India Celebrates Teachers’ Day

A teacher is a person  who has extensive knowledge, imparts that knowledge skillfully and confidently to her/his students so that they can imbibe that knowledge and apply the same in alignment with human values for growth, development, and all round happiness. In addition, a teacher is a friend, mentor, counselor, guide, and philosopher to her/his students.  Besides, a teacher is a role model, driven by discipline, ethics and values.  (S)he is a person with integrity, character, and foresight and leads  students by her/his personal example. Always in pursuit of knowledge, (s)he is a lifelong learner.  

We, in India, celebrate birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan as Teachers’ Day on the 5th of September. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (September 5, 1888 – April 17, 1975) was the first Vice President of India (1952-1962) and the second President of India (1962-1967). He was awarded Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in India, in 1954.

On this day, I offer my reverence and gratitude to my Gurus, teachers, and all those who made a difference in my life.

“A life of joy and happiness is possible only on the basis of knowledge and science,” with these words of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, I sign off this blog-post wishing you all a happy teachers’ day.

  1. Happy Teacher’s day sir …..thank you for your guidance & inspirations which help me a lot in becoming a good human being…:-)

  2. Thank you so much sir, for existing. You have, single-handedly invoked more inspiration in students in the college, that perhaps everyone else combined. It was sheer joy, being around you- academically and otherwise.

    Have joined a ‘raspberry-pi’ hacking group in Bangalore. The microprocessors you taught, keep me on the edge even among people with industrial experience.
