Being Grateful...

There are people who enter our life for a brief period and cause profound changes....I have often wondered how to express my gratitude for these noble souls...yea, I am talking about teachers...the extremely dedicated ones...who take the responsibility of shaping out beautiful individuals out of raw potential...much like a sculptor who shapes clay into an adorable statue...

I mean, I have visited them in later life, said "Thank You" in so many words, even tried to put to practice what I have learnt from them...well, not chemical equations or physics formulae but things more profound...a word of inspiration when someone is unsure of him/herself, a proud smile that shares the happiness of another's success, a patient ear for a sad saga ...all of this and more...

But still, somewhere there is a void...a voice in my heart which says I am not being grateful enough...that I haven't communicated my appreciation and gratefulness sufficiently...

I wish there is someway hearts could communicate to hearts...to pass on the message that....I owe you...and I owe you big time.....

P.S - Post inspired by an accidental sighting of fan club communities in Orkut dedicated to some of my favorite teachers, which triggered a lot of priceless memories....

Post dedicated to the loving memory of a teacher suffering from Parkinson's disease....

there r communities dedicated to AO and Saramma teacher...the one on AO is really cute..filled with classic AO statements... There r others dedicated to engg college staff... but that's mostly nonsense as can be expected.

AO is suffering from Parkinson's...I had met him once last yr...he had stopped tuitions...(I am crying now...he is my fav teacher) and when I went to invite him for wedding he had gone to US.
