The applause a student receives is but a teacher’s pride. The selfless teacher holds an important place in Indian culture. ‘Guru’ is often seen as more important than ‘God’.
In India, Dr.S.Radhakrishnan’s birthday, September 5th, is celebrated as teachers’ day. He had been one of the major reasons for why Indian philosophy opened up to the rest of the world. Although the second President of India, he is remembered more for his academic prowess.
Here are a few ways by which you can make your teacher’s day special on Teachers’ Day!
- Write them honest letters of appreciation. They would love to know about how they might have helped you. This will benefit them in their approach to other students.
