My Ambition in Life
Everyone has his ambition. He or she wants to become something in life. The paramount (supreme, big) question is the choice of a profession, the career one likes to adopt in life.
`As many ambitions .as many people ‘goes an old saying but let us be definite and precise in the matter of choosing a career. Some want to become doctors or engineers or top class scientists. There are others who wish to pursue teaching or nursing or driving. Whatever line of action you ‘want to follow, is entirely in your hands. There is no pressure. Everything should be according to your taste, means, interest, aptitude and bent of mind.
My ambition in life is to become a teacher. Teaching is a noble profession. You teach someone. You make a man out of an ass. You dispel darkness. You are the harbinger of light and brilliance. Your teaching and learning go side by side. A lamp cannot ignite (burn) another lamp till it is burning itself. A teacher is said to be a nation-builder. He is the maker of the destinies of his pupils. He is their pilot and charger. He teaches them the good things of life. He guides them in the path of life. He is their friend and philosopher. He is their true guru.
To fulfil this ambition, I am studying languages and literature. There; after, I shall enlist my name for a teaching course say, B. Ed or M. Ed. When I am qualified, I shall pursue the job of teaching with a bang. I shall spare no stone unturned to sharpen the appetite for knowledge of my students. They will gain much from me. I will enrich their life with my own intelligence and experience.
I know the teaching job earns scanty respect from society. But who can efface the names of Gurus like Aurobindo, Tagore and Vivekananda? I shall strive to follow in their footsteps. I shall become an ideal, teacher, a light-house for my students.
