Thank you Teachers!

Teachers’s day was celebrated all over India yesterday 5th September 2015. This occasion is marked to celebrate the birth anniversary of the second President of India, academic philosopher Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan

 || Gurur Brahmaa Gurur Vishnu Gurur Devo Maheshwarah Guru SaakshaataParabrahma Tasmai Shri Guruve Namah ||

Is a widely quoted Sanskrit sloka (verse) which means The teacher is creator Brahma; he is preserver Vishnu; he is also the destroyer Siva and he is the source of the Absolute

And on this day, i take this honor of thanking all those people who have held my hands, opened my mind and touched my heart.

HAPPY TEACHER’s DAY!!! – MOM, the first and my best teacher in life who helped me be the person i am today. I wish you were here cause i really need you now more than ever, your scoldings, your love, your guidance, those letters of yours when we were miles apart for always keeping me grounded, i miss them. I miss you mummy. You have been the best teacher not just for me but for all the students you have taught, i could tell it from the number of students who turned up at your rituals and so many days even after that.

I also thank Subhalakshmi mam who helped me take my first dance steps and nurturing that interest in me when i was just 4, along with Beena Mam and Arpita Hawlader mam.

12 years of my life i have been guided by my Carmel Teachers who have helped me shape my life. Unless and until the roots are strong, a tree can never grow happy and tall.

  13. Mother is the first and the best teacher. = The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. This proverb exhausts that mother is the only personality who teaches the first word to call her and morality that the child has to follow throughout the life in order to make her child grow into a total personality. Whatever the mother teaches her child it creates permanent impression in the heart and mind of the child and so the life of the child gets embodied with the mother’s teaching. The influence of mother over her children will be strong that she will make a dull child into a brilliant child.
