The smile students bring on your face is the reward of being a teacher. Recently, I happened to attend the 50 years celebration of my school where I were I worked as a teacher. Inspite of being unwell, I attended the function. The honour which my students bestowed, by inviting me for the celebration was the reason to do so. Few teachers from the entire staff were invited for the function and I was one of them.
I am glad I attended the function, which my heart will always treasure. Because I met so many of my past students, reliving the memories of the old, glorious times. The time spent with each one of them was memorable and treasurable. Though I don’t remember the names of all my kids who I met, I had a nostalgic moment with each one of them.
The most special part of those moments was, I felt so happy with each of them. They had the same regard, care and love for me which they had so many years ago. The students those days were so humble, non judgemental.
This is what makes them reside in my heart, forever.
I want to talk here about few of them, Nehal, Kanika, Kaivan and Sonali. The honour which my students bestowed was so pure and blissful.
such a humble and obedient student of mine in our school days. I hardly remember if I talked to you in a higher voice pitch, as you never gave me a chance to do so.
When we met at the function, I found the same Nehal, who I had taught so many years ago. The smile on your face while conversing, added an extra positive energy to the joyful environment then. The way you recollected our school days, the way you hugged me, reminded me of the charm and innocence the students of your generation carried.
Best part is, the same is flashed when you met me that day. After you started earning also, the humble attitude you still have took my heart away Nehal.
Thanks to your parents for bringing you up this way, extremely caring and humble. God bless you always in all that you do. May he give you all, that your heart asks for.
