Every September 5th is celebrated as Teachers Day. And tributes are paid by the media and celebrities on that day. In India the concept of Guru has existed since a long time. India has produced many teachers who have reached great heights in their career. Dr. Radhakrishana whose birthday is celebrated as teachers day rose to become the first president of Independent India. Rabindranath Tagore has inspired a generation of Indian and as part of his legacy, we hum his poem as national anthem.
Coming to the modern times the name of Dr. Abdul Kalam is a shining example of what a teacher should be. He is responsible for inspiring the youth with his vision for the future. His words were laced with wit and wisdom and he had the knack of addressing serious issues in a simple few words. So on this teachers day let us remember all those great souls who have guided us throughout the ages.
