Teacher’s Pet – Teacher who had a real impact on your life

William Arthur Ward rightly quoted, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

I am fortunate enough to have inspiring teachers from my school days. My father and mother both were teachers and from the very early age I used to worship my teachers. Even having certain kind of issues with some teachers, my respect towards them has been never doubted by soul; I don’t have fault finding tendency, though I must accept at times, I might not have been happy with certain individuals.

In my Primary School days, my father and mother inspired me a lot to participate in various co-curricular activities and that was the reason I was a active participant in elocution and song competitions till 12th standard. Mr. Vishnu Pandya, whom we used to call V.M.Pandya was a great inspiration to us because of English speaking ability. We used to imitate him while speaking English. In a small village where I was studying, he inspired me to speak English just because of his style and it has helped me over the years in my professional life. Our Principle Devisinh Parmar inspired me to inject discipline in my life. In my college days, I was extremely impressed by two teachers. I don’t like the word professors/lecturers because I feel the word “Teacher” has the great impact and attached respect with it. H.K. Desai impressed me with his simplicity and humble nature; even when I visit his home today, he is just like the person I know. Mr. Jitendra patel had an aura around him. In college days I used to be mesmerized by his personality, style, and discipline. I used to fear from his presence but I admire him a lot for his disciplinary life style.

Vinay Kher left a great impact on my Life and I was never the same. He stands out when I need to owe my life to someone who has inspired me for thousands of reasons.

As Nicholas Sparks quoted, “They inspire you, they entertain you, and you end up learning a ton even when you don’t know it”… I didn’t know when I started to learn things from him. It was a crisis time in my life. Personally, I was going through the biggest self-created trauma of my life… I was down and out; I used to lose my mental balance more often than not; my focus was certainly not on my Professional life and he embraced me in his aura. His persona has such a charismatic effect that I could not only come out from the trauma but improved as a professional. My programming became better and my vision changed. He not only taught me how to look at things, but inspired me live a meaningful life.

I haven’t forgotten what he said once… “Keep company of the things which are not alive…like Books, Games and other interest because living things may change after changed priorities”…and this sentence has been extremely influential after that day. I enjoy myself even when I am alone and this was unthinkable before 3-4 years. I wanted to run away from my problems and even from my life and I stopped him indirectly number of times but still he inspired me…

You can’t stop a teacher when they want to do something. They just do it. – J.D. Salinger

When you study great teachers… you will learn much more from their caring and hard work than from their style… I observed a lot on how he works and understood what dedication is!

Fortunately, He is always with me and He always inspires me!

My LifeStory in My Favorite Quote – II

Since childhood, I have been extremely anxious and result minded boy. There is a sense of urgency in whatever I do. I never keep things hanging whether it is in relation, life, education, blogging, professional assignment or my promises…

Everything has sense of urgency and I hate people secretly who doesn’t have sense of urgency.

I remember how I wanted to be in love for life time that time; This is true whenever I like someone… Everything I do has quick decisiveness, passion, honesty, and meaning. I take my decisions quickly because I know the value of relation and emotions.

My commitments haven’t killed by my own self. It has been murdered on the name of tradition and priorities by other Parties and unfortunately I can’t blame anyone because I believe there is no other person responsible for your misery.You … Yes, You are responsible for your own misery. This is not a random thought…I have been a great believer and follower in this since long and so I always blame myself.   

From personal point of view, My desires never lost value due to lack of urgency and it will never loose value in future.

Whenever I feel alone, whenever I am disappointed with my relations, whenever my expectations and hopes are murdered, whenever I feel betrayed, whenever my faith is shaken…
