In India celebrate teacher’s day on 5th Sept. every year throughout the country, to mark the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvapalli RadhaKrishnan, the  second president of India, a profound philosopher, statesman and educationalist of exceptional stature. In fact, Teachers day commemorates the memory of Dr. Radhakrishnan and his notable contributions to the cause of education. This day also recall and acknowledge theimmense contributions of countless teachers of our nation.

Teacher is an English word and the Sanskrit word for teacher is GURU, which comes from GU and RU. The GU indicates the darkness and RU indicates  which removes the darkness. Therefore, a teacher’s role is  a torch bearer and pivot of any educational system of younger students. On him rests the failure or the success of the system. If the teachers are well educated and if they are intellectually alive  and take keen interest in their responsibility, then only the success is   ensured. Teaching, in fact, is not a job, it is an attitude. Teacher is a source of information, a guide, a mentor, a motivator, all at the same time.
