Teachers Day

“Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition.” Jacques Barzun

This year the Teachers of India stood up to applaud the contributions of the stalwarts who made the art & craft of learning so wonderful. We went nostalgic to recall our very first day as teachers. We recognized the hard fought battles we won to celebrate children,  child's right and childhood. Here is a refreshing of our memories of those days and events.

Thank you all.

I completed my post graduation in English from the University of Hyderabad in 1978. I was an enthusiastic 21-year-old who knew that she would ultimately become a teacher because it fell in line with what what most people did in those days, and also because I hail from a family of teachers!

I am not a teacher by profession, I  worked in software field for almost 15 years starting my career as a programmer and quit as senior architect.

The year was 1995....the first day of my role as a teacher in Kendriya Vidyalaya is still very much fresh and alive in my memory. The date was 1st November.Even though I was appointed as a Primary teacher I was given the responsibility of teaching Sanskrit in Classes VI  to VIII due to two reasons. The school did not have a qualified Sanskrit language teacher.
