This article sneak peeks into the celebrations of Teacher’s day in India.

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” – Henry Brooks Adams

The birthdate, [5 September 1888], of the second President of India, academic philosopher Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. It is considered a “celebration” day, where teachers and students report to school as usual but the usual activities and classes are replaced by activities of celebration, thanks and remembrance. At some schools on this day, the responsibility of teaching is taken up by the senior students to show appreciation for their teachers.

Another day set aside for commemorating teachers in India and Nepal is Guru Purnima, also called ‘Ashad sukla purnima’. It typically falls in mid-July.

“As long as teachers give tests, there will always be prayer in schools.”

All that I have achieved in my life is because of my teachers. Some of them were formally designated as my teachers — in school, college, and university. Others, such as my parents and siblings and friends and acquaintances, were my teachers nonetheless.

“To be good is noble, but to teach others how to be good is nobler—and less trouble.” — Mark Twain

Going To School :
Early one morning, a mother went in to wake up her son. “Wake up, son. It’s time to go to school!”
“But why, Mom? I don’t want to go.”
“Give me two reasons why you don’t want to go.”
“Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too!”
“Oh, that’s no reason not to go to school. Come on now and get ready.”
“Give me two reasons why I should go to school.”
“Well, for one, you’re 52 years old. And for another, you’re the Principal!”

“If you think your teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss. He doesn’t have tenure.” — Bill Gates
