School Boy who pays his own fees

Last week we called all our students' parents to mid-term result day. And in the presence of the parents we announced how we mistakenly collected Nu.100 extra from junior classes as school fees and that we were going to give that back. In my class VII C, I have 24 students whose parents came in one after another to sign on mark sheet and to collect the money.
Suddenly there was one father who didn't take the money, and asked me to give it to the boy himself! I insisted him on taking the money, reasoning that the money must go to where it came from, or it may disappear between school and home. The father proudly said that the money belonged to the boy, he paid his own school fee and even helped parents in household shopping from his winter earnings.
I looked at lean Tej Prasad for a long time and admired the man in him. I made the class applaud for him and asked them to get inspired from him. Age should not be an excuse. For the first time I loved the boy who pays his own fees more than the Monk who sold his Ferrari!

His will and dedication is so admirable at his age perhaps I was chiding my parents for not getting me what I wanted...something to learn from the story. Thanks for sharing the experience Passu.

Dear Singay Wangmo, Rikku and Tshering,Thanks for reading the story of the inspiring boy and agreeing with me... He makes me feel proud and sometimes this same pride makes me feel guilty- I wasn't so much like him when i was a boy of his age...

Perhaps if all our students realized the value of earning and standing up, things would look brighter and better.
