गर सिर्फ़ मुसलसल क़तलोगारद ही मज़हब है
तो ऐसे मज़हब से ‘इनकार’…..ही मज़हब है !!
( If bloodshed has to continue endlessly in the name of religion
Then being religious is, to put a permanent full stop to religion )
A teacher’s job is unique in one way – he / she, does God’s work, irrespective of the fact, whether he or she is, a ‘believer’ or a ‘non-believer’.
So, in a way, God / Creator, is the Ultimate Employer. And God has no religion as you can not have a Christian / Hindu / Muslim, God. And when the Creator happens to be the Manufacturer…. as well, then the teachers are definitely, a part of the “after-sales service team”. And automatically,schools, colleges become kind of …”His”….Service Centers.
So…we …..HAVE TO……implement / follow / endorse, our Ultimate Employer’s policies, at our work place.
Moreover, in the Indian context, a teacher is surprisingly, rated even above God. As the famous saint-poet has said :
“गुर गोविंद दोनो खड़े, का के लागूँ मैं पाओं
बलिहारी गुरु अपने, गोविंद दीओ मिलाए”!!
“(My teacher and God both are in front of me, before whom I should bow first? I salute the teacher first, because the teacher only introduced and made me, attain God ) !! “
But let me very clearly and immediately clarify here that these above lines are, from a student’s / disciple’s point of view because the student should totally submit to the teacher. However, the teacher should not think himself / herself so. He / she serves the society, particularly serves, his / her students and, should a need arise, he or she should always be ready even to polish ( symbolically ) his / her students’ shoes.
However, the point which we are making here is, if God is ‘God’ without any religion ( and still remains very much religious ), a teacher should also be…..totally religious without following / endorsing any one religion.
As God can be and …..IS…..the Ultimate and the Final Religious Entity without following any religion, same way, we can also be, following His example.
We already know that “a great leader, leads by example” and in this case…..the Greatest Leader has…..already….LED….by example and thereby, set an example, to be followed.
Therefore, ladies and gentlemen,
Let everyone or at least, every teacher, be religious…….without / minus “religions”. And for those so called “teachers”, who pollute their students’ minds with fanaticism :
उस्ताद और शैतान दोनो खड़े किसके मारू मैं लात
लात पड़े उस्ताद के, जो शैतान को लाया…जमात
( Mentor, Devil both stand in front, first kick should go to whom
The mentor gets the first kick, as he brought Devil in class room )
‘religiously’ religion-less and ‘religion-less-ly’ religious !!
