I had a dear friend named Ameen. He was intelligent and was the class-topper.

During the summer vacations, his mother passed away and he became gloomy and moody. He was alone. He would come late to class and the teachers scolded and warned him to be on time or else he would be punished. But he did not change.

My friend took the unfortunate decision to drop out and stopped his course mid-way after he was severely punished by the teacher.

I met him recently and he told me the shocking truth that he was now working in a hotel. Then I realised that it takes only a moment for your life to change.

Teachers will scold us like our parents because they want us to be better individuals. They have nothing to lose, but we have everything to win.
