Punishments from my beloved teachers were great learning in life

Today when I look back at what I learned during my formidable days of schooling, I see the so called punishments from my beloved teachers as great learning in life,
For example :
1. Stand up on the bench – Take a holistic view, look at the big picture

2. Stand with hands up – Aim high, reach higher

3. Stand facing the wall – Introspection

4. Stand outside the class – Learn through observation, take a world view

5. Kneel down – Humility

6. Murga Bano (I think this is specific to India) – Physical endurance

7. Clean the blackboard – Forget and forgive, start with a fresh slate

8. Finger on your lips – boast less

9. Hold your ears – listen more

10. Touch your toes – Be flexible

11. Write down a line 25 times – work towards perfection

12. Detained after school – Dont join the rat race…be exclusive
