By Uma Purkayastha Teachers are the main architects of the nation. On this day students offers various gifts and greetings for their teachers. If you have a teacher, you never stop being a student.

- "To look upon life as an evil and treat the world as delusion is sheer ingratitude". Not only physical punishment, sometimes mental harassment by the teachers creates more phobia among the students which results school dropouts.

You deserve recognition for all the sacrifices that you make, you are more than a teacher to me and I THANK YOU!

Dear Teacher, Thank You For Continually Inspires me to do my best You help me strive for goals, I found guidance, friendship, discipline and love, everything, in one person.
