A letter to my mentor
Dear Bhatt Sir,
I still remember the first day I joined your coaching classes. I was so scared; first of all from the subject maths and then from your harsh voice. Little did I realise that those who are harsh from outside are so soft from inside.
I am thankful to you for what I am today. Gradually, I learnt that a teacher loves his student because of his/her behaviour and not only of his grades. You were the one who made me aware of my hidden talents.
You only insisted that I should join a regular college that will build my confidence and yes, it surely did. If today, I am able to talk to strangers and get my work done, it is simply because of you.
I was touched by your involvement in my marriage. You wanted to know every detail of my extended family, just like a father. I loved the times I met you whenever I used to come at my mom’s place. And then you would play with my kids too.
You were my true guru whom I would have worshipped my whole life. A guru comes before God as he is the one who brings changes in you and makes you closer to God.
Your sudden demise shattered me into bits. I could never accept that you are not there in my life anymore. But nature has its own rule for life and death.
I hope you must be proud of my achievements today. I owe my little success to you, sir.
Your ever scared student,
