“काकचेष्टा, बकोध्यानं, श्वाननिद्रातेथैव्चा
The quoted shloka from ancient Indian Sanskrit texts has prescribed five “must have” qualities of a good student. Literal translation of the quoted text is as follows:
Perseverance of a crow (1), Concentration of a swan (2), Light/alert sleeper like a dog (3), Frugal eater (4), Readiness to staying away from home for learning pursuits (5), Are five indicators of a good student. We are developing certain good qualities in the students based on my personal experience.
(1) Attitude: Basically, a good student possesses the ability and willingness to learn new subjects even the subjects that are not interesting.
(2) Academic skills: Acquiring academic skills is the most important quality of a good student. Ability to read comprehensively, to write effectively, to speak fluently, and to communicate clearly are the key areas in which a good student must be proficient. Being strong in all these areas will make a student to shine in a class.
(3) Ability: A good student has the ability to apply the results of his or her learning in a creative way and achieve his goals.
(4) Perceptiveness: How well a student can interpret and perceive meanings from a conversation greatly determines the quality of a good student. A good student always perceives right meaning from conversations, but an average student often misunderstands the original thoughts of a speaker or writer and derives a wrong conclusion.
(5) Self-Discipline: Discipline in managing one’s time is an important factor that every good student must possess. Often times, delaying tasks, such as writing assignments, reading text books, etc, may negatively impact the ability of a student to achieve the goals.
