Why we should be Happy about Teachers' Day

My language proficiency helps me earn my livelihood. Thanks to Meera Kamath and Mohana teacher (English), Krishnan sir (English), Bajaj teacher (Hindi), Rukmini teacher (Hindi) and Shubhangi teacher and Rekha Patil (Marathi).

My Maths helps me count my earnings. Thanks to Selvin sir and Lata madam.

My discipline helps me stay focused thanks to Lata madam (Principal).

I realise I can be more fit thanks to Pishal sir (PT).

I understand colours and forms thanks to D'Mello teacher (Drawing).

I know much about the food I eat, the plants I grow, the electronics I use, the medicines I take, the air I breathe... thanks to my Science teachers - Somali Ghosh teacher, Sudha teacher and Yadav sir.

I know about my rights and duties thanks to Meera Kamath teacher (Civics).

From the smallest things in our life to our biggest decisions, what our teachers taught us has a major contribution.

When we count the notes correctly before handing them over to a cabwallah, when we fight against corruption / negligence / potholes / wrongdoers, when we pay our taxes, when we earn a promotion, when we help somebody, when we spend hours on Facebook / Gaming and then realise we have wasted a lot of time, when we do engineergiri to make our remote / mobile handset / laptop work, when we say "I have" and "He has" (and not "I has" and "He have") in our daily bakbak, when we manage to be polite with someone even when we don't want to be... we are using the knowledge our teachers have imparted us during the foundation years of our life.

We might have done masti during some lectures, we might have poked fun at some teachers, we might have been scared of some teachers... but in some hidden corner of our heart we know how much these teachers meant to us. We all should be grateful that they were there when we didn't even know that we need them. We all should be happy about Teachers' Day!
