FOR - RACHANA TEACHERS AND THEIR TEACHINGS

Whenever I think of character 'Teacher' , an image which comes to my mind is that of a person very simple, easily accessible and freely approachable but still leaving a certain grace and reserve in his/her walks or talks .A person with ever ready wit and keen sense of humor but with due care to not let it slip into the mere  funny 'hurt' statement .A person who is very knowledgeable but never pendatory . A person who could be trusted but never to be taken for granted , and most of all a very much students representative but without looking common , somehow carrying an inscrutable halo of some strange mystique.

In fact , these were some of the qualities of a timeless teacher ,the first vice-president and former president of India - Dr. Sarvpilli Radhakrishnan . He was the most respected, educated and the person who provided solace to the country in time of crisis.When some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, he said, "instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege, if September 5th is observed as Teacher's day". From then onwards, the 5th of September has been observed as Teachers Day, in India.

For our part of bargain , we should always try to deliver our best in honesty,sincerity and discipline , we must always understand that it takes a deal of endeavor and to deliver lectures and manage a class of 45 students which our teachers accomplish. Ask all the people who are crowned with success and they will always tell you that behind them their is a hand of a great teacher.A person who has guided them , given them their instincts which they have trusted blind-folded all their life.

On a more personal note I would like to thank all the teachers of Rachana School for giving me such an exposure to education and wish them a VERY HAPPY TEACHERS DAY
