ADDRESS BY THE CHIEF GUEST:
The Vice Chancellor in his speech said that TMU is known for imparting value education to the students. He also added that the significance of the function is to show respect to our Gurus who dispel darkness and ignorance around us.
Teachers give light to students. They sacrifice their life for the upliftment of the students by imparting not only knowledge but also wisdom. Knowledge can be obtained through various media like books, novels, newspapers and internet. But students can acquire wisdom only through teachers. As wig in the lamp, the teachers sacrifice themselves to brighten the lives of the students. Thus the Vice Chancellor appreciated all the teachers for their hard work, dedication and commitment.
Deputy Registrar Mrs. Vaishali, emphasized the importance of parents and teachers in one’s life. As Compared with Parents, teachers spend lesser time with the children. She stressed that “If the teacher is moulded properly then the society will also be moulded properly”. She advised the students to pay their respect to their teachers. It was her firm conviction that wisdom, happiness and peace, will prevail if teachers and students interact with each other with the spirit of oneness. She affirmed that a teacher not only disseminates knowledge but also her entire personality.
Every year Teachers’ Day is celebrated all over India on 5th September. It is because Dr. S. Radhakrishnan was born on this day. Dr. S. Radhakrishnan who later became a great government dignitary, was earlier an outstanding teacher. He taught in India and later in England. He was greatly loved by his pupils for his scholarship and affable manners.
He explained that on this day we pay regards and gratitude to our teachers for guiding us as a torch bearer to grow further in our life and achieve our goals. He also acknowledged it as noble profession and that teachers are creators who create students as officers, engineers, doctors and above all good human beings for the society.
The programme ended with dedication for the teachers by the messages and distribution of gifts to the teachers. Teachers have a positive disposition towards the whole event. Mr. Sandeep, M.Sc. II year student proposed vote of thanks.
