“Teachers should be the best minds in the country”.
In India 5th September is celebrated as Teachers’ day. 5th September is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the president of India in 1962, some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate 5th September, his “birthday”. In reply, Dr, Radhakrishnan said, “instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers’ day”. The request showed Dr.Radhakrishnan’s love for the teaching profession. From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers’ Day in India.
Teachers mold the lives that they influence. Lessons learned from teachers remain with their students throughout life. Teachers as Masters they are popularly known as in parts of the world. Masters / Teachers molding not only the careers but curving the society towards a better tomorrow.
Teachers acts as a milestone in shaping generations. The primary goal of Teaching Profession is to guide children, youth, and adults in the pursuit of knowledge and skills, to prepare them in ways of democracy, and to help them to become happy, useful, self supporting citizens. The ultimate strength of individuals lies in the social responsibility, economic
competence and moral strength of the individuals.
Talking of Indian ethics in context with role the of teachers in our evolution process. Ancient Indians knew that the power of learning starts right from the womb. Latest study also proves that a child starts picking up from the lifestyle, behavior patterns, aptitude and attitudes reactions and the surrounding environment among others when he is not even born in his mothers womb example of Abhimanyu son of Arjuna in epic Mahabaratta.
Socrates was an example of a good teacher. He considered himself a learner as well as a teacher. For Socrates, love and friendship were the proper contexts for the pursuit of wisdom and goodness. Socrates saw himself only as a catalyst. He felt it was not his teaching, but actually the power of the Divine which enabled the person he was talking with to improve himself.
There are various ways means and techniques available to get started first and foremost is being collective and united we shall stand for prosperity, peace and progress as it is quoted “charity begins at home” so taking things further we should invest some part of lives and divert all our positive energy zest and enthusiasm towards a better tomorrow and as being a responsible citizens of the society, understand the minor yet critical changes as and when required in subtlety to fight with the evils of negatives which keep attacking us all the time within. We need to conquer all negatives that we are facing today for a better tomorrow and dream of our progress both vertical and horizontal.
I am confident all our efforts will prove to be a milestone in creating better future generation.
