“A teacher plants the seeds of knowledge, sprinkles them with love,
and patiently nurtures their growth, to produce tomorrows’dreams”
Teachers have a major role in actualizing the dream of ‘New India’ that is directed by cutting edge research and innovations. The trend of celebrating Teachers’ Day in India started in 1962, the year in which Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan began to serve people as the president of India. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was the second president of independent India.
After the post of presidency, he started motivating people towards the importance of education. Radhakrishnan devoted his free time in teaching the small village children at no charges. Children used to enjoy his teaching and that created the zeal and encouragement towards the education in the mind of villagers.
In respect of his servings to the society, his students suggested celebrating his birth date (5th September) as ‘Radhakrishnan Day’ or Teachers’ Day. Thereafter, on every 5th September whole India celebrates Teachers Day with full zeal and enthusiasm in order to pay tribute to Radhakrishnan on his birth date. He was a great man and an achiever too. Despite all his achievements, he chose to remain a teacher in order to impart knowledge to all over the country.
Dr.Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a staunch believer of education, a scholar, a diplomat and above all a great teacher.
Every individual is largely a replica of their teachers and they are the one who knows the way, shows the way, goes the way and leads other through the way. Teachers are the flash of every darkness. Teachers are the makeover of every dull face. They are the one who shapes the future of their students by refining them using various tools such as knowledge, motivation, and inspiration. Teachers are being positioned even superior to God. It is believed that a teacher (Guru) is the only guide who can show the right path to reach the God. The Teachers’ day is basically celebrated to thanks our teachers for all that they do to shape us.
The students of IMS Ghaziabad, University Courses Campus, organize Teachers’ Day program every year with full zeal and enthusiasm in order to honor the great man Dr. Radhakrishnan and to show love and respect towards their teachers. Students of all the four departments (BBA, BCA, BSC, and BJMC) seemed to be very excited about their every little contribution they can make in this celebration. They put their best efforts in hosting the celebration as the preparations started a week before the Teachers’ day. . Various programs such as dance performances, singing, skit were prepared by the students for their enjoyment. Few games were also arranged for the teachers to participate which added cherishing moments to the celebration. Teachers really enjoyed playing games and other cultural activities. Teachers enjoyed seeing their replicants acting through a role play. The auditorium was full of applauses. Students even titled each one their teachers through synonymous out of their best. Last but not the least, a small vote of thanks by director which really overwhelmed the heart of every student present there.
Again every celebration is incomplete without the cake cutting ceremony. Students arranged cake, snacks, and gift for the teachers as the token of remembrance of the day. Students were enjoying taking selfie with teachers. The celebration ended with loads of wishes and blessings.
On this auspicious day, we thank our teachers for all the contribution made by them in order to lighten up the future of their students and to commemorate the importance of teachers in each one of our lives.
