In the age of assembly line manufacturing, we have forgotten what has been intrinsic to humanity, the uniqueness and it starts with the child. Philosophers, Socialists, and visionaries have spoken about it. They have spoken about the uniqueness of each child.

This acceptance will form the basis to explore the hidden qualities of our child. Unfortunately, the schooling system normally encourages the common measures to evaluate the academic learning primarily. The grading pattern sometimes fails to identify various aptitudes like kinesthetic, auditory, visual, olfactory, and gustatory personality or make the possibility of multiple multidisciplinary personalities. We will have two when we accept then it leads to discovery.
It is important to notice that none of the traits is superior or inferior. It is not about right or wrong or inferior or better or good or better. While accepting their uniqueness, we also have to understand and accept that all are same.
