      1. It’s the teacher who plays the role of a mother most of a child’s school life. He who have to feed the knowledge initially when the student is immature and infant like. Gradually at toddler stage, when the student is ready for the adventure, the explorer within him awakes with interest. Till this adventure begins it’s totally up to the teacher’s wisdom to prepare the student for learning. Be the teacher who takes the responsibility for the psychological aspect as well. You cannot expect responsibility from a student at infant stage. If the teaching interests the student will naturally become dedicated.

  1. Well, Teacher is one who even after demise will his teachings stay on. You continue to be there personifying the teacher if you follow his teachings. What does successful passing on mean? It means gen-next are made to understand the value of what they have inherited and realise their responsibilities toward it. For example, Adi Shankaracharya is still very much alive. He is discussed, debated, understood, misunderstood, contested, followed, admired and adored. Thanks to his disciples. Hope this proves my point.
