#WoohooDiaries5

By Anahita Irani

I Need to salute my History, Math, Marathi teacher for teaching me the subjects I detested and never liked. But most of all I need to thank my Mom who was also a PT teacher in the same school I studied in. A strict disciplinarian but a kind-hearted soul. She would feel deeply for the children and get involved with her students’ problems, solving them like a mother would do. I have learned a lot from her and cherish my best moments spent in school under her guidance. I salute her today on #Teachersday.

My Favourite Teacher is Mr. Deepak Dewan. He is the bestest teacher in the whole world – someone who churns out stones into rare gems. I remember the phobia of mathematics I had. But he was the one who made it so simple. The tips and tricks he gave were very useful. Till date if I get stuck somewhere it’s those tricks that I remember.
Not only that, it’s been 14 long years – a journey from my first public exam of class 10th till date, he is my mentor and someone whom I look upon for any advice. Just like my parents keep a track of me he has been doing that for years. He takes pride in my achievements, advises me at times of stress, encourages me to do better.

The role of a teacher is not stuck to simply teaching a subject , rather to mold his student to independently take assignments and wise decisions. Dewan Sir has been that guiding light whose blessings and sound advice has been an aura in the journey of life.

#WoohooDiaries4

By Rujuta Jadhav

Teachers are one of the greatest people you come across in your life. They are not only the selfless givers but also the mentors in your life. I would like to thank Arpeeta ma’m for creating an environment of enthusiasm for learning, appreciation for growing and room for making mistakes along the way. I am grateful to have her as my teacher. She has treated her job not like a profession but her passion. She has been a teacher who never showed me the way, instead taught me how to search for it myself. She has been not just a teacher but a parent to me. No amount of thanks will be enough for all that she has done for me. I found guidance, friendship, discipline and love, everything, in one person. Without her, I would have been lost. She has inspired me to do better in life and guided me throughout. Thanks for being a true mentor.

There are people who come into our lives and leave a burning sensation that lights up inside each of us. In my life there is a Ravi Lekhwani Sir, who I met twelve years ago. He has had the biggest impact in my life and has kept this feeling of hope inside me.

I am able to look into the mirror and, for one of the first times ever, be proud of the person that I am. You believed in me, and that’s all that I really needed. You took the time to care, and not only that, but you made sure that I knew you cared. That has made the difference.

I remember one incident. I went for an interview and because of low confidence I was not able to complete the task they had given me. I felt disheartened and felt like a loser. In place of going home, I went to my computer teacher at the institute. He ask me to do the same project which tha interviewer had given me and I failed. He tried to boost me and remarked that “being disheartened can’t make you a winner. If you want to be a winner, then keep rolling.” His words had done a motivational magic and pumped a lot of confidence in myself, resulting in me getting my dream job at the leading university as a computer lecturer.

We will probably never forget that person because we owe a little part of our identity, who we truly are, to them. Without them we might never have become the person we are today.

#WoohooDiaries3

By Bandini Pravin

I still remember my teacher always used to say that it doesn’t matter how much marks you get in your exams or whether you have topped in the class or not. The most important thing is how well you can implement your learnings into your life and make it better. She used to always say that all work and no play is not a balanced life. One has to go out and play with others, meet others to learn something more which no school or teacher can ever teach. Every day brings in some new learning for you which can be in any format and the day you are not learning even one new thing then it’s a waste of that day. I really respect her for her thoughts and it has actually made lot of change in my perspective of life…. :)

My teacher, Priyanka Jain, was my favourite teacher in school. She has always been my mentor and my inspiration. When I was in school, I would get nervous and stammer while talking. All my classmates would make fun at me. I would then feel bad and cry for hours. At times I did not even feel like going to school. But my teacher made life in school easier for me. She requested the students to help me rather than tease me when I stammer. She would reward star points for students who did good deeds. Thus, my classmates stopped making fun of me when I stammered. They would help me with my speech. My teacher too put in lots of effort. She mentored me constantly and made me feel positive and happy. Every day after school she would spend an hour teaching me and training me. She would fill me with her positive thoughts. Within few months I regained my self-confidence and I actually stopped stammering. She also taught us Math in school and at that time I actually had the least interest in that subject. She realized that from the very beginning and so she always got me involved in every mathematics activity or project in class. In her own way she would motivate me. She would explain the same problem to me over and over again, till I actually understood it. She was very patient with me. Initially when I would score less, she would not shout at me. In fact, she would motivate me to work hard. Thus, I got influenced by her & I put in all my effort to study. Very soon I began to understand math easily and I soon loved the subject too. I owe all my success to her because she taught me that perseverance is the key to success.

From her I learnt to try and try till I succeed. She helped me build up a base for my self-confidence. My teacher has been my true inspiration.

#WoohooDiaries2

By Sakshi Bansal

When I think back to all the learnings that took place up until now I have to say that my idol and my favourite teacher is my wonderful mother, Poonam Bansal.

My fabulous mother has always been a great inspiration and supporter in each and every thing, throughout my life. The bond between me and my mother is not only limited to mother and daughter but it is far beyond it, as she is a great friend, a teacher and a trainer too. She represents a true picture of peace, contentment and courage and poured all these qualities in me to make me a better person. She has always taught me not to flummox and never say die but stand up to whatever the situation be.

She always says this catchy phrase…

“Ya to koi chiz asaan hoti hai ya bahut asaan, mushkil kuch nahi hota”, which really helps me in achieving anything I want.

Thank you so much mom for being such A Great Inspirer, An Empower and An Engager.

I am truly blessed and treasured to have you.

The sudden loss of my father left me forlorn and distressed. I was in 11th std. I lost my interest in my studies. One day my Principal, Sister Mabel, called me to her office. She gave me hug and asked me to cry my heart out. She spent almost an hour with me. Talking about my family, my dreams, my goals. Once I was calm and poised as she made me understand that life does not ends here. I have to be strong enough to face all the tragedies, hardships and difficulties.

Her compassion, ardent love, encouragement, appreciation once again made me lively and confident. I passed my board exams with flying colours.

For me, a TEACHER is an Angel. A person who can judge your virtues and vices, who can bring out the best in you. From the core of my heart I am always thankful to Sister Mabel who believed in me and made me a better person to live in this world. Sharing a memorable picture when I met her almost after 22 years and enjoyed the same warmth and comfort.

#WoohooDiaries 1

By Prashant Jain

My favourite teacher is my boarding school in-charge sir, Sunil sir. He is not on Facebook but in my heart and pictures :-)

I was among few fortunate students to find a golden heart teacher in a boarding school.

I still remember when I was new to boarding school, crying and missing my parents a lot , he came and hugged me and said “Don’t cry child. For your bright future your parents have kept you in a boarding school. Just study with your full heart and make them proud. Here, we are your family!”

He used to take care of boarding as well as teach math.

He is gentleman with a penchant for the well timed joke!!!

I was the only science student in boarding. Others were all day scholars. So I found it difficult to understand physics. Once I had my first physics test. I was tensed and nervous and literally broke down. He sensed my problem. When I told him I was not understanding physics chapters, he gave me special tuitions after school hours and I was amazed to see how knowledgeable he was. Being a math teacher he had very good hold on physics topics too! He made my concepts crystal clear in 2 days and I scored very well in the test. J

His humanity and his choice to share it taught me that a good person who does a good job does not have to be in inaccessible or perfect, that life is both brilliant and disappointing, that it can be successfully navigated and that every day is an opportunity.

His looks match his heart. He was simply exquisite inside out. They say it takes a big heart to grow little minds and this is what inspires me. He taught me from his heart and not from books. He is best because he brought out the best in me. He was like a fatherly figure to me. During our boards exams he used to prepare fruit juice for all the 12th hostel boys. And I can’t forget his Maggie. Though it was not allowed in boarding school he used to still cook it for our gang sometimes J

After my 12th final exam when I was leaving boarding school after 10 long years, he had tears in his eyes :-( I still meet him whenever I go to boarding school.

Thank you, Sir

For acting like a father and friend,

Finding time to teach me

Chapters hard to comprehend,

Thank you for your caring nature

Which made me a responsible creature,

Teaching me what is wrong and right

Infused my life with motivation, energy and pure light,

Refined my talent and skill

Gave wings to my dreams to fulfill!!!

Woohoo, gift, WoohooDiaries

My story is all about an inspiring teacher and also my mother-in-law. It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is also run by an unusual teacher.

She left her high school job in the city and joined a primary school in a village for the enlistment of the unprivileged girl students. In her school she teaches students from the nearby village and slums. A cheerful, positive and encouraging lady, who donated the entire amount she got during her retirement for establishment of the school’s 1st library and the welfare of her school.

She always says that these children are very talented. They just need support and guidance. If they are given the same opportunities and facilities like mainstream kids, they too can do wonders.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get the opportunity to get her as a teacher in my school but as the best mom-in-law, she has taught me the valuable lessons of Life. I thank her every day for that.
