IBS Kolkata Symphony 2019 – A day dedicated to our teachers

“Teachers are the backbone of any country, the pillar upon which all aspirations are converted into realities”- APJ Abdul Kalam.

A teacher is a friend, philosopher and guide who holds our hand, opens our mind and touches our heart. A teacher is the best educator of the students and thereby to the society at large.   The contribution of a teacher cannot be ignored at all. In many countries across the world, teacher’s day is a special day where teachers of schools, colleges and universities are honoured specially. The date varies from country to country. In India, the Teacher’s Day is celebrated on 5th September every  year and this tradition started from the year 1962. The birth date of the second President of India, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, 5 September 1888, has been celebrated as Teacher’s Day since 1962. On this day, teachers and students report as usual but the usual activities and classes are replaced by activities of celebration, thanks and remembrance.

The ICFAI Business School Kolkata celebrated Teacher’s day celebration on September 5th, 2019 with due fanfare and romp. A good teacher has greater influence in shaping the life of an individual, even more than his/her parents. In our country’s culture, a teacher has been given a place equals to the almighty God of education and learning process. A good teacher’s proper guidance and support is very important in achieving anyone’s goal in life and his/her dream comes true with the proper guidance of a teacher. We Indians, who take great pride in reinventing good traditional practices, celebrate TEACHER’S DAY  every year.
