With fast changing social and economic milieus of society, our education system and especially teachers are put into compartment of scrutiny. Subjects and topics are taught in class as if they are static, emotionless, compartmentalised and predictable. An attempt has been made to highlight the relationship that needs to be institutionalised in the educational system between teacher-student to make the learning process a dynamic wheel for change. Education is about understanding the values of what one teaches, studies and has respect for that [un]learning. This paper attempts to explore the identifiable characteristics of teachers-student relationship, which tries to defy the persisting narration sickness believed to have permeated in the existing educational institutions.
