Acharya Devo Bhava

5th September, reminds me of senior students taking up classes in our school letting our teachers relax for the day as part of the teacher's day celebrations. The birthday of the great philosopher, educator of India, Dr.S.Radhakrishnan is celebrated as teacher's day across India. Dr.S.Radhakrishnan who had great love for the teaching profession, believed that the right kind of education only would solve many problems of the society and country. He wanted to bring in a change in the educational system to improve the relation between the teachers and their pupil. He truly was instrumental in reforming the educational system of India at that time.
I would say, anybody who inspires and encourages us to learn and move forward towards our goal is a teacher. Learning is a continuous process and I say it is never ending. And teacher is the one, who helps us discover the joy of learning. Also, as I mentioned in one of my previous posts(Master Stroke) mother is the first teacher and source of learning to all of us. Let us all take some time on this special day and thank all those who inspired us by being with us in times thick and thin. It feels great when I think of those selfless teachers who have contributed to the society in many ways, my heartfelt gratitude to all of them.
                  Teachers should be the best minds of the country and should not just instruct, but also have to gain the affection of their students and thereby earn respect. Few selfish individuals, have commercialized the education system to an extent, that if not reformed at the earliest would pose a great threat to the nation. The number of students now willing to take up teaching as profession has gradually fallen. Let us try and change this by encouraging the young minds willing to take up teaching as profession and not let any commercial elements take over the art of teaching. Teachers are the greatest source of inspiration to their students and have the power to transform them into responsible individuals, contributing to the growth of the nation. Lets respect our teachers/mentors and thank them all for their never ending selfless support. Let the legacy of the great Indian teachers continue. Happy Teachers' Day!
