Life's a journey and mine has been quite an adventurous one because I've a tendency to ask a Why for everything.
Over the years, I've stopped doing things I've not understood and agreed to, questioned traditions, changed a few in my family, broke stereotypes, tried multiple careers to understand what I actually like, cut people out of my life gracefully when they didn't understand my priorities or became my peace parasite, got left by people too because they had bad choices obviously😛, took worse decisions and later suffered too, changed cities and countries only to understand that my heart lies in India, quit jobs that paid money but not respect, one being recently.
When I sit and recall everything and try to understand why it happened, it all well connects the dots. So, no regrets, no guilts.
After major introspection, I can safely say that people I want to spend most of my time with, who I find utmost pleasure with, with who I never get tired and always look forward to go back again, are my students. Past and present. Their love is unconditional. Their energy is unending. Their innocence is heart melting. Their eyes shine with dreams and their hearts pour respect.
To offering their tiffins and products of their family business for free, to feet touching sessions before exams, to joy jumping everytime they bump me into restaurants, to innumerable selfies, to helping me setup the laptop with projector daily in class, to them sharing their family issues and every achievement with me even after passing out the college, to their rhythmic good morning wishes in the class, to Teacher's Day wishes, to inviting me to their siblings weddings - and to everything else that's a feeling and not just event; how can one not melt over such pure selfless love?! I've a disguised blessing in the name of the profession. Teachers maybe underpaid but are over loved and that more than settles everything for people like me who want to live for form over substance.
