Teachers- How Good You Want To Be?

Teachers- How Good You Want To Be?

Written by Prins Sir

Teaching is not to create awareness alone, but to enhance the thinking capacity of the students such that they develop the required skills to be successful in their career. The duty and responsibility as a teacher is to bring the students up to a level so that they’ll feel they can do it all by themselves. A teacher has to make teaching- a creative work. Great teachers are the ones who inspire the children to become someone valuable in this society. These teachers see good things in others; they stimulate the thoughts of the child. They teach from their heart, not from the books. They develop a good personal relationship with the students and the bond between the student and the faculty will be immense. These teachers motivate the students and the students feel that the teacher is really interested in their studies.

Teachers discuss various issues and the students will open up. Only when we create a good relation, the student will understand us better and we’ll be able to guide and teach them. A teacher is not built up in a day; only our strong passion, desire and experience can drive us to become a good teacher. A teacher need to have a vision, mission and purpose in order to teach. We deal with tender, human lives. Only hard work, sincere approach and dedication can develop our teaching capabilities. Just for the sake of teaching, you can complete the portions; that is not what we teachers are meant for.

 Our duties and responsibilities are of the highest degree. Teachers have to prepare the subject well in advance, write notes, solve problems and other related literature. A teacher should make a semester plan well in advance and develops a rough sketch of how you’ll engage the classes. A thoughtful teacher keeps in mind of the allotted time for completing the modules. A teacher should have a good time management quality. As teachers, we’re accountable to our students, their parents, the college management and finally to the almighty God.

“We need to provide positive thoughts and good insight to the students. We lay the foundation for their bright career.”

We must stay together with them as a good mentor, dissimulate essential knowledge and devote our time and energy for the upbringing of these young minds with love and affection. I shall say that the 3 P’s to become a perfect teacher are PRACTICE, PRACTICE & PRACTICE. Hard-work, lots of practice, dedication and at times  a little amount of smart work can do wonders in the lives of young teachers who look upon this profession as a noble deed and devote their time for a global enlightenment which its for a humanitarian cause.

PS 1: In fact, I might not know how I felt while copying this content from the hardcopy he’d paid me for reading last week. But I know, he is not a normal lecturer unlike other staff members in my college. Yea! I suppose, there is no one else in my college who owns a little weird attitude or personality, he’s as a college lecturer to his beloved Mechanical Engineering scholars; it creates a notable difference indeed. That day when I became so close to him and the way he treated me like a friend whenever I go to his cabin for speaking about something I or he’d in mind led to the foundation of a vivacious bridge in between us. He promoted me to elapse the beauty of my views by giving precise topics to be penned, or constantly tried to stretch myself for who I’m to what I wanted to be in life. We never talked about anything regarding my studies during our discussions thus far; sometimes that really amazed me though. An awestruck of emotions and blessings shared by someone- a weird teacher- knowingly, understanding myself through who I’m. I shall call him Princ Sir: the best-weird-lecturer I’ve ever seen.

PS 2: I’m not updating this post to get notified in front of those colleagues who’s been following my blog updates. Well, this post doesn’t make any sense to many of you, I know; I’ve just dictated what I’ve in me about this person. Keep smiling! :)

 

An Aisle Of Lightness

Darkness in a coward, a reprobate from ages

went through a satanic path.

The truth is hidden in an eye’s cage,

screaming still in a closed state.

Light in a rebel, a ruling artist,

his renowned enemy believes

in his holiness, and thus leaving

in a crucial path.

Perhaps, they’re always one with two faces,

trying to convey what they know

for the rest- a real disguised world.

Accept them, the one will exist..

The Other dwelling within a jiffy of sins;

pounds of strings praising his wins..

Once, they were none for us,

but then we killed us for them.

PS: This is a group-blogging work that I’ve written together with Viditi Bhargava, an aspiring Engineering student from Delhi, India. For me, she is a peaceful soul who’s a lot of foolish thoughts like me in her mindset and the one who is perfectly fine to mingle such thoughts at any time through her writings, especially via poetry. If you haven’t ever been through her simple blog space, have a look at it here.

That Moment

It lasted only for a few seconds

as she conceals the real me in me;

a young man who loves his soul mate,

kisses her for the first time

in a moment when he felt that

she’s a traitor to teach him,

why I love her so much…

Tonight

Stars in the darkness of sky

whispers, or glitters to have

an end for tonight.

The Mystical Path

It was then he realized that there is a formal darkness coming by that haunted path; a fascinating doll woven together with cotton and silk moaned for a while, looking at him. Alas! His heart beats lowered down, and those dry lips were kissed by a woman, like a chameleon.

A Mockingbird

A young woman hides

her agile beauty to stay apart

from a society,

subjected to the consumption of drugs

that makes him sane, more or less

what he needs in a vein;

the wings of a mockingbird

cut out by a sharp scissor.

A big NO to Mechanical Engineering!

“Why so, Mom? Neither dad nor I have a problem with the choice I opted, you know?  If that’s the case, why have you been so tensed regarding it?”

“Look Vidu! I should… After all, I’m your mom. Even I too don’t have any objection regarding your selection of Engineering, as for the higher studies. The solitary matter is you ought to choose any other branch in Engineering rather than Mechanical stream as your favored choice.”

The above conversation declines the argument between a daughter (my cousin) and her mom, as I was sitting next to them, hearing all this in a family gathering during the concluding twelvemonth. Since the topic didn’t pay much attention to me, I kept ‘mum’ in their aggregated court for a while, taking in the most interesting division of an opera based on their own true-tale. Well, the conversation ended up with the success of my aunt’s objections against her lovely daughter who was keenly interested to put her picture in the field of Engineering, I mean, Mechanical Engineering; the fate factor or her mom’s willingness to ensure her daughter not as a Mechanical Engineer paved her pathway to the door of Electronics and Communication Engineering, later.

Though there is modest attraction towards core branches of Engineering now-a-days, if you ask a girl candidate or her parent, the reply will be like, “I don’t want Mechanical Engineering for my kid; she cannot carry a machine”, “Why Mechanical Engineering for a young woman? They’re not supposed to engage upon such kind of jobs unlike we men do”

I’d aver that the sphere of technology is one of the few meritocracies that is founded on logical analysis and intellectual sentiment, so whomsoever is diligent and professional, and always strive for excellence, then it doesn’t matter whether you’re a boy/girl who belongs to Mechanical Engineering or any other trades coming below it.

If I shall build a symbolic coin with a logo on Royal Mechanical’s face at the head, and so the other side of the coin would be none other than an insignia of the Royal Mechanical Boys. I said Boys! When it comes to Mechanical Engineering, many among us, especially we Indians have a mentality that this course stream is under the dominance of boys only. Still, I don’t know the precise cause behind their wrong perspective regarding it though. Hence, the minority of girls (say 60:5 ratio in a class) who favor this track would have been much courageous and have the guts to choose a classroom where they’ve to sit and study together with the other gender for 4 years.

However, the branch of Mechanical Engineering is not simply limited to rough labor. The branch has got a major subdivision like Manufacturing Engineering, Thermal Engineering, Engineering Design, Industrial Engineering etc. Among these, the Manufacturing Engineering deals with the manufacturing of automobiles, passenger vehicles, trains, railroad infrastructure, ships, aeroplanes, heavy machinery etc. It has already been producing very wide opportunities all round the world and thus girls can exercise in the designing, programming and administering manufacturing process. Whereas Industrial Engineering includes the method of dispensing small, medium and large industries efficiently and effectively. This division is more suitable for girls. They can easily excel in the factory administration since it likewise holds to put less physical exertion. Similarly, the other classes of the course also receive the advantages which are worth mentioning for a young woman to carry along her career if she’s a firm will power and determination to acquire what she need in her life, irrespective of caring the imposition of others choice on her.

PS: Personally saying, I feel like I’m running into a chamber of darkness where you can sustain a bunch of acquaintances, but no one among them is a young woman.
