“The main objective of teaching is not to give explanations, but to knock at the doors of the mind.” – Rabindranath Tagore
A teacher is not someone solely confined to the four walls of a classroom. A teacher is the emblem of wisdom, experiences, kindness, discipline and compassion. Teachers mentor their students with the purest intention of seeing them spread their wings and fly to the sky. The Teacher’s Day celebration was held on Thursday, 5 September 2019 as a mark of accolade to the part played by the teachers in the society and to pay tribute to the greatest mentor Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan who was a great advocate of edification, and was the distinguished envoy, academician and India’s former President.
