Do you know what is a Guru/Teacher?
If you are familiar with the verse :
गुरू गोविन्द दोऊ खड़े, काके लागूं पांय।
बलिहारी गुरू अपने गोविन्द दियो बताय।।
It simply means that guru is above god because without him I would be lost. So the purpose of the guru is to illuminate the path towards greatness in your life – for some it will be the path of education, for some it will be enlightened. Whatever it is, the importance of a guru in one’s life can not be ignored.
If you look at your journey from the beginning – your first guru was your mother and from there you had people guiding you to help navigate difficult situations in your life – you went to school, college, university and there you met brilliant minds, professors, teachers who helped you become the very person you are today.
Of Course the choices were yours but without their guidance it wouldn’t be possible.
So today is not the day to celebrate only the teachers who offered you classes in your school or college but it’s a day to celebrate everyone who imparted any sense of knowledge in you to help you become this very person.
At EngVarta today we celebrate our English experts and you both.
Happy Teachers day!
