Happy Teacher’s Day Speech 2013
Respected Sir, teachers and my dear friends, today we are celebrating The Teachers’ Day.
The importance of Teachers in our life cannot be overstated. I need quote only one stanza from Kalidas’a Raghuvansham. ‘Sa bhavat pitarah tasam, pitaraah kewalam janmahetavah’ (The -the teachers-are the real fathers of the students. The students’ natural fathers are just a means of giving birth to them.
The primacy of teachers in our lives cannot be told more effectively than this. Teachers mould the lives that they influence. Lessons learned from teachers remain with the students throughout life. They-the teachers- break down barriers and reach into our souls Breathes there a student with soul so dead/Who never to himself hath said, “Thanks, Oh Teacher, thanks. You made a man out of an ignoramus. Teachers are tired with their workload and responsibilities. They have their own families, financial and life stresses that challenge them along with everyone else. And yet when they come into the class they almost step into a different r audient personality. We should therefore, always respect our teachers. Teachers need encouragement and support from the community to feel that their devotion to students is appreciated.
The beginning of the observation of Teachers’ Day on 5th here in India 5th September is celebrated as Teachers’ day. 5th September, it is a tribute to a great teacher Dr S. Radhakrishnan. It is his birthday when he became the president of India in 1962, some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate 5th September, his “birthday”. In reply, Dr, Radhakrishnan said, “instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers’ day”. The request showed Dr.Radhakrishnan’s love for the teaching profession. From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers’ Day in India. Though it is observed all over the world on different dates according to the ethos of the country.
We sincerely thank our present and past teacher for the idols they have sculpted out of us the lumps of clay as Kalidas said. I will close my address with quotation of this stanza. He -the teacher-polishes the stones of students in such a way that they reflect the light of the Sun into them.
I am talking to you on the special occasion of Teachers’ Day. On this day, we gratefully remember the great educationist Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, whose dream was that “Teachers should be the best minds in the country”. Hence, Teachers’ Day is very important for all our people, for our students and even for all the parents, as the teachers lay the foundation for creating enlightened citizens for the nation. On this day, I would like to recall the teachers who helped me in shaping my life.
In India, Teacher’s Day (also called Teachers’ Appreciation Day or National Teacher’s Day) is celebrated on 5th of September, every year. The date was selected, because it is the birthday of a timeless teacher and the former President of India – Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. When some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, he said, “instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege, if September 5th is observed as Teacher’s day”. The request showed Dr.Radhakrishnan’s love for the teaching profession. From then onwards, the 5th of September has been observed as Teachers Day, in India.
Teachers have an influencing role in the life of every student. They are like beacons of light, guiding us in the formative years of our life. Teachers mould us and in the process and shape our future. What we learn from our teachers remains with us, throughout our life. However, very often, we fail to show our appreciation and gratitude for their altruistic devotion.
Teachers do need encouragement and support from the community to feel that their efforts are being recognized. To serve the purpose, Teacher’s Day is celebrated throughout the world, year by year. By celebrating National Teacher’s Day, we thank our teachers for providing us their invaluable guidance.
My dear students, Ladies and gentleman, I am extremely happy to be amongst you on this coveted occasion of teacher’s day. Friends, As you are aware, that we celebrate teacher’s day on 5th Sept. every year throughout the country, to mark the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvapalli RadhaKrishnan, the second president of India, a profound philosopher, statesman and educationalist of exceptional stature. In fact, Teachers day commemorates the memory of Dr. Radhakrishnan and his notable contributions to the cause of education. This day also recall and acknowledge the immense contributions of countless teachers of our nation. Friends, Teacher is an English word and the Sanskrit word for teacher is GURU, which comes from GU and RU. The GU indicates the darkness and RU indicates which removes the darkness. Therefore, a teacher’s role is a torch bearer and pivot of any educational system of younger students. On him rests the failure or the success of the system. If the teachers are well educated and if they are intellectually alive and take keen interest in their responsibility, then only the success is ensured. Teaching, in fact, is not a job, it is an attitude. Teacher is a source of information, a guide, a mentor, a motivator, all at the same time.
Our former honorable president, Dr. APJ Kalam, in his book India2020: “A vision of new millennium” rightly brought out the role of a teacher, Quote “If you are teacher in what ever capacity you have a very special role to play because more than any body else, it is you who are shaping the future generations”
I am proud of your dedication to the profession and for the personal sacrifices you make to teach our children. I am delighted of your devotion to train their questing minds, and for your inspiration of their hopeful hearts. I am proud that you take this responsibility seriously —that you see it as sacred trust. We celebrate teachers’ day, because we value you. I want to remind you that all the parents, students and the wider community deeply appreciate your commitment to teaching and to the children. There is no substitute for education. Firstly, because it’s the most precious gift we can give our children. Secondly, because it’s the most critical investment in our future and thirdly, because it’s the most effective strategy which will enable us to survive and to thrive in a changing world.
