I just wanted to say a big to all of you for your cards, gifts and good wishes last Friday. It was sweet of all of you to express your appreciation so warmly and openly. Sincere students make teachers strive to give their best. This Teachers’ Day, I urge all of you to be the type of student who inspires the teacher. Much is said about teachers needing to motivate their students. While there is a certain element of truth in this, I feel that students have a huge part to play in shaping their own destinies.
Do you remember how, in “Iqbal”, the drunkard cleans up his act and rises to the occasion for the sake of a student who will not take “no” for an answer? That, my children, is what learning is all about.
Inspire me. I dare you.
