Teachers day gratitude

On the eve of teachers day I want to remember my many wonderful teachers ,who are all responsible for any goodness or intelligence that I have and all my drawbacks remain because I probably couldn't learn/unlearn fully.

  • Mrs.Malhotra from Kindergarten for letting me be -cry, paint, write, sing  and always smile at me !
  • Mrs.Dey from class III or IV , to introduce me to fiction.
  • Ms.Chauhan from class VI for teaching me the value of discipline and making me strong.
  • Mrs.Kurian from class VIII for the patient algebra and trigonometry lessons and reconnecting after so long.
  • Mrs.Sharma from class IX-X for telling me - you write well !
  • Ms.Oberoi from my first class in college ,for making me fall in love with poets, novelists and dramatists.
  • Mrs. Saraswat for recognising my Hindi potential.
  • Mrs.A.Sharma for caring to notice whenever I was low.
  • Ms.Dewan for being there for me even when I never took any of her courses.
  • Mrs.Singh and Mrs. Sharma in Himachal university for being constantly supportive.
  • Ms. Minhas in Panjab University for egging me on to a journey into literature and discourse that still continues.
  • Mrs.Jaidka in PU for being so wonderful, mom-like then and now.
  • Mr. Nayar for being the role model.
and as the cliché goes MUMMY for being my first teacher, PAPA for teaching me to be a fighter always, dear HUSBAND for being a good co-learner in parenting and life, all my FRIENDS( the list is long) for sharing their lives and experiences with me and PRIYAMVADA ,my little one for being the most selfless guru whose teachings are simple but most profound.
