“I am a Professor. I Love my Profession” - Professor M.S.Rao
“A teacher who loves learning earns the right and the ability to help others learn.” - Ruth Beechich
Recently one of my relatives asked me, “Why are you inspiring the son of your competitor to pursue PhD? You know that he becomes your competitor and might overtake you as he was 25 years old. He might also overtake your two sons.” I smiled and said, “I am a professor. I love my profession.” I looked at his face to check whether he received my message. It seemed he did not receive my message properly. I explained to him as follows.
I have the habit of inspiring everyone to pursue education, not for employment but for empowerment and enlightenment. It is my job as a professor! Whenever young boys and girls greets me when I was passing on the road, I stop and enquire them whether they are pursuing education. If they don’t pursue education, I implore them to pursue. If they say that they don’t have money, I tell them to work, earn money and spend some time regularly for education. I hail from humble origins and rose from ranks to the present position of professor. I entered into employment when I was barely 18 years old with little education and then worked hard during the day time and studied during night time to acquire many qualifications including the highest academic qualification - PhD, and finally came up of this level. Since I demonstrated it by setting an example to others, I inspire others to follow my path. Once it is possible for me, it is possible for others as well!
A doctor saves the lives of everyone including his enemy as the profession demands it. An engineer builds infrastructure and works for the betterment of society including his detractors. I belong to the noble profession of teaching which is the mother of all professions. Hence, I preach good things to others. I inspire everyone including my students, competitors and the children of competitors to pursue education. Remember, I am a professor and I love my profession!
I don’t have competitors and enemies as I convert my competitors into collaborators and enemies into friends. Above all, I don’t compete with others because I always compete with myself. I don’t mix up my personal life with my professional life. I preach my best to impart not only to my sons but also to my students who love me deeply including my detractors. I will not stay away from my responsibility. I am a professor. I am a preacher. I am a responsible citizen. Above all, I am a responsible global citizen to inspire and contribute my best to make a difference to the world.
“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
