safely!

A good trainer is always open to feedback and changes his way of teaching accordingly. Teaching is an art and a good trainer understands that art is not just a dry means of communication but an expression in style, often pleasant and interesting.

Unofficial Unedited Un....ummm...whatever

Mark your actions; we are watching, whatever you do.

Mark your words; we are listening, whatever you say.

TFE is back, with a new set of eyes and ears. After a hitchhike across the galaxy, we went on a trip with Vitalstatistix tomorrow. Join us for the next odyssey.

We believe in the pen and the print. Make sure you believe us, for we spy and we don’t lie.

We are not early and we won’t be late, for we worship deadlines when they go to heaven.

Send your words; even if they don’t make much of a sense, we might still consider them to award you a sentence.

We love competition, especially when they filter, copy and reflect.

For the newsletters, sorry but you ain’t got nothing new. The PAAPrikas failed to count their sins and the reservoir Dogs are not allowed.

We urge you to write as a rite; claim your right, no matter its right or wrong.

To read is human, to write divine.

TFE, the official ‘free’ press invites anecdotes, articles, poems, cartoons et cetera et cetera. For the wordsworthy, we have already booked the Booker.

Guess who’s gonna ‘pay’ for it?
