In India teachers day is celebrated with zeal and enthusiasm. 5th September announces the birthday of the great teacher and scholar , the second president of India Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was a phenomenal teacher , philosopher, writer,orator,statesman,administrator and above all, a great man. As a mark of respect to this phenomenal teacher, his birthday came to be observed as Teacher’s Day in the country.
In India a teacher is known as ‘Guru’ as ‘Sir’ or ‘Madam’ in today’s age. The role and position of a teacher is so great and highly important that we have even a sanskrit shlok to prove it, it goes” Guru Brahma, guru vishnu, guru devo maheswaraha, guru shakshat parabrahma tatmaishree guruwe namaha.” This shows that the teacher is given the important of god in the eyes of Hindu culture. We even have the famous Kabir quoting “ guru govind dau kahde kake lagu pai, balihari guru aap ne Govind diyo batai” meaning that if god and my teacher both were standing together, who should be respected first, Kabir continues saying that he show respect to his teacher as he was the one who showed him the path which leads to god. Muslims have their profit saying,’that to gain education is a must for every muslim man and woman”. All these show us the importance of education and teachers are specially created just for the purpose of imparting knowledge and creating a better universe.
Everyone parent looks upon the support of a teacher for the purpose of educating their child. it is therefore a great responsibility on the part of the teacher and they should do justice to this honourable position. Hiting the children and scolding them in front of their friends should be avoided. New and improved methods of teaching should be adopted by them for the purpose of seeing better results in their students.
The student in turn should treat their teachers with respect. Teachers day is a means of showing your love and affection for your teacher. Many students present their tecaher’s with gifts and cards. Some students write poems and messages for teachers. It is a day which is looked forward with great enthusiasm on the part of both the student and teacher
Come lets on this beautiful day remember those who made a difference to our lives. Lets tell them that they matter to us.
Come let’s wish our teacher a Happy Teachers Day!!
