am a student of tenth standard giving my boards. Today is my English Language paper and the essay I have opted is an opportunity to display my satisfaction on having successfully accomplished a task I had to say that they had taught them. I too had thought alike. On reaching home, I told my grandmother about the whole episode of the project and the ideas of my friends. My Grandma became a little sad on hearing my views of befooling the teacher, and advised to do it seriously for the effort would be worthwhile and rewarding.
She told me that it is a noble task to teach someone, and we who are fortunate should not take them for granted. I could grasp the meaning behind her words and seriously thought over it and next day, I asked my maid’s daughter, if she was interested in studying. She used to accompany her mother and was around 10 years old. Initially she declined, and I had to pursue her hard, allure her through small gifts I would give her, if she studied with diligence, and finally she agreed. So now I was a teacher and my task had begun. I prepared
myself I would be dedicated to my task and prove to myself that I could do it.
I gave her few books of basics of Hindi and maths and one notebook. Though it was a Herculean task, but I endeavoured for I would not look back. Initially she was a slow learner, but soon with my initiative she got eager to learn everyday and in a month she was able to write Hindi alphabets and numbers from one to hundred.
From next month I started with small two letter words and small calculations. She was quick to perceive and learn very copiously. At times I used to get exasperated for a lot of time was to be devoted, but I managed for the satisfaction. I was getting was immense.
Next month we got her admitted to school in III std. and she did very well with my help and stood I in her class. The experience boosted my dignity in my own eyes apart from others, and I felt on top of the world for doing something that was indeed taken up : initially in a mood of frolicsome challenge.
