    Words of a teacher as always....I remember back school days as also universities- -teachers and professors somehow share your three-liner.Teachers do not finance students.For me though it is/were another.The battlefield enemies were teachers themselves and so the playground they made increasingly difficult.When I faltered steps because of lack of guidance and finance the problem-they do not and did not help the way they should for respect.Instead they went on like stray cats- -wherever money students they were there.So they were basically professionals who took to teaching.Not teachers like Chanakya, Jesus or Mohammad or Lord Krishna.

    So made it all alone good.And in the end they came and clicked photos with me to give me a feeling that my astounding grades are only because of their guidances.Thats how life taught about people and specially teachers who had been cold war enemies most of the time.

    Great write though.Impelled me to get back on those strides and the self-propelling mind to take on challenges in life. (Report) Reply
