When we look for inspiration in real life, our teachers and professors are the first ones to come to mind.
But this mathematics professor did something during his lecture that makes us wonder if the entire fabric of our society has been broken.
In a shameful act, Charan Singh, a mathematics professor at a women’s college in Haryana has been caught on camera explaining the subject of “Love” to his girl students.
In the class, he uses mathematical equations to explain the difference between a Crush, Romantic Love and Friendship.
One of the students recording the lecture on camera and it was shown to the principal. Taking immediate action against the professor, he has been suspended.
The video has been since then shared widely on various social media platforms.
Singh can be seen explaining “Love” using three formulae:
Closeness – Attraction = Friendship
Closeness + Attraction = Romantic Love
Attraction – Closeness = Crush
After being caught on camera and being widely criticized, the professor has submitted a written apology to the students.
But we need to question ourselves how did we reach this stage where teachers are seen abusing, raping and shaming their students?
In our culture, teachers hold a very respectful place. A famous world-renowned poet, Kabir, once said:
“Kabir Guru Aur Sadhu Ku Sish Nababai Jaye
Kahai Kabir So Sevaka, Maha Param Pad Paye”
(If God and my Teacher were to stand before me, who would I first greet?
I will choose my Teacher; for it was through his teachings that I saw God.)
Hardly he knew that his beautiful lines will lose their meaning in the modern world.
Some shameless teachers will turn themselves into predators, who will manipulate our kids for their own selfish pleasures.
