Some teachers go beyond their 1.3 job descriptions. I remember when I first entered my school called Saraswathi Vidyalaya at Nagpur the first teacher was Mrs. Saraswathi Kuppuswami, who met my father for few seconds and took charge of me, maybe my life, held my hand and took me into her class. I looked back with teary eyes and as my father turned his back, may be ‘he was uneasy in seeing me Crying, I looked at my teacher's eyes. Her eyes had that assurance I needed her eyes had the love and the care I needed most.
Since then I've never looked back. On that day, unknowingly, I learnt my first lesson-stand like a rock with love and care when somebody needs you the most. Dear teachers, let me confess here that I may not remember all the theories you taught me, despite the fact that I spent days studying them. But I remember the little stories that made the entire class laugh, I remember those silly biology projects in which the live frogs ran away from the laboratory, and I distinctly remember that remark, "ask questions, it is okay to ask silly questions and make silly mistakes."
This book is a compilation of stories revolving around teachers and students who look beyond pressure of exams and grades.
A post-graduate from Mumbai University and an IIT (Some) Bombay alumnus, N. Raghuraman is a seasoned journalist with more than thirty years of experience as an editor of distinction in leading national dailies such as The Indian Express, DNA and Dainik Bhaskar. This prolific writer has scarcely left any area untouched: from crime to politics and from business development to successful entrepreneurship. His immensely popular daily column 'Management Funda' in all editions of Dainik Bhaskar has captured the fancy of a nation given to meretricious ideals. The success of the column lies in stringing together diverse tales of ordinary people performing extraordinary feats; in delineating the simplicity of life where indeed its core values are ensconced.
Mr. Raghuraman is also an amazing motivational and inspirational speaker, just as he is an accomplished master of ceremonies and moderator of public debates. He has written several books published in English, Hindi, Gujarati and Marathi.
