Teacher's day

 "An awesome teacher is hard to find, difficult to part with, and impossible to forget."

Every year we celebrate the 5th of September as teacher's day. A day to witness, a day to celebrate, and a day to be proud of. In India, we celebrate Teachers' Day annually on September 5 to mark the birthday of the country's former President, scholar, philosopher, and Bharat Ratna awardee, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on this day in 1888.

According to Wikipedia Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was an Indian philosopher and politician who served as the 2nd President of India from 1962 to 1967 and 1st Vice President of India from 1952 to 1962. He was also the 2nd Ambassador of India to the Soviet Union from 1949 to 1952 and the 4th Vice-Chancellor of Banaras Hindu University from 1939 to 1948. He was usually called by the top universities in the world such as Harvard for his Guest lectures. He used to treat the world as students. One fine day his students, and friends asked him to celebrate his birthday, then Dr.Radha Krishnayya said that " it would be a great pleasure for me if you all celebrate my birthday but, I want you all to show most gratitude to your teacher on my birthday." From then we celebrate the 5th of September as teacher's day.

Dr.Radha Krishnayya believed that " true teachers are those who help us think for ourselves."

You would have many teachers in your life, let him be a mathematics professor or a science teacher. You would have a favorite teacher. From many opinions, the student says that"the mother is the first teacher, who teaches us the ethics, values, and how to live in this world." We have heard a saying that the teachers are our second mothers, as the mother gives life, a teacher teaches us how to live that life, live your life to the best of your ability." I agree with that statement but, I would add that "let the teacher be our second mother but the mother is our first teacher." In a world of I, she counts you. In the situation of poverty, she teaches you to save. There is the fact that without teachers there would be no professions. This is a bitter fact but, a fact. The learning from the teacher influences beyond the classroom, well in the world.

Teaching is a profession that teaches another profession. There are some beautiful words by dr.APJ Abdul Kalam, said that " if a country wants to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds then three members can make a difference, they are the father, the mother and the teacher" there is a famous question that if you are asked to choose between God and a teacher then who will you choose? Some may say that I'll choose God. But no, you end up making a mistake there. The teacher teaches you and shows you the path to reach God. But if you get an easy way to go to God then you end up enjoying your life.

In the end, I would like to show small gratitude by expressing my feelings in words, even though it's never enough. Very few teachers can teach this young generation and my teachers did that and I am proud to be their student.
