Teachers Day which is celebrated today provides an opportunity to travel down memory lane and look at some of the teachers either behind the camera or in front of it who added prestige to the role. One of the most famous teachers in the world of Hindi cinema has been Kedar Sharma, who according to the lore had the guts to wield the stick against Raj Kapoor and made him what he eventually became. But these kind of guru-shishya examples are difficult to find out in the present times, and it would be much better to etch out these relationships through the cinematic oeuvre.
JAGRITI: When a teacher is talked about and how he can inspire a generation and beyond, JAGRITI is the film that immediately comes to mind, and the manner in which Abhi Bhattacharya had enacted the role, especially in the song- Aao bachcho tumhe dikhaye jhanki Hindustan ki- has made him one of the most endearing teachers in the world of Hindi cinema.
