Tomorrow is Teacher’s day ! And it pains me when I think that my Dad, who was an amazing teacher, is not here for me to wish him ! Tomorrow’s day was very important to my Dad as he received so many gifts and cards from his students ! It was on this day that I truly saw how much my father was respected and loved by his students ! And Teacher’s day is yet another reminder of what really has happened to my life !
Whatever my dad used to teach, it used to get lodged in my memory ! I still remember how he taught me the LOG tables in my 9th standard ! He taught me the topic “Light ” in 7th standard and I remember going to the book store with him to buy the reference “Integrated science”!
So much time has passed since then. It seems like a totally different age when it used to be my motive to earn a praise from Dad. A totally different era !
Now it’s just me !
“Dad, happy teacher’s day ! I love you so much and it hurts that I cannot wish you!”
My first ever teacher was my dad. And I lost him ! I guess it doesn’t matter now. I try not to think about such things but I cannot help it! It is there under the surface, nagging in my mind and threatening to burst forth !
