Rather than giving bookish knowledge a teacher is also giving the lessons of life. During the offline classes in a particular lesson, they give practical examples where we can use that knowledge. This can be there we never meet to a pilot, an army man, police, etc but no one never meets a teacher.

A teacher is not the one who is teaching you in a class. He can be anyone who tells you the right path. Who helps you in enhancing your knowledge or thinking level? He can be the one who also warns you when you are on the wrong path. That’s the real meaning of a teacher. So, On Teacher’s day wish to that person too who is adding some value to your life. Wish happily with your grateful heart Happy teacher’s day.
