generation gap

straight from the heart
came across a scene that drove home the point that students relate to someone closer to their age. being twice the age of an average student doesn't help. the thinking, i suppose, is more conservative as one nears the magic figure of two scores. it is easier to speak to someone who has similar frame of reference- i am getting into journo. for that one needs to keep up with the changes around(boy, how things are a changing) and after an age (differs from one to another) it just doesn't matter. working in a college is advantageous- the close vicinity of the young makes it imperative to keep in touch. so, you guys out there know the secret behind young looking lecturer. i can't but thank each of you for keeping the spirit young.

Very true sir. It also depends on what your relationship with students is. Age no bar.

ok i guess it goes like this the more excited a teacher is in class he/she can expect equal or even more excitment from the students. atleast this is what i feel...

Dear Sir,i am so excited to be feeling connected to that little world of a Friend in College disguised as a Lecturer and putting our thinking caps on all over again.
this i guess is the right forum to convey to you how much you have meant to all of us,not to mention myself.Being candid the generation gap never seemed to be prevail.
Thank You Sir for being there.
