The Importance of Teacher in One’s life!

Teachers! The people who shaped our life. The one who nurtured us when we are in our growing phases. The day today is celebrated in India as Teacher’s Day. And I am happy to bring this article to you.

I am Lakshay R Goyal and welcome to Humanitarian. Today, we will talk about “The Importance of Teacher in One’s life!

So, here we are today remembering all our old school stories. How we used to talk in back benches, how we had fun and so many things. But, an important element in those happiness was of course our Teachers.
So, let’s begin our felicitations and owe respect to them.

Who are our Teachers?

Teacher is one who teaches, not just boring lectures, but each and every thing. A teacher is always there for you. Talking about the very first teachers of Life, they are obviously our parents.

Unconditional Motherly Love and Paternal Care can’t be replaced by anything else. Our parents who have nurtured us and helped us in growing, are always looking for our care.

Though you have grown mature, still you feel like consulting them on decisions. It is because they are teachers. They are at a better level than you are. They know how to tackle problems. I can write a whole article with endless words on this, but I will still be hungry for more.

Coming towards the teachers who really helped us know the world, School Teachers. Our parents helped us in growth, but a teacher will help in development.

Be it primary school teacher or high school one, they help us in developing our skills. The first day of school feels like a strange place to visit, but gradually your classroom becomes your best friend. The moment you have farewell, you cry.

This is all because of the Teachers that have showered love and care for you. A Parent can take care of his child, but Teachers will take care of Dozens of Childs. That’s how a teacher is.

Why are Teachers important?

Think like you are visiting a monument, you will for sure hire a guide, won’t you? Indeed you will, and this is because you don’t want to miss an adventurous holiday without getting the knowledge of it.

Then, think of the greatest adventure- living in this World. Teachers guide us for this adventure. They shape us so that we don’t fall. They assure us of our happiness. Basically, they will do all that is needed to enjoy the greatest adventure of life.

Just citing the importance of teachers will project them like a thing. But, Teachers are not a thing, they are rare gems that are needed. They don’t just help us in our development, they teach us coordination with the world. They are like a sculptor working on us to make us perfect.

Can a Teacher be just a man/woman?

Well, even a small pencil can teach you a lesson. If you are receptive to knowledge and lessons, anything will teach you.

Indeed for us, most of our teachers are humans, either our parents, school faculties or friends, we all have them. And what is astonishing is everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a student. This relationship is so strong that it has to exist forever.

But don’t just feel like a Teacher is only human. Sometimes a growing grass or rising sun can teach us.

Growing grass teaches us to grow in fresh air, no matter how the soil is. How much the dangers of uprooting are, you have to grow. You have to keep your promise. You have to make every flower bloom.

But why all of sudden we are talking about Teachers. Well! It is because of Teacher’s day that is celebrated on 5th September every year in India. So, let’s start the History of it.

History of Teacher’s Day

  1. On September 5, Teachers Day is celebrated every year to signify the birth anniversary of Dr S. Radhakrishnan.
  2. He was the first Vice President of India (1952-1962) and also the second President of India (1962-1967).
  3. He was a teacher and philosopher as well.
  4. Despite all his accomplishments, he remained a teacher throughout his life.
  5. So, let’s know about the Legendary Teacher who will keep inspiring everyone’s life forever.

About Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan-

  1. He was born in a Brahmin family in Andhra Pradesh on September 5, 1888. He was a wonderful student and also an incredible teacher who dedicated his life to education.
  2. In his later period, he was a vice chancellor of Andhra & Banaras Hindu University.
  3. When Dr Radhakrishan took office as the President of India in 1962, his students asked his permission to celebrate his birthday as a special day.
  4. He instead made a request to observe September 5 as Teachers’ Day in order to recognise the contribution of teachers to the society.
  5. His words were, “Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teacher’s Day.
  6. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna posthumously, the nation’s highest civilian honour.

Teachers are those who help us think for ourselves, so they should be the best minds in the nation.

Dr. S. Radhakrishnan

His words and speeches have inspired a lot of people and will keep doing so forever.

Bottom Line:

Teacher’s day, though celebrated each year on 5th September, needs to be celebrated each and every day not by decorating flowers or balloons, but by being a better student. A teacher wants a student and they are incomplete without each other.

So, let’s give us a salute of honour and respect to the teachers who have inspired us till today and will keep inspiring us. Kindly comment for any suggestions and demands.

With this, I want to end this article on a happy note and wish all the readers a thank you.
