Only an effective educational setup can bring out the best from the learners, thus improving the quality of life and establishing a progressive and productive society (Mohan et al. , 2007). Teaching profession has historically been viewed as the labor of love and kindness. It has many intrinsic and extrinsic rewards for people entering the pedagogical arena. However, teaching is not without its inherent problems. According to Salovey et al. (2000), individuals differ as to their abilities to practice effective control over their emotional lives. Such individual differences are now thought of as difference in emotional intelligence (Salovey and Mayer, 1990).
