Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) B D Mishra and Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Wednesday extended their Teacher’s Day greetings to every member of teaching community of the State.
The Governor of Arunachal Pradesh Brig. (Dr.) B.D. Mishra (Retd.) extended his warm greetings to each and every member of the teaching community of the State on the joyous occasion of Teachers’ Day, which commemorates the birth anniversary of one of the most illustrious sons of India and former President, Bharat Ratna Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
In his message, the Governor said that with tributes to Dr. Radhakrishnan, a versatile genius of India, let us also remember and honour our own teachers who have introduced us to letters and knowledge, who have guided us to the path of righteousness and morals, who have shaped our ideas about humanism and who have motivated us to be achievers in life.
On the occasion, the Governor sincerely congratulated those committed teachers of our State Arunachal Pradesh, who, inspite of encountering many hardships are imparting education to our younger generation in far-flung corners and remote areas in the State. He appealed to all the esteemed teachers to cultivate knowledge, ethical values, hard work, punctuality and discipline amongst their students in particular and the student community in general. This will best be achieved when our teachers, themselves become the role model for their students.
May the celebrations of this Teacher’s Day inspire us to follow the life values of Dr. Radhakrishnan. Let it also be remembered that the great Indian Culture has been handed down to us by our great sages and Acharyas, who were the epitome of Indian virtues. Now it is our duty to put all our energy in ensuring that those virtues are emulated and our nation’s mission of ‘Swachh Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat, and Ek Bharat’ is achieved with alacrity, the Governor said in his message.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu has conveyed his greetings and best wishes to the teaching fratenity of Arunachal Pradesh on occasion of Teacher’s Day.
In a message here this evening, Khandu said that the role of a teacher in one’s life is important and more precious than even the parents.
“Parents give us life but teachers give life to our life,” he said while paying rich tributes to his teachers, who shaped his career, especially during the early years, to become what he is today.
Admitting the hardships faced by teachers posted in remote areas, Khandu said their contribution in shaping the future of Arunachal becomes all the more significant.
“Teachers Day is one special day to pay tributes to our teachers and realize their importance in our lives. I call upon my student friends to respect teachers and give them their due for they expect nothing from you when you outgrow them in the future. All they want is respect and love from their students,” Khandu said.
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister paid tributes to Dr S Radhakrishnan, a great teacher and India’s second President, on who’s birthday – 5th September – Teachers Day is celebrated in the country.
