There are two categories of people – First, those who assure and second those who act. Hemant belongs to the second one. As a student, I remember he was shy, introvert, humble and responsible. Because of his introvert nature, I rarely remember he approaching me for any purpose.
A student spends hardly an hour of a day with the teacher. Inspite of this if the student remembers the teacher with the same regard and respect years later also, its a privelege for the teacher. After completing his education when Hemant started his new office as an Advocate, he had invited me for the inauguration. I could not make it due to some reason. The message he had sent me touched my heart at once, as he addressed me as ‘mother’ in it.
It is very easy for us teachers to be dazzled by the praise and appreciation our students shower upon us. But do we truly deserve it? Because students like Hemant address us as a mother, which is a blessing and a huge responsibility in itself. I personally feel a teacher has to make herself worthy of this respect.
You have recieved the biggest reward as teacher when a student considers you as an equal to a mother. Later he got married and is settled as a successful advocate now.
Recently he helped me in a family matter. The tact with which he handled the situation was commendable. He also ensured we are safe after the matter settled down. It does not take anything to promise and assure people. But it takes everything to act upon your words and put them into action. Hemant is a man of his words. Introvert, humble and responsible but also sensible.
I wish him all the best for his future. May God bless him and grant whatever he asks for.
