Before being a political laeder, President Pranab Mukherjee was a teacher and a journalist.

President Pranab Mukherjee lived some moments as a teacher again on Friday. He taught political science to senior secondary students of a government school in the President’s Estate on the eve of Teacher’s Day.

Before having a political career, President Pranab Mukherjee was a college teacher and a journalist.
He told the students how the constitution of the country was framed after 300 people struggled over its contents for a long time.

The constitution came into being after 3 years of Indian Independence. He even discussed his personal experiences as a student.

“I was not a very good student. I would complain to my mother that I would not go to school anymore as I had to walk for three to four kilometers everyday. My mother then told me that since I didn’t have any other option, I would have to study hard”, President Mukherjee said.
