October 5 is hailed as World Teachers’ Day and there can be no other special day when teachers like me shall take a break, reflect on our chosen profession and enjoy the attention and love from our beloved students and fellow teachers.
I woke up early morning from early greetings and that were enough to make my day extra special. I managed to greet our former college dean who had become a dear mentor, friend and mother.
Our student council had given the faculty a brief but love – filled program where teachers received gifts and were graced by songs and dances. While I think of so many reasons why teaching can be a toilsome job, I just have a single justification – LOVE AND SERVICE for my calling.
Teaching can never bring wealth but it is one job I will never get tired of.
