Teachers' Day 2022: History And Significance

Indians celebrate the traditional teachers' day on Guru Purnima Day. This day is celebrated to honour teachers or teacher figures in our lives such as father, mother,and finally God. A teacher is a kingmaker. They are the only ones whose career is devoted to advance the career of somebody else who may or may not remember them for their services. Behind every person, is an unsung hero whose career took off indirectly due to the efforts of a selfless mentor. We do have mentors for all aspects of our lives.

Our parents are our first teachers who teach us how to take our first few tottering steps. They teach us how to express our pain and pleasure. They also bring us up at the moral and cultural level whereas schoolteachers are our parents at school who share a fair part of our intellectual upbringing with our parents.

They are our unacknowledged godfathers, in academics. Teachers start their career with the student's ultimate good in their hearts and retire with the same goal in their minds. Our peers teach us how to coexist with others, be perfect social animals, and develop a worldview. Our mentors at the workplace also deserve the status of a teacher. They shape our thoughts, and personalities to a large extent and help us utilize our skills to the full potential.
