Vyaaptam Yenam charaacharam
Tatpadam Darshitam Yena.
Tasmai Sri Gurave Namaha
This means that Guru can guide us to the supreme knowledge of that which pervades all the living and non-living beings in the entire Universe (namely Brahman). I salute such a Guru.
A teacher is the one who is known as the base of our future or we can say teacher is the one who shows or teaches us the path of our life. I entered in MCC College scared to interact with any of the teachers and there I met Prof. ARCHANA KADAM. She is a brilliant person. She has done her M.Com in Accountancy and she has even done B.Ed and is NET qualified and currently she is doing her MBA and she is a full time faculty of our college.
I still remember the day it was the beginning of our Semester 2 and she was the teacher of Business Environment. She entered the class and when I saw her for the very first time I was scared and made up assumptions in my mind that she is a strict professor. But as it is said “Never judge a person by the way they appear” and same was the case here. She is by far the best teacher I have ever met. She is my favorite teacher as well as she is the best mentor and a brilliant tutor. She has the wonderful ability of being able to motivate students in a down to earth way. She is a very understanding teacher. Infact in semester 2 we got very less time to interact with each other. She treats her students like her own children, understands them and solves their problem in the best possible and easiest way. She always tries to remain calm and help her students. I can ask her any question at any time without any hesitation. She was the one who helped me to get of my shell and I was able to give good presentation in front of my other BMS mates. The greatest thing I learned from her is that I can do it. I got a voice to believe in myself.
It was in semester 3 when I actually came close to her. She was teaching us Management Accounts and as I was from Arts stream, it became very difficult for me to manage and learn everything in regular lectures. So she was the one who took extra lectures for all the Non-Commerce students in college itself and spent ample amount of time with us. We developed a good teacher-student relationship. She is an all rounder. She taught us marketing management and I must say she is a genius when it comes to marketing. She has ample amount of knowledge which she can share with her students. Whenever I had doubts in management accounts she used to sit beside me on bench and solve the sum together with me. It was surprising that how can a professor be so friendly with her students? That’s the main reason why Archana Mam occupied a space in my heart. I respect her a lot and owe her lot of gratitude for always being co-operative. She is the only faculty member who is teaching us right from our first year except for semester 1. In Semester 4 she taught us Research methodology and CRM. The most dry subjects of the semester were given to her but still she managed to give the best of her knowledge to us. She has no greed. She always gives her full time to her students. She has always motivated me throughout all the semesters. Till date she has done a wonderful job and she is very intelligent, respectful, honest and very friendly. I even opted for Archana mam as my project guide for the TYBMS semester 5. Today I am in TY and just sitting on these empty benches and just thinking of our last semester I feel like spending maximum of my time with my favorite professor because I never know where my destiny is tied up. Where I will be after my TYBMS and will I ever be able to meet her or not?
Being a teacher is hard; being a good teacher is even harder. From afternoon to evening as much as I was exhausted after a long day of college, she was so keen on her work. Never till date I have heard from her mouth that she is in no mood to conduct any lectures. In these past three years I have never expressed my feeling to Archana mam and I really want to thank BMS.co.in for conducting such a competition wherein I can express my gratitude, my respect towards my favorite Professor. This is only and only for you mam. Love you a lot mam. Mere words can’t express what I feel for you or how much I respect you. Thank you mam for always being there for me and with me.
