My life has been touched upon by more teachers than any other. This is because I could never leave school. I studied in one, went up to college only to come back to school. Teachers forever existed in my life. The ones who taught me and the ones I teach. And they both have remarkable impressions on my life. I have always been a people’s observer. Observe actions, analyse, learn and remember. I distinctly remember each one of them and forever will.

Teachers at school were loving and caring. Yes they were also good at disciplining and now I realize how essential it was. They taught strong values and good morals to which I still standby. For me they were forever encouraging and kind.

 College was liberating and so were my professors. They taught me to question myself and everything else around. They taught me to have humility, to argue well when required. When the world was busy talking about women empowerment, I saw and felt it happening to me through every class my professors would take. Every professor had an awe inspiring character and I continue to admire them even till today.

When I became a teacher to teachers, I saw the personal side of them. They empowered many and yet did not had a control or power in all areas of their lives. Some of them had changed careers and some on them had changed streams. Mostly they compromised as they thought teaching to be less time consuming job which can be managed easily with a household. Little did they know how difficult it was. But I saw them overcome every condition and become best and truthful in their career as a teacher.

You all taught me to realize my worth every day and in every situation. You were my teachers and forever will be.

With all humility in my existence, I thank you though I know that I can never thank you enough.  

With Love

Why I met you at all

with every turn i took
it rolled me away from you

while i thought i was reaching near
i was drifting away

if it was for fate
i could have given up all

But it was for love
and it took all of me

and now when the love in no more
i wonder why

i met you
at all.
