“Teacher’s day gives the students to pay tributes to their teachers, who have not only been mentors, but also their guide to life, their friends, their companions and just like their parents. Miss Gulnar, my FIRST Nursery Class Teacher in St. Marry’s Girls High School Hyderabad, is the same for me. I never forget your decent, robust, guiding and caring role in my life. In school all students were just like your own daughters. Now after joining the same profession, I understand why your were so sensitive about your students.
Love you Ms Gulnar!
You always live in the hearts of many students like me.
Thank you, my teacher, for being there,
At times when skies were gray!
Thank you, my teacher, for lending an ear,
When I had things to say!
You showered love on me lavishly
When no one seemed to care!
You brought me joys untold,
To fill my heart with moments of gold!
I would have felt isolated and lonely.
If you had not been there!
I lack the words to let you know:
How much you mean to me!
But I will profusely thank Allah for you,
Until the eternity”, the message of rich tributes concludes.
