Guru- Dev Ilk

I was blessed with good or great teachers, at home and at school. I have the fondest memories of them.

However today I recall the only one who was unkind to me. Scathing words directed at the person rather than the mistake/ shortcoming, are difficult for anyone to withstand and I was a sensitive teenager then. This was a language teacher who was harsh (to many, she was fair that way!!).  That my Hindi was average, did not help matters.

B Miss,

My Hindi improved because of you. And you taught me one more thing- to warn my kids ( in case of need) that not all teachers are God or good.

Aap ki aagyakari,
