The Teacher's Day on September 5

The Teacher's Day on September 5

Teachers who educate children deserve more honor than parents who merely gave them birth; for bare life is furnished by the one, the other ensures a good life.

And so is rightly accorded a unique position of pride for teachers in our Vedas and Indian heritage "Acharya Devo Bhava". We observe September 5 as the Teachers Day in India. This also coincides with the birth anniversary of our former president of India, Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan.

It is indeed a festival of great glory to one and all. Without our teachers in our schools and colleges, we are no more. Without Millie Amon or Meena Suresh at Balalok, there could have been this Deepak or this weblog that you are reading and provides you a greater degree of reading pleasures and serves as sumptous information repository.

Let us try to meet our teachers tomorrow (be it school and/or college) and take thier blessings. Let us pray Lord Almighty for all welfare and prosperity of our teachers to further bless us and our next generation and thus bring in a more prosperous and developed country and a more peaceful India and the world.
