Learnt how to put on kajal without a light

And to pack super quick ’cause

I often didn’t know that soon I’d be on a flight
 
Learnt more about my taste in food
 
As much as I disliked the grub in Odisha
 
Andhra and Arunachal’s was lip smackin’ good
 
Unlearnt a thing or two about personal upkeep
 
That I can bathe without a bucket
 
And be in the same kameez for over a week
 
Learnt not to take myself too seriously
 
As whenever I thought I knew everything about ASER
 
A volunteer asked me something that was quite a googly
 
Learnt that making mistakes is alright
 
I could read the manual a 100 times
 
And still there could be a typo hiding in plain sight!
 
Learnt to not have a life and giving New Year parties a miss
 
Even came to terms with no longer being on the list
 
After all, it was far more important to work on the learning crisis!
 
As you can see I learnt as much about learning as about me
 
Experienced everything from Rajasthan’s heat
 
to conferences in Paris to debate education policy!
 
To cut a long story short,
 
In the 6.5 years that I was part of the ASER survey,
 
Our children may not have learnt a lot,
 
but my learnings grew every single day!
