    India is a land of many traditions. In an Indian family, when a child is born, on the eleventh day NAMAKARNAM is performed i.e., naming ceremony. After few months ANNAPARSHANAM - feeding the child with solid food, then after few years on the Navarathri festival or Gurupurnima or on any auspicious day the child is gifted with AKSHARABHYASAM, making the child to write or introducing him to the world of education, familiarizing with the alphabets of his mother tongue.

    From there the role of the teacher commences in the life of a child. Initially mother becomes the first guru, introducing his father, family, friends & relatives. “Naasthi maathru samo guruh”

    The second guru being the father- the head of the family takes him to a guru &seeks his help to up bring his child and brighten his future with the best Education, because the education is the Teacher of teachers.

    “Vidhyaa Guroonaam Guruh.”

    GURUKULA system was the ancient form of education prevailed in India. Oral transmission is the only medium to impart Vedic texts and life lessons to lead a best life. Guru Sishya Parampara is best found in the epics like Ramayana & Mahabharata. Drona is the first & the best guru, because of which the National awards for best coach is titled as DRONACHARYA AWARD. Dronacharya for Arjuna, Valmiki for Lava & Kusa, Shukar for Parikshith & others, Vasista &Vyasa for Pandavas & Kauravas, Dhathathreya for Prasurama & Karthaveeryarjuna, Yama for Nachiketha, sungod or Surya for Anjaneya or Hanuman, Chankya for Chandragupta were all the phenomenal gurus and sishyas. Their sole aim is to make their students excel in their chosen fields.

    Then came the stage of using palm leafs and copper plates to preserve the teachings in the form of manuscripts. Later on the system of school education began with slate and slate pencil. As the days progressed, with the invention of printing machine, the methods of using books and notebooks were introduced into the education system. With more advancement in every field, even the education scenario moved to ‘SMART class & OMR sheets. In the place of GURU, Google is being substituted. With the onset of modern education, the teachers too made them to fit to handle the subjects and impart the essence in the best possible way.

    Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Vivekananda, Rukmini devi Arundale, Yoga guru Krishnamachary, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam all left an inerasable mark in the field of teaching. On this Teachers day, salutes to all the teachers of yesterday, today &tomorrow.

    HAPPY TEACHERS DAY

    U r happy & made others I mean the readers happy on this day dedicated to Sarvepalli Bharat Rathna ex president of India Dr Radhakrishnan .
    2. You had begun thewrite up nicely from one’s babyhood to adult to (wo)man.
    3. There is always a teacher and a student, A guru & shishya co-exist in every one of us.
    I tried to recall and recapture every wrung of that ladder which remained instrumental in turning a civilised man out of me. This gives raise to a write up on one’s exp with their bonding with gurus at various stages of life in school and society
    thanks and Regards.
    Grubyho namaha!

    :hello:It always warms up one’s heart, if FB is appreciated & in that sense your response to my FB is double welcome.
    2. I had indicated that it would be a good story if one attempts to write about their deeds and special situations they had with their teachers all the way from LKG to doctoral and am sure it will have potential for learning.
    3. I am gathering points and would come out with it...
    Thanks and Regards.

    Each profession occupies a specific niche in society — doctors heal, engineers design and bankers handle our money. Teaching, however, stands out as a special entity. At a preliminary stage, teachers instill the transcendent faculties of communication, decision making and awareness of social responsibilities. Later in life, no matter which field we choose to pursue, we again turn to teachers for training. A strong information base and well developed capabilities of comprehension and analysis are critical for progress.

    The society and the set up have changed in the past 60 years. We see total indiscipline and deterioration of values in children.In many schools teachers are daunted or blackmailed by students and there have been murder attempts on teachers.

    Schools have great potential as a locus for crime prevention. Teachers have to be more careful in the developmental years especially in crime prone zones.They have much more responsibility to help youth develop as healthy, happy, productive citizens;. and the community
    usually supports schools' efforts to socialize youth. Many of the precursors of delinquent behavior are school-related and therefore likely to be amenable to change through school-based intervention.

    Once a strong base is created by school and college teachers, everyone understands that learning is never a finished job and it is an ever lasting process.We are always learners in one form or other.
    1. We learn from our children. They become our teachers.
    2.We learn from our mistakes.Mistakes become masters.
    3.All our anger & agonies,beatings & burnings,challenges & churns,cries and cracks,toils and turmoils,twists & turns make us mellow down & season us a lot.
    4. From good persons we know how to be,and from the so called wicked we know how not to be.
    5. When we listen to music,it soothens our hearts & music becomes our preceptor.
    6.When we hear the mazhalai or babblings of children, we forget the pressing problems. then children become our masters.
    7.The sun,the rain,the mountains ,the rivers & trees- all are teaching the lesson of PAROPAKARA ,without uttering a single word by their mere routine.

    (Uddhava Gita ( Krishna's teachings to his friend Uddhava, before He ascended heaven, gives a list of 24 teachers inclusive of reptiles, birds, plants and animals and courtesans too

    8. Above all,"SILENCE" itself is the greatest GURU-MAUNA GURU.It is meditation in SILENCE that brought into our Bharat so many great thinkers,luminaries & Acharyas whom we revere most.
    The list is endless.
    Let us bow with reverence,not only to human teachers,but also to NATURE and above all to every small bit and piece of experience in our life.
    Let Teachers' Day be a memorable day.

    Jayasala42
