Heartfelt gratitude to all the teachers in my Life for the teachings and knowledge that I have today !!

Technology will keep evolving but nothing can replace the power of a teacher’s inspirational words…

Good Teachers are the reason why Ordinary Students dream to do Extra-ordinary things..

There is no way to recompense our teacher’s contribution but we can show our gratitude by thanksgiving them. Sometimes our parents also want to thanks teachers cause a good teacher is everything a parent can never be…

Thank you teachers for guiding us, inspiring us with all the academic and life lessons, making us what we are today.

Teachers-Day-38

Teachers’ Day is a special day for the appreciation of teachers, and may include celebrations to honor them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general.

The idea of celebrating Teachers’ Day took root in many countries during the 19th century; in most cases, they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education (for example, Argentina has commemorated Domingo Faustino Sarmiento’s death on 11 September) since 1915. While India traditionally celebrates Guru Purnima. The birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (5 September) is also celebrated as Teacher’s Day in India since 1962. This is the primary reason why countries celebrate this day on different dates, unlike many other International Days…

Guru Purnima is an Indian and Nepalese festival dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers. This festival is traditionally celebrated by Hindus, Jains and Buddhists, to pay their respects to their teachers and express their gratitude. The festival is celebrated on the full moon day (Purnima) in the Hindu month of Ashadha (June–July) as it is known in the Hindu calendar of India and Nepal. This day marks the first peak of the lunar cycle after the peak of the solar cycle. The celebration is marked by ritualistic respect to the Guru, Guru Puja.

The Guru Principle is said to be a thousand times more active on the day of Guru purnima than on any other day. The word Guru is derived from two words, gu and ru. The Sanskrit root gu means darkness or ignorance, and ru denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore, a Guru is one who removes the darkness of our ignorance. Gurus are believed by many to be the most necessary part of life. On this day, disciples offer pooja (worship) or pay respect to their Guru (spiritual guide). In addition to having religious importance, this festival has great importance for Indian academics and scholars. Indian academics celebrate this day by thanking their teachers as well as remembering past teachers and scholars.

The birth date of the second President of India, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, 5 September 1888, has been celebrated as Teacher’s Day since 1962. On this day, teachers and students report to school as usual but the usual activities and classes are replaced by activities of celebration, thanks and remembrance. In some schools, senior students take the responsibility of teaching in order to show their appreciation for the teachers.
