It’s four days past we celebrated teachers day so today we have a story of a teacher working in a junior college. Perhaps they are the only people who keep serving generations together. Many cultures divinely describe teachers , irrespective of the fact that they be realized in reality or not . You might have already read a lot of social media posts describing the greatness of teachers and thanking them . A lot has been spoken of their greatness in this week . But let us take a glimpse from their perspective of how they see things and how they feel the system has changed over the few decades .
He is a Teacher . He is very much aware of the comments that are passed on him in secret , he has seen students who are genuine in their efforts and also the mischievous one’s who pretend . It is indeed a tough job sometimes that makes u feel giving up would be better , but there is something that keeps him going . There might be some who do teach for a living but I believe when you start teaching passion takes over for most of the teachers. Every day when he steps into the class he hears a warm good morning in chorus from the whole class . All of the students are in their teens , Just after passing their class 10 , it’s totally a new ambiguous phase . Handling such students and directing them towards an objective is indeed a difficult task. As he speaks of his students who have made it big in their careers you can notice his eyes shining in all happiness . Not all students can afford education and there have been times where students and their families have contemplated on continuing academics. When such situations come to his notice , in all his strength he makes efforts to keep the student from dropping out , it is sometimes necessary that he gets into an argument with parents of girls who think it is not very much necessary for a girl to study . He stood up for many such students and all of them have made it to higher studies and most of them have successful careers today . He has also seen mishaps of his students passing away , he describes those experiences heartbreaking and sometimes he felt as if he has lost his own child . He has been through experiences of all sorts in his two decades of teaching.

If you are a parent you might just be concerned about your children , or to broaden it say your nieces or nephews . But being a teacher calls for a bigger responsibility , a teacher is responsible for a whole society . Not just the ones he teaches but he has a bigger impact on the society . There are teachers who have taken responsibility of runaways, abandoned and fatherless and kept it faithfully . It is indeed great happiness and pride when you see someone make it big from your proximity. Teachers keep seeing such people all their lives .
