Who are Teachers?
Teachers are an indispensable part of our lives. They not only help us build up careers but also help us become good citizens of the country. The future of any nation is based on teachers because they teach students all the things that will happen later on in life. They teach students how to analyze situations so that they can do what is best for them later on in life. They help us know about what we don’t know. They are like the candles that burn themselves to illuminate others’ life in the world when it is dark because of ignorance. Our teachers help us get smarter, be better at things, and choose the right path to success.
But, despite being so important to students and in building a nation, teachers are often not thanked. Their job remains thankless for years until one succeeds and realise how important one’s teachers role is. So, as a student it is our duty to thank them at least once a year. Teachers’ Day gives us an opportunity to do so. In addition to thanking your own teachers and mentors, 5th September is also the day when we can look back on how Dr. Radhakrishnan’s life changed. He hailed from a small city yet he became an esteemed politician and visionary educationist with the help from education.
