Here is a teacher who has earned respect from his students by dint of his hard and honest work. Hundreds of his students are engineers, doctors and bureaucrats serving across the length and breadth of the country. Ballabh Ram Gupta, fondly called Guru by his disciples, has been a source of inspiration for teachers and students alike. The 75-yearold Gupta also known as Ballabh Bhaisaab, whose engineering career was cut short when he met an accident, damaging his spinal-cord resulting in paralysis to his lower limbs in 1956. Accepting his fate, he started coaching secondary and higher secondary students of science at his home town Hindon. "I am here today because of students, who have inspired me a lot. I have helped them who were financially unable to pay fees and encouraged them to pursue study at any cost,"said Gupta. "He was an amazing man, till now I could not have found a teacher like him. He had a special kind of relationship
and it's because of him I have reached at this level. He is a real guru," said Vineet Goyal, deputy inspector general of police, Midnapore Range, who was a student of Gupta. Dr RS Gupta, director of Jaipur hospital said that Ballabh was a real teacher who has been very dedicated to his teaching. "He is my mentor as he has made huge differences in my life. I respect him and wish the same quality could have continued in today's world also," said Dr Gupta. "Teachers need to continuously monitor the students in order to be aware of any difficulty faced by the students," expresses Gupta, currently running his institute in Jaipur. "Batches after batches of students went through his teachings and reached milestones we could not have imagined without him," said Ashok Arya, commissioner, customs and central exercise.
