    It is praiseworthy that you acknowledged Mr. Som Gurung’s presence who was your teacher at Drugryal High School prior to your response to the worry about declining respect for the teachers. It really made good context and was inspiring.

    Best Wishes!

      Sorry, I forgot to mention that this happened at Paro College of Education on Saturday 2nd October, 2010, during the talk on “Democracy, Parliament, Legislative Process & Role of National Council in Democratic system of Government” by the Hon’ble Members of the National Council.

  3. Thank you Tashi. I just wanted to say to all the young teachers that even though each profession may claim importance over others, it is teaching that sets the foundations. And even though teachers may feel that where their students take up different professions; some perceived more important than others while they still remain teachers after decades, respect for them only grows because success of a teacher I know, remains in the success of their students as good humans. And so like many others, it was a moment of joy for me to address the gathering with Mr.Som Guring sitting in the front, perhaps feeling proud of his achievement of having contributed so much like so many of you.
