Everybody has some aims in life. It is very important. A life without an aim is like a boat without a rudder. But choosing a career in such a cutthroat age of competition is really a difficult task.
Different people have different aims in their life according to their tastes and temperament. Some people want to become technocrats like doctors, engineers, scientists while many want to become bureaucrats like IAS, IPS, AND IFS.
Some dream to become educationists, while for others politics holds great attraction. A few are lured to pursue their career in anti-social activates. There are people who have a craze to become poets, writers, and novelists. To say, different people, different choices.
I am not a highly ambitious man. I am modest by nature. I do not want to be a multi-millionaire. The profession of teaching has been very attractive to me. This has been my childhood dream. The sole aim of my life is to serve society to become a good citizen. To me, teaching appears to be the best way to serve society.
I belong to the lower middle class of society. Naturally, I have to face several difficulties in my life. The difficulties encountered during the journey of my life made me realize that lack of education is the biggest problem to which I will devote my life to spreading literacy to every nook and corner of society so as to remove the darkness of illiteracy. It is a shame that one-fourth of our population still does not know how to read and write even after over six decades of independence. In terms of women’s education, the picture is all the more gloomy. Unless we are educated we cannot make all-around progress.
I would be particularly sensitive to the needs of the weaker section of society. I would work hard to bring change to their lives. When this section of society is educated, we will have a totally different society. There will be no superstitions when they will be educated. I will always be available to attend to their queries whatever arise. I will arrange extra classes for those who find it difficult to keep pace with the regular class.
I am fully aware that I’ll have to face lots of hardships. A teacher’s life is hard. He does not command the respect he deserves. This profession is looked down upon as of lowly status. A teacher’s life is full of drudgery. I will not be concerned about the earnings. I will try my best to make the students good citizens. I will help them in broadening their outlook. I’ll groom their personality and shape their characters. I’ll groom their personality and shape their characters. I’ll try to inculcate in them good moral values. So that India has good citizens to take it on the path of progress and prosperity in which everyone has a dignified life full of equality of opportunities. According to great educationist and our former president Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, “Teachers are the custodians of the highest values.”
