Teaching used to be a good profession and had a lot of respect…in the ancient times. Drona asked for a fee..and it was not negotiated. He was given a house, a seat in the ‘darbar’ and a lot of respect in the kingdom.

After that parents tell them…’must not have got a clerical job in the government..that is why they are here…’ so kids have no respect for teachers. The parent feels he has a complex compared to the teacher…but he knows he earns more than the teacher 🙂
