Thank you Teacher!

To: Mr. Durairaj, former teacher, DKBH School, Natham, Tamil Nadu, India

I remember my maths teacher who taught me way back in 1963 in SSLC. It is a village called Natham. The school was DKBH School. I understood his value only when I entered PUC (standard 11 equivalent) in a college in a big city like Madras. Because of poor English knowledge, I could not cope up well with most subjects (I studied in Tamil medium including maths). However I could pick up maths seamlessly because of the interest created in maths by my school teacher Mr. Durairaj. He used symbols extensively instead of descriptive language and made us familiar with symbols. This way my poor English did not come in the way of performing well in maths. Apart from this, I have never seen him scolding students, though getting beaten by teachers was quite common in those days. There was no Teacher's pet. Every student was equal for him and his focus was to bring out the best in every one. Whenever I solve a tough problem involving complex maths (right up to my work in rocket science), I thank him for the foundation he laid. Thank you sir.

It is said that a teacher is a messenger of God.In him we find the glimpse of that Divinity of which we all are a part.How can I forget the role that my revered teacher played in my life? A poor student having nothing to gain in life was turned from brick to marble . It was my teacher who not only gave me the knowledge but also imparted in me the ability to judge and deal with life. Today after 25 years of my career as a teacher and coordinator , I feel myself as a satisfied soul . I could achieve nothing had there been no guide like him. I adore you my Sir! Sashtang Dandavat !

POOJA BAJAJ, Completed B.Ed

To: Mr. Niyaz , Professor at JIMS Greater Noida

He is one of the most spectacular and knowledgeable teacher I have met throughout my whole career journey. I was a normal personality when I entered B.Ed but he just transformed my personality into someone I was initially not able to understand. But oh! my god what a change in me. I just love my transformed personality. He is the one responsible for making me responsible and determined. He is the one who gave birth to a teacher inside me. He is my GOD. I respect him a lot from the bottom of my heart. Thank you sir for bringing out a teacher in me. Mr. Niyaz is the best teacher
