The dreams begin, most of the times, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth. We all know that knowledge alone can make us perfect however no knowledge is possible without a teacher. For me, teachers are those important pillars of my life without which life’s journey would be a lot more difficult. Because of my teachers, I am trying to be a better person than yesterday.
Thank You Jyotsna Davar Ma’am, Rajendra Joshi Sir, Dhanveer Sir, Sunita Sharma Ma’am, Anita Ma’am, Rajyasri Narayan Ma’am, Trilok Chand Sir, Navneet Thanvi Sir, Divya Ma’am, Amit Agarwwal Sir, Jyoti Jain Ma’am, Nikita Singh Ma’am, Sujata Rohilla Ma’am, Aastha Kalia Ma’am, Kaneeka Kundal Ma’am, Kanika Dhingra Ma’am, Sudhanshu Pathania Sir, Abhishek Srivastava Sir, Sukanya Sharma Ma’am, Ankur Sir and all of my teachers.
Right from my childhood till my college days and even beyond, my mentors and teachers have guided me as to how I should move towards my goal. They taught me how to read and write and most importantly, they prepared me for a world that is not easy to handle. Like my parents and family, they too helped me to prepare myself to face the outside world. I salute you all for giving your time, energy and sharing your knowledge and wisdom to make my life more beautiful, discipline and meaningful. With a special thanks to:
Whenever I look back in my life, I have found him present, and I am still trying to understand the meaning of life through his lessons. He used to take the first-class during my school days and he was my class teacher from 6th to 10th standard. The way he used to teach us was different and unique.
His idea of teaching was not the usual one. He taught us to face the practical world by giving examples about life and I learnt a practical approach to handle life from him during my school days. I know he is still sharing his experience with other students and it is my privilege that still I am in contact with him.
I just want to say: thank you, Sir, for everything. You were there for me when I was too young, not aware of anything but you held my hand and taught me to walk in a different path of my life like my father.
It was our usual practice in school during morning prayers and you gave special lessons to all of us. You were, and still are, young and I could feel the positive energy and vibes from you, Sir, whenever you’d give any speech in front of us. I still remember your style of teaching.
If I am writing something in English then I should give credit to you as my English teacher and then Ms Anita Ma’am and Ms Rajyasri Narayan Ma’am. I still remember how when I once saw you in a metro station, you were collecting waste papers and throwing the same in the dustbin and that is what you always did Sir, set examples for students to follow the same.
You are aware that it is not easy to live life after school days and therefore you used to say that “Mehnat karo, itna kaaphi nahi” (Work harder). Thank You, Sir, for everything.
I was not one of her best students and she was not sure whether I will be able to get passing marks in my 12th boards but somehow I managed. Math was not my favourite subject but she taught me that you cannot learn anything if you don’t have any interest. There I learnt from her that if I need to understand something, then I have to develop an interest in that subject. For the first time, when my friend presented my poem in front of all students during prayers, you personally appreciated my work and encouraged me for writing and because of this, I am still trying to write something.
That poem was related to social issues. Thank you for everything.
I was not aware of anything about college life. When I got admitted to law college, it was challenging for me to adjust during the initial days. From the very first day to last day, your presence during my college life made my five years easier and special and I learnt that even in college, the faculty members may teach, care and understand us as their children. You were there for me whenever I needed your help and I know that you are still ready to help me if required.
If I was not with my group, you’d always ask me, “why are you sitting alone?” and if I was not well, you’d enquire about my health and I know that you were genuinely concerned. Irrespective of the fact that you were not teaching any subject after the 3rd year, I felt your presence as a leader and motivator. Thank you, ma’am, for everything.
It is not easy to be in this profession and especially if you are teaching college students. I know that for you it was not easy to handle our batch but the way you ignored every irrelevant thing and voices and the way you gave lessons especially of Constitution of India is appreciable.
You taught me how to concentrate on what we ourselves are doing instead of what the others say. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me, Sir. I hope you get whatever you want in your life but I just want to acknowledge your efforts as a teacher. You shared all information with great passion and you made a positive impact in my life, Sir. Thank you.
I still remember that when I was sitting at home and was not in a position to walk due to my accident, you came to my home and gave lessons. Whatever marks I got in Accounts, Maths and Economics during my school days, that was because of your efforts, Sir.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me and help me become a better person so that I can face this world in a better way. I am a fan of your style, way and passion. You have a great interest in sharing information with all of us and that is why the number of your students is increasing and I hope they will increase in future so that they will get the opportunity to learn from you.
A teacher is considered to be a person who removes all darkness from our lives and bring light. Thank you, everyone, for sharing information, knowledge and wisdom with me. Life is beautiful for me because I got life lessons from all of you.
Happy Teacher’s Day!
