The noble profession

My favourite teacher in high school was a gentleman who gave weekly lectures on science outside the school curriculum. Astronomy and its immense sweep was one topic. Another was items of daily life such a the utility of torque in bicycles, the principle of priming in water pumps, the difference between AC /DC. He comes to mind often when I explain something similar to my son.
Today is Teacher's Day in India. It is a time to remember that much of India's current knowledge muscle and technical expertise-based economy owes a lot to millions of unsung teachers who educate generations of young people.
Do you want to post a memory about your teachers? Go ahead and do so.
