Three Great R’s

May 1, 2014

‘How was your day at school?’ was one of the questions directed to my three year old son on his return from his play school.

‘Mummy, aaj ma’am ne hame yeh poem sikhai!’, and he would start reciting enthusiastically the nursery rhyme which he would have learnt that day.

It was fun listening to him reciting the poem with some incorrect or missing words that perhaps he could not pick up in the first instance and made up what he thought were the best.

Like most children of his age he would not accept the corrected form even when pointed out by me or his dad as that would imply not having faith in his teacher. You see, the teacher is always correct!

Gradually, on the repetitive reciting of the rhymes in the playschool, he would pick up the correct words and lines and would get better with each passing day.

Slowly and steadily he was learning the three well known R’s namely – reading, writing & arithmetic and the mother in me was happy to see his learning graph going up day by day!

‘See, his learning is improving a lot and his practice of Three Great R’s is leading towards a better performance one day to the next!’ I said excitedly one day to Arvind.

‘Yes, his learning is almost like TGR!’ he said smilingly, ‘as the Three Great R’s improve because the kid dives in this learning experience daily. Similar to this is another TGR.’

‘What other TGR? What’s that?’ I asked.

‘TGR or Triple Gold Reserve whiskey from Black Dog’, answered Arvind and continued, ‘It is named Triple Gold Reserve because it is the only blended Scotch that is produced involving a triple maturation process. The connoisseur knows that the experience of drinking the Black Dog TGR improves from one day to the next.’

‘Sounds interesting!’ I remarked with a chuckle.

So TGR for an adult is just as fascinating as the Three Great R’s are for kids.
