In my opinion this piece must be read by every person, be it a teacher or a student. I am in complete agreement with every statement of reflection given in the post, sir. This I believe is why I have always felt the enthusiasm in all of the sessions where you had been the speaker. Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam was quoted as saying, “Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, calibre and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me.” This in my view is the aspect that separates a good teacher from a great one. Teachers, irrespective of place or type of knowledge, have the power to shape a person’s future. But apart from teaching alone this article speaks in volumes of another attribute. It is the act of assumption. Albeit assumption is an abstract action, it does hold significant influence on a person’s real action & behaviour. It is not only about the class where the person is either a teacher or a learner, but it is applicable to various aspects of one’s life. The “positive assumption” as pointed out has the power to compel a positive action from a person while eradicating the roots of inhibitions that he/she might be carrying. Many a times, we break relations, ties, or even act prematurely based on a false assumption. If only we controlled our assumptions and properly reflected on it before any of our actions, we not only might, but we will make the world a better place.
