Teacher's Day September 5th


Teacher, originally uploaded by Jeevan_.

A student spends 25,000 hours in the campus. The school must have the best of teachers who have the ability to teach, love teaching and build moral qualities.
- President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Teachers mold the lives that they influence. Lessons learned from teachers remain with their students throughout life. Teachers that break down barriers and reach into the souls of the students that they are responsible for do not get the recognition or gratitude they have earned. Many teachers are exhausted from their workload and responsibilities. They have their own families, financial and life stresses that challenge them along with everyone else. We should always respect our teachers. Teachers need encouragement and support from the community to feel that their devotion to students is appreciated.

Socrates was an example of a good teacher. He considered himself a learner as well as a teacher. For Socrates, love and friendship were the proper contexts for the pursuit of wisdom and goodness. Socrates saw himself only as a catalyst. He felt it was not his teaching, but actually the power of the Divine, which enabled the person, he was talking with to improve himself.

Why do we celebrate Dr.Radhakrishnan birthday as teacher’s day?

In India 5th September is celebrated as Teachers' day. 5th September is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the president of India in 1962, some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate 5th September, his "birthday". In reply, Dr, Radhakrishnan said, "instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers' day". The request showed Dr.Radhakrishnan's love for the teaching profession. From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers' Day in India.

About Radhakrishnan

Born on September 5, 1888, at Tiruttani, 40 miles to the north-east of Chennai, Radhakrishnan grew to become the most famous Indian teacher and philosopher of all times. He was also the Vice-President of India from 1952-1962. He held the office of the Chancellor, University of Delhi, before taking over as the President of India in May 1962.

do i take a car insurance firm to small claims court? The insurer supplier declined my claim, (I would take the responsible driver to small claims nevertheless , I've got no address to serve them or send a requirement letter). One other driver was at fault but his particular insurance company says there is really a difference in your statements so they really have to take the word of their insured vs. my word. I'm sure they acted in undesirable belief and did not carry out a proper investigation would this be described as a valid claim in small claims court? I want to accept the the culprit drivers insurance carrier (not my own) to small claims to the damages to my car.
