My Master  never believed in teaching. He believed in enabling the students to learn by themselves. I was a salesman all my life and there is an axiom in a salesman’s life: A salesman never sells; he makes the customer buy. Similarly, in education we should not teach, or at least overtly we should not be teaching. We must make the student think he is learning. The student must have his self-respect intact – “Yes, sir, I have learnt.” Not that, “I have been taught!” He must be able to proudly say the truth: “My teacher indicated the way. The rest I did.” We must be path-finders.
