I sat at the back bench in my class, avoiding the steers of my teacher. I used to put a hand on my mouth while laughing to cover the ugliness of my broken black tooth. For me life was a meaning less struggle without any productive output. Dawn defused into days and evenings converted into night in an endless circle.  

 

One day our teacher cracked a joke, every body was laughing, I was giggling too but covered my mouth to conceal my broken tooth. My teacher was watching this; he came near me and slapped me on my face. Everyone in the class was stunned, I froze with fear, I did not even knew my fault. Then he spoke “why you always cover your face when you laugh, what are you afraid of, your classmates, they all have a complex or another. Don’t be afraid of the people. Face the world head-on and it will give you the way … the way to success.

 

Now I am the editor in chief of three monthly magazines and Pakistan’s largest tender providing web site. When I was honored with national performance award for my contributions in tendering, I remembered the slap of me teacher and my eyes became moist. It was the slap that changed my destiny.
