A Big Shout-Out To Teachers For Teaching Us The Greatest Lesson Called Life
5th Sep 2017 , Pratiksha Mohanty
I was way too young to remember what my first encounter with my teacher must have been like, but I do have some faint memories of writing the final papers sitting on her lap. That was probably because I was down with a fever and was way too sick to be able to write the paper (that must have also been my first exam fever for sure).
As a student I was always nervous and cried before my math papers, it was no different when I was an hour away from writing my board exams. We know how big a deal board exams are in India and not to mention the pressure of performing well. That was when Pradeep Sir, my math teacher smiled at me and handed me a 'coffee bite' saying, "Just chew away your worries now. You have prepared well enough to easily score a 90." I went into the hall smiling, although still a bit nervous. And he couldn't have been any right I scored 91.
Let's thank those teachers, guides, friends philosophers and mentors for showing us the way and making it all so easy for us. Let us all write a few words of gratitude to express out thankfulness because a simple ‘thank you’ could make someone's day.
