Radheshyam expressing his heartfelt gratitude to the teachers for their contributions in the field of education said it is very hard to conceive a society without teachers.

The firm belief, commitment and dedication of the teachers have been the guiding force in shaping the society and the nation. The nations are built in classrooms and teachers groom the young minds in the classrooms. Great personalities and all the individuals in every profession are moulded by the teachers, he said.

Education begins at home and one should never forget their parents, the very first teacher who makes huge sacrifices to give the best to their children, he added.

Every teacher always wishes for the well being of the students. One should always respect the teachers and expressed that the faith in teachers needs to be reaffirmed like in olden days. The teachers not only bestow knowledge but also the conduct, thought and discipline of life. Teacher in himself or herself is an institution.

He pointed out that the new National Education Policy, 2020 contains chapters for teachers that envisions restructuring and rebuilding of the professional standards for teachers.
