Editor’s note: We will be posting the winning entries from ‘My Rockstar Moment’ contest this entire week. We hope you enjoy these inspiring stories by our rockstar teachers.
Here’s the Rockstar moment of Ms. Promil Bali of Titiksha Public school.
When water gushing in reached almost 3 feet high, we got alarmed. News broadcast announced it as Flash floods. Soon furniture, beds, and possessions were floating. My senior students suggested me to use bed boxes to evacuate junior students at a faster speed. Seeing their courage, determination and will to help, we started the evacuation process. Tears streaming down, heart thumping, effortlessly lifting children harbouring them to safety was prime-most concern. Rising muddy water with worms and insects, disconnected electricity in the dormitories were no hurdles for us to save 350 boys and 200 girls from the hostel.
