    I am P.Chitralekha from Delhi, India. I teach botany to undergraduate students. I am passionately interested in plant science. My primary interest has always been in research of fundamental aspects of plant biology but after teaching botany for 15 years I realize that I can teach well too. This is one of the reasons for my joining Wikieducator workshop, to get tips to be a better teacher.

    My Favourite Quotes

    • "God is not a person. God is an eternal principle. That is why I say that truth is God."    

         Mahatma Gandhi

    • Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognises genius.

        Sir  Arthur Conan Doyle                            

    • Being true to ones own self comes above the need to be nice and contrariwise, being nice need not mean being untrue to oneself.               
    • Never apologise; the good sort do not need it and the bad ones would take a mean advantage of it. 


    •  One needs a lot of tact to get people to forgive one ones generosity.
