“Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man”
- Swami Vivekananda.
When we think of children, we think of the mother’s love. The selfless prayers in the minds of mothers and their untiring efforts help the children to become good human beings.
As far as a teacher is concerned, children are like clay in the hands of a sculptor. A sculptor can make anything out of clay, according to his imagination. God has decided something special in every child. That something special is flowering through his life.
We cannot predict a child lying in the cradle, what he will become in the future. Perhaps in the future this child will become a Tagore or a Gandhi or a Tolstoy and so on. Education is drawing out what is special from the child. As teachers, it is our challenge and responsibility to explore the real instincts and find in the best in a child. This will help the child to discover himself and also become a worthy citizen. Let us pray to God to give us the intelligence and strength to mould our children in to a valuable human being.
