It has been a good 8 years I left “My School”, and still when someone says there’s going to be Teacher’s day celebration in the school or Independence Day is coming all that comes to my mind is “Let’s go to school.!”.
From learning beads counting to doing marks counting in the prelim paper to see whether my marks were as mentioned or not, it was all seamless. It never seemed to me that I was amongst strangers or that okay I’m in school or that beware of someone and something. Amrit Jyoti was and will always be my true second home, from where going home at the bell of 3pm I wished if it lasted a bit longer!!
I still remember when I needed a week’s leave for a wedding and Angana teacher made me write on a paper that I’d bring 10% above the prelim percentage and that one promise changed my life for which today I proudly put the prefix Dr. before my name.
There are innumerable such incidents and stories with not only me but each and every student who has been a student of AJS! For the teachers be the teachers on and off the school hours and even after it. And not once but for the life that I’ve lived till date all the teachers have been there for me guiding me through what people call the “Real life” because as my father would always tell me till 10th STD that you don’t know what and how cruel the world is because Amrit Jyoti keeps u protected!! I didn’t believe him at that time, but I do today and know what it means!
From Bharti teacher and Lt. Chandra teacher to Manji sir, Kalidas sir and Kamlesh sir, each and everyone teaches you some or the other important essence of life which stays with you lifelong.
