To My Adorable Students

(I responded humbly to my students on their wishes on my birthday. -Dr. Shreesh)

First to My Adorable Students!

I was literally nothing I think before you got me as an ordinary teacher. Now I can say with you all my student, prefix 'ordinary' cannot be fixed before the word 'teacher'. So; basically It's you guys all.

Student, who two days before was hospitalized arrived suddenly at my home at the eve of my birthday with cake, a beautiful message framed and decorated, I was mesmerized.

One of my student who is now alumni of the university had ensured that I must get a special fresh bouquet in the university; it was incredible for me.

Many students have created beautiful posts here on facebook dedicating me; I feel really special.

Almost all students have made my photo as their status on whatsapp, I do not think I deserve this much guys.

Beautiful long messages of students in my facebook messenger, whatsapp make me stunned as I never thought that words at daily basis could create this much impact; Overwhelmed as you guys have made my birthday as mini teachers' day :)

In the classroom, students come with cakes again and the way they were happy for me, I will cherish that moment throughout my life.

#Now

Let me say this guys:

Firstly;
I must confess that the society in which I belong I never imagined that I would become teacher one day. In the beginning; even I had not accepted and some of my friends, relatives and close ones still almost have abandoned me as I could not become a civil servant. I don't know what I would be best but last five years of my active teaching experience makes me confident that I am not wasting my time if not securing earthly gains in abundance. The daily interactions with the ignited innocent souls have transformed me a little better person who loves to think and contemplate in a light manner.

Secondly;
People often say that this is the time of commercialization, teacher-student connect is now beyond thinkable and education too lacks the golden respect once it had, furthermore, students of today are not that serious or disciplined. It may true up to extent, but definitely this is not true for few ones and by God's grace I am also one of them. With transparency and honesty, with acceptance of the limitation of the personality and with openness of heart, things are very satisfying and rewarding.

#So, My dear Students
I, always be grateful for your innocent divine affection and respect and I hope I could always do better for its continuance.

Student's wishes for his Teacher

(My student Aamaar Nazir had posted birthday wish to me last year. Why I am sharing it here because it's just not the wishes. It is an unbridled source of satisfaction a teacher always longs for. Very beautifully, he had expressed his notions and See, how encouraging it would be for a teacher. Blessings Aamaar.- Dr. Shreesh )



"Allah elevates to high positions those from amongst you who are faithful and those who have acquired knowledge ". Al - Qur'Aan
I have always harbored the most profound respect for your intellect, wit and humor. Sir, " your lectures remain one of the best and most thought - provoking classes " I've ever taken. THANK YOU.
Today is a thanks giving. GOD ! I thank for giving you birth in this world of rosy dawn, where you stand to upright the political education in house where some gatekeepers have turned democracy into tyranny, wherein the gloom of society has taken polity as bygones...Today is the day I should thank you for all the good thing's...AAH ! Mean's there are bad thing's too, Yeah infact just one and they are giving low grades 😉
Although I'll not be able to encompass how good as a Human Being you are. I'll fell short of words. My apologies.
Had I not got acquainted with you I would have lived all my life with idiosyncratic belief that The Toxin Of Nationalism and The Notion Of Patriotism are synonyms. Thank you for saving me from a subtle form of idolatry. You injected the healthy factor of the idea of nationality in me and taught Geo-Politics. You made me to travel to the medieval Europe by creating the atmosphere where a blink of eye would disturb our act of worship. You induced the morals in me about polity and taught us all that true political life begins not with the claiming of rights, but with doing of individual duties. It was you who took me through the gates of History with a psychological cause to reaction to the Colonialism. It's you who had the audacity to write ' to uphold the Secular nature of constitution ' Mosque must be rebuilt. It is you who made me to recognize my limitations and estimate my capacities and assure success. It's you who taught me the anotomy of human mind through the brutal nature of Levithan of Hobbs. It's you who taught me Rousseau's State of War. It's you who taught me how Machiavelli writings swirled the minds of people on the basis of objectivity. It's you who made me realise how Marx screws our minds and makes us to curse basic rationale. It's you who taught me the principles of Morgenthau...See here I fell short of word's I can't write more...Locke, Hegel, Material Dialects etc there is a lot I have learnt from you and I will never be able to pay you back. I just want to say thank you for all the hard work you have done on us and bring out our best.
Happy Birthday Sir. Allaah bless you with His best and fulfill all your dreams within the genuine quarters. My warm wishes for your future endeavours.
P.S :> You may have left JNU but JNU hasn't left you...Anti national...Love You seas and the oceans.
