|Prof. Anil Gupta Ji|
|A poster shared among teachers|
Once, a student asked him a question related to spiders and he didn’t know the answer. The not-knowing didn’t let him sleep that night. Our teachers who have also faced difficulties in answering such questions in the past felt motivated after listening to Prof. Gupta’s experiences. It was great to learn how curiosity can turn a roadblock into a learning opportunity. A learner should never stop asking questions and remain curious. Curiosity makes learning more effective and enjoyable. A curious student not only asks questions, but also actively seeks out answers to his/her questions.
Another lesson that we learnt from Prof. Gupta is that one should express their thoughts freely. He also shared with us that an individual is living a meaningful life when at the end of the day, sleep is waiting for a person and not when he/she has to force himself/herself to bed. He shared that anything is possible when our minds are open and free and full of energy and enthusiasm. We are grateful to Prof. Anil Gupta for guiding and motivating our teachers with his lived experiences of teaching the students unconditionally and serving the world.
To conclude, we would like to share a beautiful piece of poetry written by one of our teachers Mahak Saini:
