The class was the noisiest among the four sections of Class 4. The class teacher of this section-the section C, was Sir Dipankar Chatterjee . He was the Maths teacher. He was a wonderful teacher and cracked jokes at times to keep the class energetic.
The good teacher is the one who does not beat but crack jokes. Sir Ronnie Reid wasn't like Sir Dipankar. He didn't crack jokes and didn't beat. He was our English Language teacher. He used to enter the class and sit in the teacher's seat and teach. Like the normal class that day too he entered the class and took his seat. The only difference was that he had brought our homework notebooks that he had taken for evaluation. Sir sat and called me to his place. Whenever a teacher calls you the first question your mind frames is "What wrong have I done? "
Similar was the case with me. I was a reserved child and so I barely spoke in the class. I had never stood up to give any answer and that day Sir had called me to his seat! I immediately had goosebumps and I moved slowly towards his seat. He asked me lovingly, "Are the essays written by you? "" Yes Sir! ", I replied feebly. He continued, " You have written them well! "That day I realised that I may not speak well but I am not that bad at writing. Thank you Sir for helping me find my potential to write well. To inspire anyone, smallest of smallest incidents have the capability.
