In India we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan as Teachers’ day every year. It’s a coincidence this year we celebrate ‘Vinayaka Chaturthi’ too today across India. Lord Vinayaka/Ganapati is the god of Buddhi (wisdom), Riddhi(prosperity) and Siddhi(attainment) according to Indian mythology.
On this Teacher’s day, a very nice thought came to my mind. Who is our first teacher? I think it’s our mother.
It feels very satisfying when a mother says I will learn again with my kid as I forgot few basics. What does it mean? I think it’s a very positive approach towards life. I came to learn this during an interaction earlier. It can reignite the passion in you and motivate your kid as well. This is an win-win situation for all in society when both can act as teacher and student for one another.
Do you have a second opinion?
You think and I am thinking about it to write more.
Let me share here few quotations in memory of our teachers.
Finally, something from my very own thoughts …
“Our mother is our best teacher as long as we visualize, respect and learn from her as our teacher”
Happy Teachers’ Day to all !
