Today, 5th September is a special day for the teacher. We convey our regards to our teachers. Generally students arrange this Teacher’s Day celebration every year. And really it’s a grand festival in the educational institution. For a long long time I have been enjoying this lovely ceremony in my college. It’s about three and half decades. But last two years it has been continued through online. Though today is Sunday, despite students have been arranged and previously told us to join in Google meet.
They meteculously started and finished this program. We enjoyed it very much. They participated in music, dance, recitation and speech and very perfectly they performed it. In fact, we have learned from them. Sometimes I think I have a long way to learn many things in this knowledgeable world from anywhere, from anybody, may it be a daily labour, or an unknown person. Sometimes I used to learn from daughter. She is expert in digital world. But I am a novice. New generation have a different looks about the life and about the world. So we learn from my students and others people. Might be they’re also our teacher. Are they really so ?
In fact, knowledge is within us. Teacher only can Ignite this. He is the torch bearer. His main duty is to remove the ignorance and to open the door of the heart. Aggano timirandhosya Jnanjono Shalakaya Chokhsur urmilitang Jeno tosmai Shree gurabe namoh.
Guru or Teacher is our God. He always stand by us in every situation of our lives. They inspire us, help us to go forward and achieve any goal. Vidyasagar, Rabindranath, Swami Vivekananda, Dr. Sarbepalli Radhakrisnan, Rishi Aurobindo – they’re all our great teacher.
