Some Thoughts on Teachers Day

by arZan on September 4, 2007

September 5th is celebrated as Teachers Day all over India. On this day we recognise all the teachers in our lives who have made a difference to us.

Teachers hold an esteemed position in the Indian social ladder and rightly so. Right from mythological times teachers have been revered as equals to parents or even higher.

Here is something I wrote last year on Teachers Day

If you ever have come across one teacher in all your student life, who has changed your life and your way of thinking for the better, you have been blessed.

Thankfully I have had several such opportunities. Right from pre-primary school right upto architecture college, and then graduate school, I have benifited from teachers who have gone beyond their call of duty, to mould me and my fellow students into better human beings, first and foremost, and then to instill in us a sense of purpose for life, that at a young age seems all too ambiguous.

These teachers went above the regular lectures, exams, viva’s and juries, and made me realize that education is something much more than what is contained in the printed text book.

I consider education to be one of the nobler professions, akin to medicine. Teachers who spend their lives teaching kids, do more than just teach. They help mould the future of our communities, cities and countries.

So, if like me you have been touched by a teacher who changed your life for the better, now is the time to write an email, pick up the telephone or pen some thoughts and let them know what they meant to you.

And to my dear teachers, I wish you a very Happy Teachers Day.
