English_Master April 30, 2015 No Comments
AN IDEAL TEACHER Teachers are here, teachers are there. But A friendly teacher is very rare. Most of the teachers today are no good. They think of their job in terms of money and do not have the welfare of the students and the nation at heart. But all the teachers are not just rotten and fit for the dust like yesteryear’s dry leaves. Here and there are exceptions. Now and then we have capital examples of teachers who need to be worshipped. An ideal teacher is as rare as a dodo. He is a near impossibility in these days of getting rich quickly. The teachers like other professionals are in the system and want to make as much money as possible and as quickly as they can do it. That puts idealism out of action. The flame dies for want of oil. It never gets a fair chance to live and lighten the world. An ideal teacher pursues his job with a spirit of devotion and dedication. He understands the students and the students understand him.

They take no interest in recreational items. They try to cram some important questions. The more they read, the more they forgot. They feel nervous and confused. They burn the midnight oil for preparing themselves for the examination. Even after learning a lot, they feel quite blank. They seek divine help and pray to God to help them pass the examination.

In fact, fear of the examination hangs so heavy on their mind that they do not have even a wink of sleep throughout the night. They are puzzled. Those...

For about many years, in Kerala as well as over India, there has been a growing interest in the study of the issues of human rights of women due to their abuse rather than their enjoyment. In addition, there have been many concerted efforts by women individually and in organization to protect women rights. As a result, the women in Kerala have overcome a little bit of the very elementary stage of equality. However, the full-fledged human right of women is at stake.
