Teachers : Now, Then

This post has been published by me on the occasion of the Teachers' Day as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 2; the second edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.



Teacher's Day is a great opportunity to express our respect to our teachers and extend our gratitude for making us what we are today. It is the time to pay tribute to them, who have shaped up our career and imparted knowledge to us, not just to excel academically, but also to develop our personality. In this day, we fellow bloggers write upon the topic, "Teachers : Now, Then", for Blog-a-ton, Online marathon of bloggers.

Today, September 5th, the Birthday of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, the second President of India, is celebrated as Teacher's Day. A great philosopher, a true statesman, and a renowned scholar Dr. Radhakrishnan epitomized all the qualities of head and heart which a teacher should have. Teacher’s day is an occasion for all of us to pay tribute to our teachers and commit ourselves to the values espoused by them.

Dr. Radhakrishnan once said,

"We have learnt to fly in the skies, we have learnt to race in the waters, but alas we have not yet learnt to walk on the earth."

We are here to discuss the topic - Teachers : Now, Then. Its just the comparisons between yesteryear teachers and present day teachers. Before getting into the argument, I must write about the role played by our teachers from our childhood days to our present day! At kindergarten, teacher becomes a substitute for mother. The teacher takes care of the students and treats them as her own children. When they grow older, teacher assumes the role of an instructor, who guides his/her students to become a good person and instills moral in them. When the students are capable to stand on their own feet, the mentor assists them to reach all the milestones and accomplish all the goals set for life. During the formative years of life, teacher showers immense love and affection upon his/her students, in return of which he/she expects nothing but appreciation. Teacher's Day is a wonderful occasion to reciprocate the love and affection shown to us, by our teacher.

Who is a considered as a Real Teacher?

"Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions"

Teachers are considered the mentors, who not only guide a person academically, but also inculcate moral and ethical values in the student.

Whether or not you’re attending school, the need will arise for you to find a teacher or mentor to help you on your educational journey. You may need someone to guide you in your understanding of great literature, show you how to lay brick, or help you excel in your career. They are the creators of responsible citizens, who contribute to the society in one way or the other.

:::YESTERYEAR TEACHERS vs PRESENT DAY TEACHERS:::

Coming to the topic, I want to deal this by comparing both the sets by taking some common points like: Challenges faced, Method of teaching, Mentality and many more!

First let me start with YESTERYEAR TEACHERS . I am writing this post after collecting some information's from my dad, regarding the teachers during his school-college days. Teachers then has been very dedicated to this profession. They wanted every single student to excel. There was no partiality shown. Partiality between caste, creed, rich/poor was left outside the classroom. Real talents was encouraged. The dedication they had for teaching is awesome.

"The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book."

When they came to class, they come with an empty hand. They are extemporaneous. When they take up a topic they won stop with the contents given in the book. They will give practical examples for each and everything irrespective of the subject they take. Practical examples when associated with a concept makes the younger brain grasp easily and it increases the interest shown towards the subject. My dad told he never had the habit of studying after coming from the school. The reason was the topic they taught and the concept would have been easily grasped which never require further read. Tuition has never been encouraged. I want to tell this with a real example. One of my dad's friend was a low scoring student . When he approached the teacher for taking class, the teacher told, "Listen why do you waste your time by coming to tuition's. If you come here for tuition that means am not teaching properly in the class. You do one thing. listen all the things which I teach in class. Even if you understand go home, take your book and study. You will surely get doubts. Come to me the next day and I will surely clarify your doubts". Have any of our parents told us that they studied through tuition?

That teacher who was against taking tuition's earned a mere amount for his living. If he thought of earning money, he could have taken tuition for that boy. But money was not on his charts. He wanted his students to surpass everyone. He lived according to a proverb, "A gifted teacher is as rare as a gifted doctor, and makes far less money". He still gives his pension as a scholarship for poor students. That's just a mere amount but it matters alot! Can we find teachers like him at present?

Coming to PRESENT DAY TEACHERS!

They face the worst challenges. How many students respect their lecturers? They are in a position to demand respect. Students listen songs, send SMS to their friends. They are cornered because they can't question those people. Some teachers give seminars to students. Seminars in the sense,each unit will be divided into several topics and allotted to several students. By means of this the student takes up the class by just reproducing the contents present in the book. Only some of them takes it seriously and put in effort. If students are taking classes, what for lecturers are there? Will the fellow students understand the topic taken?

How many of them are dedicated to this profession?! These days, there are a lot of people who claim to be teachers. Some have certification from the state, some are followed as gurus, and some offer their services with a “money back guarantee”. But, not one of these qualifications means that a person is actually able to teach. But these day because of the advancement of technology, teachers are able to accumulate lot of details for imparting their knowledge to students. But how many of them are doing it? In one of my friends college, the lecturer came in and started teaching DIGITAL ELECTRONICS, the most important subject for an Electronics Engineer. My friend stood and asked her to explain a particular concept. In reply, she asked my friend to come after the class hours. When my friend approached, the lecturer told, "Listen if you ever ask me any doubts in the class, You will fail in your your internals! Those precious 20 marks, your internals are in my hand. So don't try to ask anything!". This is the current position. Are they passionate about teaching? Are they dedicated?

The number of tuition centers are increasing daily. The teachers fail to teach the concepts properly and hence students go in search of tuition centers. My cousin's Sanskrit teacher working in a popular school in chennai, getting a salary in 5 digits per month, asked all the students in his class to come to tuition. He also mentioned that he will teach only a small portion in class and remaining in the tuition. To get marks, my cousin go to that tuition by paying 500 bucks monthly! Are they teacher's or robbers? Money changes this Noble Profession as a Business.

"Good teachers are costly, but bad teachers cost more."

Having LCD projector and teaching through PPT can be the trend,but those are the miniatures of the contents in book! Again the teachers reproduce the book! Is this a Real learning. What we learn and what we work upon are two different poles which will never go hand in hand. Theoretical knowledge and Practical working atmosphere are dissimilar. If the teachers combine both of them, we can understand the requirement of the industry and equip ourselves accordingly.

A 55 fiction before going to the conclusion.

"Kevin, you scored 5/100. You are unfit to be in Tenth Standard!"

He really felt ashamed and wanted to take revenge on his teacher.

NOW...

"Ma'am? You recognize me? Kevin, your unfit student! I proved you are wrong. Am an engineer"

"I know you will do it. So I Kindled your senses."

His mouth went dry!

I am dedicating this post to all the best teachers. Teachers in the sense not only those who taught me in school or college. Am learning new lessons, lesson for life each day, from friends, relatives, and all other living being am encountering.

Teachers should teach the students not only for scoring marks but also in a way to develop their intellectual and analytical skills. Teach the students about the latest trends along with Charles Babbage's invention. Technology has improved and it facilitates them and be the best tool for educating students.

"No man can be a good teacher unless he has feelings of warm affection toward his pupils and a genuine desire to impart to them what he believes to be of value."

Happy Teachers Day!

Thank you teachers. We are writing, criticizing, appreciating about you and your proffession. Thank you for teaching us how to write! Without you we would have been illiterate! Thank you for showing us the light. Thus you are rightly called as GURU's, the one who removes the darkness and shows the light.

@pra
""True to your word you finished it last at 11:55""
lolzz..from yesterday i was thinking about what to write,but ended up with nothing! I started at 8pm and finished at 11!! Huh!!

""You have compared teachers nicely""
thanks prahansa!

""You are really a 55 fiction queen yaar!""
am honoured! Thanks!

Glad that you liked this attempt! :)

Shruti said...

@RSV
""same topic for the same blog a ton...""
that's the speciality of Blog-a-ton!!

""An excellent read as is expected when visiting this page""
Great to hear that you have confidence in my writing!! Accept my bow!

Sis!!
Thanks bro!

Ajinkya said...

Bored as hell I was. Hell, I was bored. Darn!
...and God smiled and made my hand move the mouse and click Shruti on Blog-a-ton.
The comparison made me think and the 55 story made me smile as God was at the moment. We both joined forces, guess what he was reading - the same thing! Oops!

---
Guess what! I ended up commenting a 55 story ;)

Shruti said...

@Ajinkya!
welcome to my blog!!
Glad to hear that God smiled at you made the mouse to click my post!! :P

God ended up reading my post?!! :P

Ahh! All other point dint appeal except for the 55Fiction i guess!

Should improve my writing standards the next time.

Shankar said...

A very nice post shruthi...Lengthy..But i liked it a lot...

All the quotes used were really good.... They added the spice to ur post... all the best for blog-a-ton..

Anu...:) said...

Nice one akka!
Its amazing how you put into words many of the thoughts that run across our heads all the times yet we don't notice them...:)

Anyways..regarding your post..well you are right of course.But we never realise the importance of teachers...nor we realise the efforts and troubles they need to undergo.Still we blame them!

Shankar said...

And as you said... SOme students are there... Like the black sheeps in teachers..there are also some balck sheeps among the students..who irritates even good teachers..dont give them..any respect... Such kind of students should be punished too...

Teachers face a tough time with those students.... They cant punish also...as now a days students have the right to complain if teachers punish them hard.. So teachers face a tough time as you said...

Shruti said...

@Shankz
Lengthy ah?! :(
am really happy that you liked this!!

All the best for you too!

Indian Pundit said...

Great post.

"Students listen songs, send SMS to their friends."

These things normally happen because the teacher is UNABLE TO MAKE THE CLASS INTERESTING.......

Beautifully written post Shruti.

You finished at the last moment.

Well researched post.

Shruti said...

@anu
hey when you sit and start writing the words will fall in its place! You have heard about the proverb? "Pen is the tongue of mind"
In my case the pen is replaced by keys in my keyboard!
yes! A coin has two sides and its the same with teachers!

:)

Shruti said...

@shankz
you are right!
The teachers even if they don't punish are blamed by the students!! They don't even bother about giving the basic respect to teachers!!
I have seen with my own eyes! I pity those teachers!

Shruti said...

@IP
""because the teacher is UNABLE TO MAKE THE CLASS INTERESTING""
Hmm...Only in some cases it happens! I have seen students who turns deaf to the class irrespective of how interesting the class was taken!

""You finished at the last moment""
:P :D
It happened just like what i told Vipul!!
It happens sometimes you see!!

Bharathi said...

Nice post. you did justice to the topic. It seems you are very much obsessed with 55 fiction as you even used it here in competition. nice move though. All the best.

Sai Manohar said...

Very logical post..I liked it a lot

vEnKy said...

@ shruthi

teaching can be well defined as this over the years

"Kazhuda thenji Katterumbu"

I would attribute it to the previous generation who looked at teaching as the last resort and the generation which exist even now.

Very few actually like teaching and want to teach.

Let me tell there are really bad teachers enjoying vacation in my college. One such is my Auditing professor. He doesn't know who is insolvent and thinks auditor's job is to prepare day to day accounts and find petty cash thefts. OMG what can you do with him.

There are equally bad students who have extremely low levels of attention levels lower than the dead sea. Even if they explain it right they would be only interested in pestering me to ask doubt and elongate the class.

That 55 fiction of yours , i must say nice escapism on the part of the teacher.

Btw dont it take it to your heat if i am being too critical of your posts.

Azad said...

"We have learnt to fly in the skies, we have learnt to race in the waters, but alas we have not yet learnt to walk on the earth."

So true....

A very free flowing post...!
Kudos...!!! Your dad's example shows how sick and monetarily inclined society has become today...! I have had the pleasure of being in the class of numerous teachers who have 'personally wanted to groom' me..!!
What do i say...!!!

Mr said...

ahaan ... so one of the last to submit but not last in the quality ;) Simple words and observing thoughts from someone who just out of teacher-student relation ! All the best !

Shruti said...

@sai manohar
""Very logical post""
thank you so much!

Shruti said...

@venky
""Kazhuda thenji Katterumbu""
Only in certain cases it has become like that!
See, even then teachers were there. All teachers can't be stamped good! There were bad teachers too!
i read in one post, "There are no bad teachers, only we have bad experiences with them"

""Btw dont it take it to your heat if i am being too critical of your posts""
arey venky! I never told am taking it to heart! Loosu madhri pesadha :P
Relating to your auditing professor, nothing can be done with him!
In my case i have seen so far good teachers! Only some of my friends had an awful college life!!

Shruti said...

@Azad
welcome to my blog!
""A very free flowing post...!""
yes it was a free flowing post! I sat before system and wrote whatever that came to my mind! Great to hear that everything has felled in the right place.

""how sick and monetarily inclined society has become today""
yes it has become! It has become a business and if u wanna learn something you have to pay accordingly! Running to few thousands!

Shruti said...

@Mr.R
""so one of the last to submit but not last in the quality""
ahhh!! Great to hear that it was not last in the quality :P

Great that you found it interesting!

@SiD
""you are late...but hit the mark""
hehehe :D It happened!!

""you told me you have nothing to write about this""

And i published it finally!!

""you have put more valid points on the topic than ever""
thanks sid

Thanks for your encouraging comments!

pawan said...

Hey!
Interlacing the post with an excellent 55 fiction was a brilliant idea.!
The post was good and the 55 fiction even better!

You delivered the right pieces of information at the right time!
The example of your father's friend worked out too!

True, from this we can understand that the teacher's of this age have become more money minded!

Cheers!
Good post!

Shruti said...

@pawan
""The post was good and the 55 fiction even better!""
haaa!!! am happy that pawan liked this post!! Hope this 55fiction is better than the previous one!!

""Good post!""
thank you pawan!

RAM said...

Hey once again a wonderful writeup and esp that 55 fiction is superb. You have very neatly described the qualities of a teacher. And I could sense that you have got the inspiration from your mother.Like doctor,teaching profession should have that social sense to groom the children and they are actually the building blocks of a nation :) A great dedication to all the teachers and I dedicate this blog to my mom who is also a teacher through you :)

Shruti said...

@Ram
""Hey once again a wonderful writeup and esp that 55 fiction is superb""
Thanks Ram! I expected that you will like that one!!

And the 55-fiction, it's simple and eye-opening! I wish I could write these like you do! :P

All the best for Blog-a-Ton2!! :)

Shruti said...

THe layout was nice. And why are you so anti-today?

Shruti said...

@pramathesh
Am not anti-today!
I didn't see the dedication my school teachers had in my college lecturers! May be that reflected in my post!

Aparna said...

Teachers are perhaps friendlier these days. In my school days, we were scared to approach a teacher and never made any attempt to get personal with them.
These days I see a lot of students have their favourite students on their orkut or facebook.It was an enjoyable post and liked the comparisons.

Mr. Pramathesh Borkotoky said...

I am sorry about that!

Shruti said...

@aparna
Welcome to my blog!
Only certain part of teachers are like that! To be very frank my school teachers were friendly to me rather than my lecturers!
So everything is based on one's own experience and perspective!

""It was an enjoyable post and liked the comparisons""
Glad that you liked it!

Shruti said...

@pramathesh
""I am sorry about that!""
Arey chodo yaar!
Even i didn't feel about that! Its just another learning experience and i learnt about how teachers should be and shouldn't be! That's all!!

Keep smiling!

Shruti said...

@pramathesh
Ahhh!
You smiled after seeing the comment 'Keep smiling'

Being Pramoda... said...

HI Shruti,

I'm back with my full coverage on ur post..:)

well, fristly i appriciate ur efforts in making such an informative and analytical post.

**At kindergarten, teacher becomes a substitute for mother. ..... in return of which he/she expects nothing but

appreciation.

I was completely impressed by these lines of urs..:) very well said..:)

**"Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions"

Again, an amazing line by its nature.

i agree with u regarding the present teachers and yester year teachers. its a good composition on the whole.

here in this context, i want speak few lines about the present day students and yesteryear students.

Yester year student:

--> no Tvs, no movies, no live sports, no clubs, no pubs, no parks...etc..

--> school and some street games were their life part.

--> Parents were not job holders, so they could have taken good care of them

--> Parents used to encourage children to become a good teacher, by showing examples of their teachers.

--> students were well mannered and they believe that their teacher knows the best.

Present students:

--> Mind is full of many other activities, including every thing that i have mentioned above

--> parents are job holders and can not spend enough time, if not they keep children in hostels for better

education.

--> Parents encourage students to become engineer, doctor...and u name it..:)

--> Students know that the best people are choosing other professions and those who are remaining at the end are

entering the teaching profession, so they cant believe their teachers that they know the best and it ends up in

vulgar comments and lack of interest.


hmmm...more to say, but have to stop now... :)

If u agree, i will take it as a topic and write a post..:)

Plz do reply me..:)

Shruti said...

@pramoda
Ahhhh... the longest comment i have got so far!!

""Plz do reply me""
I will reply to every single comment i get!

""i appreciate your efforts in making such an informative and analytical post""
Thank you so much! I feel really great to hear those comments!

I love all those comments and your appreciations! Migh Migh...comparisons of those students were awesome!

""If u agree, i will take it as a topic and write a post..:)""
Arey yaar!
C'mon, if you like writing up a topic,go ahead and do! You will do complete justice to the topic than me!

Take up and write!
