Teachers' Day 2013

Today is an important day in India. It is celebrated as the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (The first Vice-President of Independent India) and more importantly as Teachers' Day, as he wished.

This day is also the death anniversary of my father according to the English calender. As the saying `Behind every man, there is a woman' goes, my mother offered great support to my father in serving the community as an excellent Headmaster.

It was nice to receive greetings from my former students, colleagues and last but not least from Sreejith (about whom I have written in my earlier posts) on the occasion of Teachers' Day today. In fact Sreejith's greeting arrived first among others in my inbox and my mobile phone. Very many thanks to all those who remember me. My best wishes go with them.
