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.
Let me say this guys:
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.
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.
