Conductor Sir

When my cousin told she was shocked to find her Maths teacher in the role of a bus conductor, that statement made me a little puzzled. That Sir must have left the teaching job because the pay scale in an English medium school is very low. The salary provided there will not be ample for a middle class person to carry out his daily needs. But the status that our society gives for a teacher is much higher than a conductor. According to her, “It was hard to absorb a scene where a person who had once taught us very tough formulas, now collecting tickets and opening the door for passengers.”


  1. A country that does not respect it's teachers are seriously on a downhill :(
