T for Teachers’ Day


Today is letter T for Blogging from A to Z April Challenge and I am writing on T for Teacher’s Day under the theme, ‘College Memories.’

 

Teacher’s Day

Our Spiritual parents who dispense knowledge to us tirelessly to ensure that we reach the elevated path of growth;

Our teachers, the shining light that bring spark in our lives,

they mould our character and made us who we are today;

Teacher spread goodness and makes the characters that shine in life;

Guru-Shishya (Teacher-Student) relationships bloom as darkness is dispelled and light is spread;

Teachers lit thousand candles in our hearts, minds and soul;

Grateful and blessed I am to have such wonderful spiritual fathers and mothers,

who led me like their sons in life;

I was berated for failing to fill my admission forms;

The ones who devoted selfless years of their life to our elevated growth,

deserve a small token of our appreciation;

Teachers’ Day in August celebrate the great minds full of wisdom and kindness;

It is our humble way to express our appreciation through a small gift,

handwritten cards and pen to show our love and affection to our spiritual parents;

A day where we pay tribute and bring a smile to the faces of the ones who held our tiny fingers,

as we bow to them with respect, love and affection;

Our teachers deserve all the love;

Their teachings remained forever with us in life.

With Love N Respect.

  1. Super post about the people who shape so many of our opinions and thoughts. I still remember my favourite teachers from school. What golden days they were! 🙂

    • I try to Debo and they are the ones who shaped my belief. I met my best teachers at Fergusson College and one from Junior School who was an FC alumni. A small and humble tribute to our spiritual parents:)

  2. That was a thoughtful and grateful post.No words are adequate to express our gratitude to our teachers who were great influence when we were young.I have known several scholarly teachers who responded to their calling with sincerity and passion despite the pittance they received. They shaped the minds and stoked fires that lay latent in young hearts. They would discover talent-academic, aesthetic and technical-and stimulate and guide the children to become proficient in their chosen skills.
    I liked your post immensely

    • Hey, thanks ton and it’s a small way to rewind college memories as well as paying a modest tribute to the ones whose debts we can never ever pay back in this life time. There are so many teachers who are not only sincere but went out of their way to ignite the talent in us, aesthetic skills and made us who we are today.

  3. There are some teachers who truly fit your post. I remember them with affection and then there were others we just want to forget. Nice tribute to teachers.

  4. A wonderful tribute to the teachers ….Vishal….and the expressions you used to show your gratitude towards them are amazing….same are my emotions for my teachers..

  5. I love being a student and being a teacher. I really enjoyed your thoughtful reflection on teachers, for the letter “T”. I stopped over from the FB page of the A to Z challenge and am glad I did!

    • Thanks a ton and glad to know bout the passion as a student and teacher. I am glad you came here, Dear teacher and continue the awesome work of teaching a generation. I remember our Economics lesson of explaining a merit good how a teacher dispensing education to one that will benefit so many, Cheerz to that and made me remember the Eco definition wo learning or going through the notes:)

  6. Hi Vishal,
    I was doing a blog feature theme this week and was wondering if I could feature your blog in one of my upcoming posts? I would probably refer some of your work too.
    I know it is last minute, but if you agree, can you let me know as quickly as possible? Don’t hesitate to reach out to me at priyanka.agasty@gmail.com in case of any doubts.
    Thank you.

  7. Teachers… yes.. Though I have never been a good student 😛 But yes, I love reading Usha Ma’am too Vishal 🙂

    • hehe!! Ive been a good student to ma fav teachers but been a student mostly outside classes..hehe reading Usha Ma’am is an education and she imparts knowledge on her blog:)

  8. It’s lovely that you picked “Teacher” for T. They are so instrumental in shaping our lives and minds. Most of our outlook and perspectives are modelled around teachers. When I was a child, my life’s aim was to be a teacher! I hopefully will be able to fulfill that desire someday. Good luck with the rest of the challenge!

    • Hi Aarthi thanks for hopping on. Teachers played a pivotal role in our life and they gave us perspectives for being role models. I worked as a teacher for a year and I realized I am not made for it. That’s why I am in awe of passionate teachers. You should go for it and teaching is a noble act. Thanks a tons and wish u best to teach soon:)

  9. My husband is a middle school teacher, and a lot of our friends are teachers as well. It is amazing how little respect and compensation our country’s (the U.S.) teachers get, when truly, it is one of the most important jobs out there. Thank you for your lovely post! 🙂

    • Its sad how there is little respect in many parts of the world for noble men and women who teach. What makes me feel sad is how Governments doesn’t give as much respect as they should for teachers. Send my best wishes to ur husband, Marci, for educating not a nation but a world:)

  10. And a teacher can play such a huge role in a student’s life (maybe sometimes without knowing it) … That was a beautiful hymn to the Teacher Vishal .. Enjoyed it:-)

  11. I thought T will bring the face of your best friend in your mind 😉
    You broke my heart!

    I have always been the teacher’s pet, they certainly hold a place of love and respect in my heart.

    • Hey! Sharmistha for sure I will feature u next for Trisha..nopes! M a nice sajjan guy and never break heart:) I had lovely chemistry and can’t really say bout being the teacher’s pet n but the unflinching respect and love been always there. My teachers means a lot to me:)

  12. You have expressed here a heartfelt tribute to your teachers here, Vishal! That is all the biggest reward for a teacher – sincere respect and gratitude from their learners. A very nice post! I value the sincerity of your feelings as expressed here.

  13. Vishal honestly I am overwhelmed after reading this post. Your dedication, devotion, and deference for your teachers is praise worthy. The memories of some teachers who influence us in school and college is etched in our mind for ever.
    I don’t know how I missed this post earlier. Thank you so much for your compliments. God bless you .

    • Thanks a ton Ma’am and it’s very less on my part as to what my teachers gave to me. You deserve everything in your life for educating generation of students in this noble profession called teacher. Usha Ma’am, you teaches us a lot on the blog and ur words of wisdom and intellect is something many of us look forward to:)
