Teachers are everyday heroes who were called on a mission to help the world learn. It requires an enormous amount of inner strength, self-sacrifice and patient listening more than just talking in the class. Teachers dedicate their life to nurturing many lives while handling the hearts and minds of children. As we belong to such a noble profession, we should strive to make this mission one of the most appreciated, respected and supported.
Ours is a culture that places teachers on a pedestal and elevates them to the status of God… which child in India wouldn’t know the concept of “Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu Guru Devo Maheswara, Guru sakshat Parabrahma Tasmaisri Gurave namaha”? Guru or the teacher comes just after the parents and even before the God. That’s the stature that India gives to teachers. Can anyone ever forget legendary teachers like Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (whose birthday is celebrated in the country as the Teachers’ Day) and Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam?
It is amazing to note the kind of respect, admiration and selfless love that teachers receive from their students. On this special day, let’s take some time to appreciate the great work done by teachers to shape up the personality and the future of the students under their care. I spoke to a few students to understand what they think about teachers and the Teachers’ Day, which also shows us the positive impact that teachers have on the young minds.
