‘The influence of a good teacher can never be erased and hence a teacher plants the seeds of knowledge’
Not everyone can become a teacher. It takes immense dedication, patience, understanding, empathy, good interpersonal skills and strong work ethics to become one.
Anil Kumar has been a great teacher and explained his journey to the Vidya Bharati team very happily.
Mr Kumar, after completing his B.A and B.Ed degree, came to the teaching area in 1994. He started his teaching in Adarsh Vidya Mandir, Dhinmal and continued till year 2000. In the year 2000, he had made a school named Adarsh Vidya Mandir, Madhyamik, Ravecha and had become the principal in the school till 2009. Again in the year 2009, he shifted to Ramsin and continued his teaching till 2016. In Ramsin, there was a student who was a topper in Rajasthan state in his class 10th board exams. He was a top 10 merit listed student and was taught by Mr Kumar for which he is very proud of.
After Ramsin, Mr Kumar came to Adarsh Vidya Mandir, Ahore, and was a teacher there till year 2017.
Currently he is a govt. teacher in upper primary school in Tehsil Zila. But, as he said, the respect and honour which he had got in Vidya Bharati schools have never been received in any other institutions.
Mr Kumar’s major subject was Sanskrit and all essential qualities of an excellent teacher and is an inspiration to his students. He was always appreciated for his student’s performances.
Apart from teaching, Mr Kumar is also a Karya karta in RSS. He always takes initiatives in joining hands to help people who have been hit by natural calamities like floods, cyclones etc. He has helped many small towns who are deprived of basic needs like water, electricity etc. He believes in social service and has always taught his students to help the victims of natural calamities whenever in need.
In VidyaBharati schools, students are taught to respect their teachers and follow the path shown by them. Hence all the teachers have the added responsibility to become good role models and exceptional leaders to their students as well.
Mr Kumar says that he might be a teacher and Vidya Bharati has taught him a lot during his association with the institution, but education can be more or less depending on the individual, but the ethics, the devotion which every student gets from Vidya Bharati schools, should be never forgotten. Students who have been from Vidya Bharati should not be selfish and should have faith in nationalism for their entire life.
Vidya Bharati Purv Chatra Parishad is extremely thankful to Mr Anil Kumar for sharing his inspirational story with the community.
