Teacher’s Day Special: Will honour & respect remain intact by celebrating the day?
As much as the system has marginalized a teacher, perhaps no one else has. Today teachers have many problems, but no one is ready to ask them. Yes, the teacher is definitely blamed for the problems.
People are very happy when they talk about the reforms being done in the education world, but is it okay to see the word reform only with teachers?
5 September is Teacher’s Day. In India, this day is celebrated as Teacher’s Day. The birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the first Vice President of independent India, falls on this day.
He himself was also a teacher. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 1954.
In 1962, he was elected the second President of the country. After becoming the Vice President, when this educationist took over the responsibility of the President, some former students came to congratulate him on his birthday on 5th September, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan said that instead of celebrating my birthday, you should celebrate this day as Teacher’s Day.
His greatness can be gauged from the fact that instead of celebrating his birthday, he dedicated this day to all the teachers, even though today the usefulness of this day to honour a teacher is negligible.
Teacher’s Day Special
In today’s era, it is worth considering whether the students and teachers of today really want to celebrate this day? Has a teacher really been able to maintain that honour today?
In a person’s life, the teacher is more important than the creator, because knowledge makes a person human, gives life worth living and that knowledge cannot be shared by anyone except a teacher.
The Pandavas were victorious in the Mahabharata due to the teachings that Guru Dronacharya taught to the Pandava-sons, especially Arjuna, in ancient times.
It was Guru Dronacharya who himself was defeated but made his disciples victorious by his teachings.
There has been such a great tradition of disciple-guru in India from Rama-Vishvamitra, Krishna-Sandipani, Arjuna-Dronacharya to Chandragupta Maurya-Chanakya and Vivekananda-Ramakrishna Paramhansa etc.
Is the teacher going far away from these things in the present scenario?
There are many reasons behind these doubts being true to a large extent.
First of all, the purpose for which the teacher has come to this area for the noble cause like teaching, today he himself is going away from it or is being removed from it.
In this, sometimes he blames the system and sometimes the society, but even if he wants to, he does not want to look at his fault, why after all?
As much as the system has marginalized a teacher, perhaps no one else has. Today teachers have many problems, but no one is ready to ask them.
Yes, the teacher is definitely blamed for the problems. People are very happy when they talk about the reforms being done in the education world, but is it okay to see the word reform only with teachers?
Society blames the teacher for everything that spreads the light of education.
Even if a teacher is on leave for his important work at home, then this society is nothing, but yes, first of all, he will definitely say that Masterji is on “Farlu”, is this the truth? Is the teacher society dependent on fuel, do they not get holidays like others to get, then why everyone sees only teachers?
One system sometimes made him a cook, sometimes a mason, sometimes a postman, sometimes a babu, sometimes a JE, sometimes a surveyor, sometimes an election officer, sometimes a pharmacist, sometimes a peon, sometimes a disaster manager and don’t know if there is anything or hardly anything left which he is not. made.
At the time of examination results, it is said that if the result is not correct, then the department will measure less, but the media is engaged in measuring the teachers more.
Teacher’s Day Special
How will the teacher be able to discharge his work properly, as long as he remains in the shadow of tension, fear and slavery? Sometimes a teacher has to face punishment for what he is not guilty of.
When there is news of misbehaviour with teachers by a student, then there is no response from this society, system and media, then no one talks about the rights of that teacher, neither the society nor the system, while screaming for the rights of the children.
Told and explained. The level of education may not have increased due to new experiments, but the image of a teacher has definitely been tarnished.
Now let’s talk about the frustrations of a teacher, so at present, the teacher wants to change his definition. Instead of calling himself a teacher, he wants to name himself according to the terms.
He does not mind teaching small classes for his position, then how does the teacher expect a child to have the respect he cries for all the time. The class can never be small or big, the thinking can definitely be small or big.
A teacher behaves honestly in his profession under any circumstances.
Today every teacher wants to get respect, but should that respect be based on conditions. Now teaching is no longer a noble act, but it has become a mere resource for earning money.
In this age of materialism, the teacher, which was once seen as a virtuous work like education, for some teachers, today it has become only a means of earning money power.
The teacher is the link between the student and education which connects all the other links in the society. Today the need is not only for bookish knowledge but for an education full of moral values.
Anyway, the teacher should not forget that the teacher is more important than the giver of birth.
Success is of anyone, the important contribution in that foundation is the teacher, without a teacher neither a person has become great, nor without a teacher-disciple, a country can dream of becoming great.
Today there is a need for the teacher to bring out that teacher hidden inside himself, who can not only show him the true path but also lead the students of the country on the path which the country needs the most at this time.
To maintain the importance of a holy festival like a teacher, both the guru and the disciple have to fulfil their responsibilities and duties honestly.
Nothing will be achieved just by completing the formalities in the name of Teacher’s Day on 5th September.
