TEACHERS DAY

Hi frnds, I'm very much overwhelmed with the response I got for my earlier post and very surprised to know that in so many countries of the world Teachers day is not celebrated. As pointed out by one of my friend Good Teachers are a gift given to this world and we should all appreciate the important role they play in developing the future citizens of any country. To attract good people to this profession first of all they shoud be paid very well and the teaching profession itself should be looked above any other profession. In India there is a sanskrit shloka which equates Teacher (Guru) to the almighty God and says he should be given euqal respect.
As Bloggers I think we should do something about it. We can all decide a day whcih can be celebtrated as Teachers day worldwide and then we will share that message with our blogger friends and ultimately spread the message in our respective socities. I believe as a Blogger community we have the power to do it. Once the day becomes popular I'm sure our Greeting card companies will be too happy to spread the message through other media.
I request all my blogger friends to spare a thought about it and I think this will be an ultimate gift (Guru dakshina) to all our teachers who really deserve a better treatment in this World.

It would be a great idea, except not all young people in England are respectful to their teachers. You have a very sweet culture.

That is a wonderful idea, however I have to agree with Elle, not many kids (specially the older ones) respect teachers here - it is very sad but unfortunatley that is how it is!

Wouldnt that be nice to have a teachers day, they have to seem a every other kind of special day in the world for great leaders, or people who discovered things. Most great leaders would probaly would have never even existed with out the help of their teachers. Good post

One of the first things I remember being taught in school is:

Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishnu,
Gurur Devo, Maheshwara,
Guru saakshal param Brahman,
Tasmai sri guruve namah.

(Rough translation)
teacher is brahma, teacher is vishnu,
teacher is lesser gods, Shiva,
teacher is actually the one supreme God,
So I bow to my teacher.

perhaps this fosters a sense of respect for teachers from an early age?

Hi frnds, I thank u all for the very supportive comments I received from u on my "Teachers Day" post. Well I agree with u that may be in present times what I proposed is bit ambitious. But I'm happy that we all agree that Teachers play an important role in shaping our future generation and they deserve much better treatment. As beautifully said by Mosilager through the sanskrit shloka.
