Turning the wheel…

…..when the blue water plays with the shore to tell something…..

With a moist heart…

No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why!- Author Unknown

It’s been one year now since Iqbal sir and Madan sir left us forever.  It was the evening of 11th June’12, that our revered Sir bade us final goodbye without saying anything. There are no words to describe the grief felt by his near and dear ones – such was the demise. We have all their vivid memories.

Iqbal Sir was a great teacher, a mentor, a counselor and a friend for his students. His competence showed in everything he undertook. His Dedication keeps our heart moist. When the heart is moist, your life brings everything back.

Iqbal sir

He was such a support system for students that they always confided in him; his support was not only restricted to good academics, but much beyond the numbers. He had an aura that anybody, any time could approach him for guidance, to speak his heart out. He was connected with his students much above his stature as a principal.

When asked for help, he NEVER said no. He always went out of his way to make sure that his students knew he loved them, that he was proud of his students. He always boosted the morale of his students and always gave them strength to face life. He taught his students to be gracious in victory and to learn from defeat but to NEVER give up.  Sir, you were a tower of strength to all of us.

Today all we have are silent and precious memories. People like Iqbal Sir may die physically but they never die in spirit. Their presence is always felt in thoughts.  Writing this just brought tears in my eyes.

जो घनीभूत पीड़ा थी

मस्तक में स्मृति-सी छायी,

दुर्दिन में आँसू बनकर

वह आज बरसने आयी।

  – जयशंकर प्रसाद (आँसू)

I would like to say that no one else would have the same relationship you had with your students Sir. We will always miss you! You were a tower of strength to all of us!

This post is an attempt to compile as many memories related to Iqbal sir as possible. We are going to make a book. Feel free to add your own feelings in the comments or send an email at jnvkatihar@gmail.com
