Lessons on what not to do as a teacher

Father Willmes, my gentle hostel superintendent at Xavier’s Jaipur

Vijay Bagaria

Vijay Bagaria studied as a “hostel boy” in St. Xavier’s, Jaipur from 1955 when he joined in the Kindergarten to 1966 when he passed his ISC Examination. He moved to Tinsukia, Assam where he completed his B. Com. with Honours in Business Management from Tinsukia College (affiliated to Dibrugarh University). Simultaneously, he worked in his family business of tea processing machinery production. Later, he moved to Tezpur, Assam, and then to Kolkata looking after his company T & I Pvt Ltd as its Executive Chairman.

In my school, I was watching a hockey match on the “lower field” as part of a large bunch of spectators. Suddenly, I felt someone tapping my shoulder from the back. It was none other than our Hostel Superintendent Rev. Fr. J. Willmes. I could sense that something was seriously wrong. Else, why would Father call me aside in the middle of a hockey match?

Working with Prof. P. C. Mathur

Alok Mathur

Alok Mathur graduated in mathematics, economics and statistics from the University of Rajasthan. He also did his Masters in Political Science from the same institution. He worked very closely with Prof. P. C. Mathur on various projects. He has vast experience in computer programming and is proficient in all aspects of computer related issues.

It takes a special person

To teach a child in class

To just keep his attention

In a world that moves so fast.

To show a child he is unique

With talents deep inside

To help to build his confidence

So, he can beam with pride.
