Children love Teacher's day. It gives them a chance to present flowers to their teachers.
Dr. Radhakrishnan had a great insight and it is evident from his writing. He must have been a great teacher.
In my opinion, a teacher has to teach bravery to a child. By bravery I mean to inculcate independent opinions and nurture a child to get an individuality.

On teacher's day
A student comes rushing towards teacher and says, "Politically Powerful Pupil is coming to me and saying that bow to me. What to do?"
Teacher says, "Tell the Politically Powerful Pupil to make you forget all that happened in your past."
The student comes back and says to teacher," Sir, the Politically Powerful Pupil says he will only keep me reminding of my past."
The teacher says, "Think about money and fame. These two will give you such a good future that you will forget your past. And remember power only reminds you of your past so that it can reign."
