Are the days gone when teachers walked into the school/classroom and were respected by parents and children? Today, instead of giving respect to teachers, some of us give wounds with lethal words and obviously no teacher would stand for this. Parents and guardians should always remember that teachers play a very important role in a child’s life and should be treated with respect. Instead of molesting them, work with them in helping to nurture your child so that he would be a credit to society and to God.
India has an ancient tradition of a general reverence towards teachers (Gurus), from the times when young boys used to study in Gurukuls. They used to do all their chores without grumbling and didn’t dare question their teacher on his/her decisions. But, today, in a classroom, students insolently talk back and speak rudely to their teachers. With today’s generation having no respect for their teachers, the number of people opting for the teaching profession has reduced considerably. This is a matter of great concern.
We always had a old tradition of treating our teachers as gods who imparted knowledge but now mostly everyone think that teachers are just old people not worthy of respect, if they teach their students by rote. Most student even start talking negative about teachers behind their backs. Everyone should never disrespect these warm beings trying to impart knowledge to fresh minds.
We, as students of today, need to respect teachers as if they are our parents. Spreading knowledge is a noble deed which should be acknowledged by every student, irrespective of his/her age.
Remember, Treasures of wickedness profit nothing; but righteousness delivers from death.
