Tell us about yourself – Your overall experience in the education field, National / International experiences, variety of work you have done in the education field.
I am in this field since 2004. I started my career as a college lecturer in small-town Garhshankar Punjab. I, then switched to the coaching field of training young minds for IIT and medical colleges. My overall experience for teaching is greater joy when I have a marker in my hand, I forget myself and students become my first and last priority. The interactive class is my main aim. I provide the required pathway for every student by giving them knowledge of each field. I proudly say my students are not only Engineers Or Doctors, but some serve the army, some are actors, some are artists and are teachers like me and I am proud of all of them.
How did you choose the field of education? Was it by choice or some inspiration from someone or a childhood dream? Please help with more details

How do you handle a discipline problem in today's world? What is the most difficult aspect of discipline for you?
Indiscipline is caused due to lack of gaining of attention of students, which basically originates from less knowledge or lack of lesson plan. Remember the battle is between the knowledge and ignorant student, not teachers and students. Teachers enforce discipline by methods unpopular in students, which makes the tussle between students and teacher which is a vicious cycle, For me most difficult aspect of discipline is striking the right cord between skillful students and unskill students as training them simultaneously requires highly interpersonal skills.
If you were to change 1-2 things in our Indian education system, what would be those & why?
1.End rote learning.
2.More application-based studies

Always take guidance from their student's teachers regarding what content the student should watch online. Keep the interaction open with your offsprings. Tell them about the importance of books. Be their role model.
If you had not been a teacher or not associated with the education field, what would you have been and why?
Perhaps a scientist because I love the way the universe around us works. I then would have spent a lota of time solving those beautiful equations of working of nature.

Any other things you would like to share about yourself, your profession, your hobbies, your views?
My views, at last, is every student will take something from you, so do not show them or teach or fill them with bad aspects of life. Students carry their teachers teaching lifelong.
How would you rate our website yayskool.com especially this teacher spotlight program? 1 being the worst, 5 being the best.
I would rate Yayskool as 5 out of 5.
The role of a teacher in society is both significant and valuable. It has far-reaching influence on the society he lives in and no other personality can have an influence more profound than that of a teacher. Students are deeply affected by the teacher's love and affection, character, competence, and moral commitment.
Yet teachers don't get their due respect and credit these days. We have started a Teacher Spotlight program where we recognise the effort of these silent and true Heroes of our society and tell their story.
