    That is an interesting first experience you shared, dear Ms ChitrangadaSharan. You were confident that you could take on that challenge and the rest went in your favour on its own. A wonderful piece of first memory and I loved reading about it. Blessings to you…

    In your article "First is Foremost and Memorable" I love the photo you shared with us with the saying, "There's a first time for everything."
    It looks like a beautiful park.

    You tell us how the mention of the word "First" made several ideas swirl in your mind.

    You tell us how it seems those first times are etched into our minds forever.

    I love your explanation as to why...
    because they are the ‘first times’— You take that first step with excitement, curiosity, uncertainty, nervousness and may be with apprehension also.
    So, the first time is important and memorable.

    In Your poem, "First’ is Foremost and Memorable" you show us some moments in your life that are firsts.

    In "My “First” Day as a teacher you show us a part of your world.

    It sounds so rough to have to plan out the entire year beforehand.

    Then to be there on your first day when you were given an incorrect topic to discuss.

    You handled it with grace and excelled.  No doubt...those children were impressed and liked you from that moment on because you took an interest in what they liked.

    In your section, "Some must know ‘First’s’ for everyone" you list 10 things that others achieved first...like Neil Armstrong stepping onto the moon & the Wright Brothers flying an airplane.

    Those are the ones I remember the most.

    You've certainly dud a wonderful job on this article.
    I enjoyed learning about you being a teacher.

    It takes alot for a person to be their for children, but you seem to be a natural interacting with them.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

      The pictures are of the Lodhi Garden, situated in Delhi. I had visited this beautiful place recently, and had clicked many pictures. Thank you for appreciating the pictures.
      I am happy that you liked my response, the poem and my first day experiences, as a teacher.
      Yes, I have enjoyed my teaching profession. It was so wonderful to be amongst the inquisitive, positive and energetic young minds.
      Thank you for your excellent review and for sharing the link in the word prompt article.
      Have a good day.

      Yes, it’s slightly difficult to navigate through the links to the article in the forums, and commenting is not as easy as it was earlier.
