NPP and DNSU convey Teachers’ Day greetings
The National People’s Party (NPP) Nagaland State joined the rest of the nation in edifying and wishing the teachers on the occasion of Teachers’ Day 2020.
It evoked the words of former President of India Pranab Mukherjee: “Inspired teachers are the building blocks of a good education system. An inspired teacher links the individual goals of the students to the societal and national goals.”
The NPP said a teacher is not someone solely confined to the four walls of a classroom but the sum total of wisdom, experiences, kindness, discipline and compassion. A teacher mentors their student with the purest intention of seeing them spread their wings and take to the skies.
“One must learn how a teacher is not simply a professional. They are our friends, who prepare us for the real world, who want nothing but to see us happy, successful and unbeaten. And when we face hardships, a true teacher is always there to get us up and going. That teacher can be a close friend; can be our parents, maybe a doting uncle, or a wise grandparent. The fortunate ones make the closest friend out of a classroom teacher. And that’s a special bond between a teacher and a pupil that has no specific definition, but is a precious gem that must be treasured forever.
“A teacher’s place is one of deep reverence and every teacher, who toils hard for the betterment of a room full of students, is actually someone striving for a better future of the nation. They are creating future world leaders, doctors, scientists, lawyers, philosophers, entertainers, and more teachers,” the message read.
“On the special occasion of Teachers’ Day, which also marks the birth anniversary of the former President of India, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, let us pay our heartfelt respect to our guides, who taught us not just math and science, but how to never back down and hold our heads high,” it added.
DNSU: The Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) in its message to teaching community on the occasion of Teachers’ Day, said ‘a teacher is like a candle; it consumes itself to light the way for others’.
“As we celebrate this auspicious day, it is a must for each one of us to retrospect the goodness done in our lives by our teachers,” it read.
DNSU said the pandemic has not stopped the teachers in imparting education to students through online and offline and for which they will be fondly remembered in history.
Stating that the teachers are doing their best for the students to keep learning and going ahead despite all odds, it said ‘we need to show our appreciation in any way possible to boost their spirit’.
The union saluted all the teachers from different fields for taking the lead in making a vibrant society and a better place to live in. It further prayed that the Almighty bless them.
