I know that it's not only my problem but many of you may have faced it. Teachers often target our parents if we do some mischief in class. You do something nonsensical and teacher will directly throw their same pakaau dialogues, "This shows your family value" or "Is this the way how you talk to your parents at home?" or "Have your parents taught you to talk like this?" This humiliates and snubs us in front of the whole class and we sit quietly by hiding our face as tortoise does when it is touched. What if children start attacking their parents for the quality of teaching they deliver? What if we start poking them for every pakau example they use for making us understand some definitions and terms? What if we say that "Is this how your parents taught you at home?" or "Is this the quality of jokes your parents enjoy with you?" or "Is this the only way of teaching your parents taught you?" or "The way you teach unsuccessfully reflects your family values" :-) If students will start doing so, I am sure that all the teachers will stop showing their Authority in front of us. :-)
Come on Teachers, you have been students too. There is no need of making us feel bad about what we are. You know that you are our King and Ruler today. But that doesn't means that you will kill us for being superior to us. Once we leave campus, you are just a common man to us. I can hit you in local train if I feel that you were the teacher because of whom I got less Internals and I got screwed in my Graduation's final mark-sheet. So, try to be in your limits. You are not those teachers of the traditional period when you charged only 10 paise for the whole day because the main target was to spread knowledge and not to earn money. Today, we know and even you know that you are here to teach us because you are being given a satisfactory salary. You are here to earn money. You have no concerns whether a student have understood the terms and logic or not. This is YOU. This is TODAY's TEACHERS. Now, should we say that it is your parents who taught you to prioritize money over the career of students? When you give 2% in Internals and leave the students in fire to score the rest passing marks in theory, should we say that "This reflects your Family values?" Fatt ke haath mein aa jayegi tumhari, samjhe?
When you give us plethora of questions to be completed as assignments, should we target your family that they make you work so aggressively at home and hence you have this habit of making others work in the same manner?
When you make us leave class just because we are 5 mins late, should we target your parents and say that you are made to stay out of house on the day when you reach 5 minutes late at home?
When you make us feel guilty for a small mistake committed by us, should we target your parents and say that you are being tortured at home and this is the result that you are doing the same with us?
So teachers, remember that if we, students, will come in our original form, you will have to run away from the institution without thinking of the amount of rupees you are being paid for doing nothing in the college. Even you know that a parent never want their child to smoke and drink. You know that a parent will never like their son/daughter roam on roads, gardens, theaters, malls and public places with their girlfriend/boyfriend. You know that a parent never wants to see their children bunking the lecture for which they paid a hefty amount and sit in mall for the whole day. So, if a children does this, he does this because he is being influenced by the people around him. When a student sit between 60 new students, it is obvious that he will adopt some good and bad qualities of those strangers who will start turning into familiar faces. So, stop showing your 2 Rupees aukaat in the class by making a student feel humiliated by targeting his parents. Because, if we are what our parents taught us, then the same applies on you. And if this really gets applied on you, then I am very happy to know that your parents have passed on the traits like Ego, Pakaupanti, Bad Communication Skills, Fake Anger, Greed for money, Carelessness for the future of students, Humiliating others for your good etc.
This is enough. I have already burst out too much. :-)
