Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal
Teacher’s day is like an occasion and opportunity
To pay tribute and gratitude
To the teachers
for the continuous, selfless and precious efforts
in shaping the student’s future.
Teachers are the reason
to enrich all the quality education system.
Different countries celebrate teacher’s day
on different days
The concept developed during 20th century
and started celebrating
a local educator
or an important milestone
This is the prime cause
why different countries celebrate the day
on different dates.
India celebrates teacher’s day on 5th September
The birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan,
Second President of India, academic philosopher
as teacher’s day … since 1962.
On this day teachers and students
report to school as usual
But the usual activities and classes are replaced
by activities of celebration,
thanks and remembrance.
Senior students takes the responsibilities
In Bangladesh, it is on 4th October
Students greet teacher, send cards, gifts
Try to surprise their teachers
with anything they can think of.
Pakistan celebrates 5th October
The international teacher's day
Along with whole world.
