Teachers’ Day across the world is celebrated as the most cherished relationship between a mentor and a disciple. The bond of trust, wisdom, and most importantly, all about growth. Teachers indeed can affect eternity and none can tell where their influence stops.
But, it’s not necessarily about an educationist, a teacher can be found in anyone, by anyone. What a teacher is, is more important than what he teaches. And so, a teacher can be found in a parent, a friend, and above all, in mother nature. Essential qualities like compassion, dedication, empathy, and passion are taught not within closed classrooms but, in the experience of the guru, opening doors of possibilities for the generations to come. Kindling curiosity and fuelling passion to grow soulfully is the foundation of the unbreakable bond.
A true teacher is one who shows us where to look and not what to see and Mother Nature truly is an example of this quality. She is eternally the most unconditional and resourceful mentor. She expresses herself in form of the growing trees, blossoming flowers, and animals who teach their young ones to survive. Our parents are our first-ever teachers who are portals of infinite wisdom and the world. They bring us into this earth and teach us ways to live life with human values and ethics. Our boon companions too, have a teacher in them. They hold us up when we feel low, give us space to share both our happy and sad moments, and crucially support us through thick and thin. This teacher’s day, let’s celebrate the relationship that has the power to change our lives for the brighter and better versions of ourselves.
