 Point of View
Teacher's Day  
Teacher’s day in India is held on September 5 on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, India’s second president and an extremely respected scholar and teacher of philosophy. It is the day that Indians honour the teachers for their immense contribution to the country and the community. When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the president of India in 1962, he was approached by some of his students and friends and requested him to celebrate 5th September his “Birthday”. In replay, Dr. Radhakrishnan said “Instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as “Teacher’s day”. The request showed Dr. Radhakrishnan’s love for the teaching profession.

Teachers mold the lives that they influence because the lessons learned from teachers remain with their students throughout life. We should always respect our Teachers. Teachers need encouragement and support from the community to feel that their devotion to student is appreciated.

Role of teachers in modern world
Day by day generation is changing. Due to this change, environment and surroundings has also changed . There was a time when Teachers were respected and more honorable than God but now Teachers are just for the name sake. Technology has empowered the humans and students are following technology. Students now prefer digital classrooms compared to Book of Knowledge ‘Teachers’. Before students used to respect their teachers but now students just ignore their teachers. Actually this is because of the changing in generation. But hats off to our Teachers who know very well that it will not affect their self respect and they try their best and many of them have proved to be the role models of their students. Students till today respect their teachers who are efficient and update themselves with the changing time. Generally trouble comes for those teachers who are inexperienced and still stick to their old theory. Teachers should try to be good, change with the time and update themselves, then really the students will respect them.

God’s second face is our teacher
No one can ever compete their feature.
Makes us a real human,
Shows terms like respect and discipline
A life without guidance of teacher,
Is like a pilot flying a wooden plane
School is a temple,
Books are incense sticks
Knowledge is the Prasad
Which we interestingly lick
If there are no teachers,
No knowledge will be there
We should respect teacher
And live life without fear.
