The Onden Master
Ex HM AHS
It was in1963 that I
just joined my eighth standard class at AH School. Many days passed but our
class didn’t have a regular class teacher. Well, imagine a headless class with mischievous
boys, many of whom were out grown in size and aged for that class. A few little boys like me
were sandwiched among them in the class and found it extremely uncomfortable.
We told the problems to some friendly teachers and got a stock response saying
that the new class teacher will come and join anytime soon and thereafter he would
take care of your well being. We prayed for that day and waited impatiently.
One fine morning a lean fellow clad with a spotless shirt and dhoti arrived in
the class and introduced us as our new class teacher. Many grown up laughed and
a few smiled and the weakest of all sported despair. Wondered will he be able
to do justice to his job!
Alas! He did a wonderful job as teacher, mentor and counsellor. Unfortunately it was only that year I had the opportunity to be their in his class. I never remembered him after leaving school. When I saw the obituary put up by his family members it was already five years over after he left the world. Sad indeed!
