From the time immemorial, gurus or teachers have been given a special and reverential status in Indian society. In our ancient scriptures, gurus have been even given a higher status than the god. After all, teachers form an indispensable part of our lives and it’s difficult to imagine our lives without teachers. And to recognize the importance of teachers in our lives, India celebrates 5th September as Teacher’s Day on the birth anniversary of our first vice-president and second president Dr. Sarvapali Radhakrishnan.
Undoubtedly, our teachers possess the power to shape the individual’s mind, and thereby they immensely contribute to the nation-building. They are the foundation of any individual and the nation. On this auspicious occasion, President Ram Nath Kovind tweeted “Good buildings, expensive equipment or facilities do not make a good school but teachers have a crucial role in building a good school. They are the ones who develop a foundation of knowledge and character building in our students, President Ramnath Kovind said during the virtual address while conferring awards to teachers”.
