We children of all schools across die length and breads of India celebrate Teacher’s Day on Sept. 5 every year in order to honour the birth of Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, a great scholar, philosophy and the second President of Independence India from 1962 to 1967.
Dr. Radhakrishnan was in teaching profession before coming into politics. He was die professor in the University of Madras (Chennai) and Mysore. Utter he became die chairman of UGC and promoted university education in India. Hence his birthday on Sept. 5, (1888) is celebrated as the Teacher’s day. Actually what do we do on this day?
On this day we chiefly concentrate on how to make every teacher of ours feel happy and light- hearted. We greet the teacher. We offer flowers and bouquet as a token of love and respect. One of us gives a speech on the dais after die morning prayers. This speech highlights die noble profession of teaching.
It is an honest praise and no flattery! It is the teachers, who gives us not only basic education, but also imparts all that a growing young mind ought to learn so that they will become the better citizen of tomorrow and rule his country effectively. We put every effort make our teachers very happy.
We enact a drama, compose a poem or write an essay; all in praise of the teachers. Much has been said about the noble profession of teaching. However, it is worth mentioning that in govt, schools the teaching is not as effective as in private schools. It is a bitter fact in prevalent!
In some schools, the teachers still resort to corporal punishments. This is no vague remark. Fake die case of Shanno during April, 2009; one can see such news keep appearing in the newspapers. What is the solution to this?
One may have one’s own worries and problems. Whatever it is, the moment a teacher enters the school, he/she should wipe oil all that thoughts from the mind and concentrate only on the work. A teacher should treat all children equally.
Similarly, the students too must be cooperative to the teachers, no matter how influential his parents are. But the percentage of teachers who resort to corporal punishment is very low. Majority are kind hearted. Hence, we wish ‘Xing Live Our Noble Teachers. ‘
