He was an esteemed philosopher, scholar, and statesman who served as President from 1962-1967. Dr Radhakrishnan believed strongly in education’s importance; indeed he dedicated much of his own teaching career towards its advancement.

Honor the Importance of Teachers:

“Guru Govind dou khade, kaake lagu paaye, Balihari guru aapno, Govind diyo milaye.”
In these lines, Kabir beautifully conveys that when a teacher and God stand together, one should first bow to the teacher because it is the teacher who leads us towards enlightenment and understanding of life.

You are the guiding lights who illuminate our lives. It is not only on this day but every day that we should express our respect and gratitude towards our teachers. Just as rain is incomplete without clouds, our lives would be incomplete without teachers.
Thank you to my teachers, once more. Your unfaltering support and guidance has always been immensely appreciated.”
