Happy Teachers’ Day from Little GuruSkool
Did you know? Guru means teacher in Hindi and the word GuruSkool in our brand name is a play on the Hindi word “Gurukul” which were ancient centers of learning in India. As India observes Teachers’ Day today on September 5th, let’s thank all the teachers who have dedicated their life to education!
In India, Teachers’ Day is celebrated with zeal and enthusiasm, paying tribute to the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, who was a prominent thinker, philosopher and educator who believed that “teachers should be the best minds in the country.” To this day, he is highly regarded for his efforts to have built a bridge between the East and the West by showing that the philosophical systems of each tradition are comprehensible within the terms of the other. For students in India, Teachers’ Day is an occasion to pay reverence and gratitude to teachers for their selfless effort in shaping their career and enriching the education system in the process.
We encourage you to ask your children to show their appreciation to teachers in their life today! Share with us your own ways of saying ‘Thank You’ in the comments below!
