A guide, a guru, a teacher, a mentor, an educator call them by any name they mean the same.
In India, teacher’s day is celebrated on 5 September every year to commemorate the birth of Dr. S. Radhakrishnan.
There is no denying in the fact that the teacher’s have played a very important role in moulding our personality and shaping us in who we are today. A child is like wet clay, waiting to be sculpted into a beautiful piece of art. The teachers carry a huge responsibility of shaping the young minds!
On Teacher’s day, I look back in gratitude to all the people who have influenced me to be the person who I am today. Parents, siblings, teachers, friends, husband, children, strangers, experiences and above all our greatest teacher “Life”!
ignites the young mind
nurtures the sprouts to take strong roots
clears the weeds of ignorance
helps the bud blossom into a flower!
Is a beacon of light guiding
like a candle who burns selflessly
to light a thousand new ones
enlightening the eager minds!
encourages her pupil
to flap their wings and soar high
instils confidence in them to
tread on uncharted paths!
Salutations to all the teachers who
with their words of wisdom
can influence and impact
a student, beyond eternity!
