Your first is mother and your last is the pyre. To define a teacher merely within the confines of a living being is a fallacy. To accept the presence of a teacher or a lesson in every breath and walk of life, is the most beautiful part of living. It opens your mind up to the virtues of humility and a desire for constant learning and evolution. The person you look up to as your model, might not have had one for herself or himself. They imbued life in a way that every fallen leaf or every purr of a cat taught them something invaluable. So on this occasion of Teacher’s Day, let’s look at our superheroes and learn of the powers that made them so.
To be abundantly clear, it’s not hardships alone that shape us into better beings, even though it’s presence is indispensable. Every loss, every gain, every moment spent idle is a lesson in disguise begging to be unveiled. Let us all for a moment, step outside the pages of our books and the doors of our schools to fully appreciate the real definition of a teacher.
P.S: And a very very happy teacher’s day to our very own north stars.
