“Under The Peepal Tree” is a series of dialogues between Sri M and the students and teachers of The Peepal Grove School. This interaction was held in early 2023 in The Peepal Grove School campus.
Q: The current generation has a lot of opinions about being kind or being honest. What do you think a child has to learn first? Being kind or being honest? What is more important?
Sri M: Being kind. Sometimes, your honesty could be quite blunt and it might cause sadness. Hence, kindness and compassion are very important. At times being kind may appear illogical. But logic is a small definition. One person’s logic is very different from another person’s logic.
