Mr. Sujeet Chhikara

The Story is about my first job as a teacher. It was a normal routine day. I was having the fourth period, the fourth period is the period just before the break. We were doing Magnetic Effect of Current, I entered into my XII class and before starting I just asked, so everyone has completed the homework.

Students gave mixed Responses.

Rahul completed? Yes sir.
Sumit, Yes sir.
Priyanka? Yes Sir.

I started teaching, It was a normal class. Like a normal teacher I had a conversation in between and inspired everyone to be honest in general. I also taught some physics topics, cyclotron, etc. All went well, class gets over. Break started.

I came out of the class, taken few steps and just realised someone was following me.

Sir, I want to tell you something.

Priyanka with tears in her eyes was behind.

Priyanka what happened, I asked.

Sir, I lied to you, I had not completed my homework. But I promise I will complete it. I always try to think how much difficult it would have been for a class XII child to come out and admit, what was that which compels a child to admit. Though it was a small thing really that day I realised as a teacher we really touch the heart of so many students and we can really change the world. We have the power to give a new dimension to the world. When we speak from the heart, Children listen from the heart.
