A Tribute To The Teacher----Teacher's Day

गुरु  गोविन्द दोनों खड़े ; काके  लागू पाये,
बलिहारी गुरु आपकी ; गोविन्द दियो बताये।
-----संत कबीर

Saint Kabir glorifies the Guru or the teacher by this verse. Simple meaning is that if the teacher and the God, both are standing in front of me, whom should I pay my respect first, by touching their feet.
Then he answers that it has to be the Guru or the teacher, because without the Guru, how would I have recognized the God.

 Teachers play a vital role, in building the personality of boys and girls, thereby making a valuable contribution to the society at large.
  All over the world teacher's are paid respect, by celebrating Teacher's day.
 In India, it is celebrated on 5th of September, the birthday of Dr. S. Radhakrishnan--an academician, a philosopher, former President of India and above all a teacher.
A teacher is a person, who not only  teaches a subject, but one who is a friend, a guide--the one who cares like parents.
There must be a strong bond between the teacher and his student.
 A good teacher never looses his patience and makes all efforts to clarify all doubts of his students.
 A true teacher motivates the child, not only in his academics, but prepares him to face the challenges of life.
 The teacher identifies  the positive points of the child and helps in nurturing them.
Having the quality of a good teacher and a good student is not so easy.
But, India is a country, where we have a very strong, Guru-Shishya Parampara. 

So do not forget to say a big 'Thank you' to your teachers, on Teacher's day and always!
