Teachers’ Day in India – An Event to Strengthen Student Teacher Relationship
Published By archit on 2012-08-27 75 Views

Teachers’ Day in India is celebrated on 5th September, 2012. Students all across the nation try to do things to make their teachers happy on this particular day known as Teachers’ day. Teachers’ Day is celebrated in the memory of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, the second President of India. It is said Dr. Sarvapalli himself was a great teacher.

Teachers’ Day is celebrated in schools, colleges and at any places where the students can show respect for their teacher. These days teachers’ day celebrations can be found even in the coaching classes as there are lot more students than there used to be earlier. After all, teachers are/have been the strength of this developing nation.

 India has had great teacher student relationships despite the fact that there used to be no Teachers’ Day in India before Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday was accepted as Teachers’ Day in India. Based on the Indian calendar i.e. Tithi, Vaar etc. there is a Tithi known as Guru Poornima (Purnima) when student (shishya) visits his Guru (Teacher) every year as a mark of respect.

Even before the Teachers’ Day there used to be great student teacher relationships for example Shivaji and Guru Ramdas, Swami Vivekananda and Ramkrishna Paramhansa, Swami Yogananda and Swami Yukteshwara.

In the words of Kabir, the great Indian saint, “Guru Gobind Dou Khade, Kake Lago Paye, Balihari Guru Apne, Gobind Diyo Dikhaye” (Teacher and God are both standing before me, whom should I put first, it was the teacher who told me about the God).

Long before life had been divided into Ashrams when the child had to stay at the teacher’s place to learn and gain knowledge till the age of 25. This was known as Brahmacharya Ashram. The students would be left under the custody of the Guru (Teacher) and the students devoted everything to make their teacher happy.

A student should not only respect the teacher but also be resilient enough not to disrespect by replying bluntly or abusing when the teacher is not there. Teachers dedicate their lives for the well being of children so respect them from the bottom of the heart and they will bless you. Wish you Happy Teachers’ Day.
