Reshma My Teacher

Sherpur Ramchandrapur High School 07/01/2019

Reshma is one of my teachers. She is the one who taught me to come out of my lonely ‘self’ to become ‘united’ with all others like me. But who is Reshma and who are her students? Reshma Khatun is a differently able student of Sherpur Ramchandrapur High School in Magrahat-1 block. Her school, her teachers and classmate Anushri Chakraborty provided her the ideal environment for an inclusive education, right from the time she got admitted to Class XI in 2016. A Peer Group was formed in their school comprising Anushri and a few other students. Anushri was the leader of the team. She was a constant company for Reshma for two years and that included right from walking together to the college and returning home from there, spending as much time together as possible. Both as classmates and friends, the only aim of Anushri and the others in their group was to imbibe a sense of self-awareness and instill a degree of self-confidence in Reshma. As Anushri says, “Working for others, one only gains more knowledge and self-confidence. Reshma gave us that opportunity and education. She made us all realize and feel the happiness hidden in the transformation of an individual and aware member of a self-reliant group.”
