NIZAMABAD : TRS MP K Kavitha for a while donned the role of a teacher and took lessons for schoolchildren on moral values. Saturday was a different day for the Nizamabad Lok Sabha member. The Parliamentarian, who always kept herself busy by attending government programmes, inaugural functions and political meetings, spent much of her time at a government school in Manoharabad village in Jakranpally mandal of Nizamabad district. The politico, who has the gift of the gab, tried to instil morals into children in the government school by narrating them parables and interesting stories on ethical values like a self-help trainer.
While interacting with the schoolchildren, Kavitha narrated them a story of mosquito and bedbug, which highlighted the importance of keeping good friends. “A bedbug used to suck the blood of a king when he was in deep sleep every night. After making friendship with a mosquito, the bug began allowing the mosquito too to draw blood from the king’s body. However, mosquito persistently disturbed the king’s sleep with its act of sucking his blood. This made the king direct his servants clean the bed, which led to the killing of the bedbug, whereas mosquito escaped into air,” she said.
She said that moral of the story is anybody should not encourage others with bad mentality on the name of relationship or friendship. “That will destroy even those who encourages bad persons,” she explained. Then, the TRS lawmaker spoke at length on the need to have a goal in life. “Everyone should have a goal and try to achieve it in their life time,” she told the schoolchildren.
