that students are nnthiog but a reflection of their teachers. Similarly in my point of view some lines are there the mistake of a doctor gets buried with the patient, the mistake of an engineer lies on the road and the mistake of a lawyer lies in the file of court but the mistake of a teacher goes generation after generation. But yes ,as you have mentioned correctly .. if we are positive ,enthu &optimist in our nature than we will able to transfer the same to our students. Thank you Sir for such a nice article.
