Saluting the spirit of teacher-hood; GIIS Noida celebrates Teacher’s Day
“A great teacher shows you the way, but never tells you what to look at”
Indian culture has always valued the role of a teacher in one’s life, to the extent, that it is said “acharya devo bhava” implying that teacher is godlike. In honor of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, India’s second president and a great teacher who was born on September 5, youth of the country pays a special tribute to their gurus on this day.
