Happy Teachers Day, 5th September, 2010

5th September is celebrated as Teachers day in India. It is the birthday of second president of India, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who wanted his birthday to be celebrated as Teachers day. Today we remember and honour all our teachers who were there for us in all the phases of our life. Not only the teachers who taught us in school but each one who taught us atleast something, like our mother taught us to eat and so on . In every phase we needed a teacher to teach us way ahead. They are the ones who deserve all due respect and affection today and everyday that they are there for us. They may get strict at times, but that is for their students’ betterment.

All over india celebrations take place where students pay regards to their teachers, sing them poems, give them hand made cards or even performing for them. Students do their best to make it special for the special teachers in their lives.
Though, it’s a Sunday this year, but the celebrations for the teachers took place a day before at many places. Where the general classes were replaced by performing activities for the teachers by the students to pay the teachers regards and tell them how important they are in their lives. As a Chinese quotation says, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. “
Our teachers have taught us a lot. Things in the books and out of the books. Helped us top the exams or help us solve the smallest of problems. Given us support in our extra-curricular activities or encouraged us with their personal touch. They have done a lot which may not be even put in words. But lucky are we that we had such teachers in our lives. Thank you to all the teachers. God bless our teachers.
