Aa Bail Mujhe Mar
|by Devi Nangrani|
It is just a fortnight back that I had been to Rajpal & Rajpal agency, to put an advertisement in Times of India for my ‘Unique Tutorials’. Giving the material and the money to the agent, I felt easy and relaxed probably with a feeling that I had done my utmost duty towards my profession of teaching, as a tutor since two decades.
Then followed a couple more for the same for teacher’s job. I noted down their qualifications, their experiences and their demands, with their address and phone numbers.
It was my first morning smile at the success of the response; I ironically smiled to myself, still having better hopes for some student enrolment, but in despair…!
Every tinker jolted me from my chair where I sat with my previously enrolled students. The number of teachers who really wanted to work as tutors were many, countless rather and ironically they were ready to work at even the meager amount, some to make both ends meet, some for pocket money and some for survival.
My teaching career was thoroughly thankful to that auspicious day, for I learnt that day that teaching is learning. I’m thankful to the media which stimulates the thought waves and helps to know one’s place and worth in society. I’m not much displeased with the response. But it is my pleasure to talk to different people, meet new people with good qualifications and high educational caliber, but at what cost!
