We come across many people in our so called journey called Life. While we tend to forget majority of them, there are few who would remain in our memories, forever. Those personalities very much deserve the attention and mention for having brought in a positive impact in/on our lives.
I too have one such person in my Life. I would be mentioning about how he had brought in a great impact on my life. He is none other than my School Teacher who taught me when I was in the Higher Secondary level.
I did study in the same school from my elementary level till the higher secondary where my Teacher worked(He is not working there any more) and had seen him on various occasion. He had also conversed with me on few other occasion too as he was my English Teacher’s better half. I had never thought even on my wildest dreams that a person who I am fond of would become my Class Teacher. It was on my first year of Higher Secondary and to my delight, on the first day, I saw him walking to the class.
He had waked him and introduced himself as his Class Teacher for us for he next 2 years. I was jumping with joy inside because right from Day 1, his approach was totally different. His style of teaching was totally different. He had never encouraged us to mug up any chapter but taught us mentioning about real time examples. He made us feel the importance of understanding the concept and then read it which few of them did not like or understand in the beginning.
I started liking his class and his way of approach. He became close to me. He did not show any partiality in his class and enforced strict discipline. It was Teacher’s Day once and all had gifted him with a present.He was so humble to deny the gift saying that it was his duty to teach us and not for the sake of gift or any monetary compensation and had given it to me – which I still preserve. Everyone was moved by his gesture.
During the second year, he made me as Class Leader and he had also come to my home once which became the talk of the class. It was during one of the interactive session, he had revealed about his story as to how he had struggled in his initial days and how he had come up a by himself. Till then, we never knew that he was an Advocate as well and a visiting faculty of Institute of Company Secretaries of India(ICSI) and also associated with Institute of Chartered Accountants of India(ICAI) as an examiner. We were also shocked when he told us that he is a Professor in Vivekananda and Loyola College. He had never carried that attitude with him.
His way of teaching was embraced by us as it used to be lively and fun. We dd not realize the importance and outcome of his teaching until we got to see our results. He handed 2 subjects – Commerce and Accounts and my scores in the respective subjects on the 12th Main Examinations read as 199 &183 respectively which saw me getting the Offer Letters from almost all the colleges in the city.
I am ever thankful to him. His name is Dr K N Ramaswamy and we call him fondly as Dr.KNR!!!
