My salute to all my teachers for making me to think positive, curious to learn new things and for making ‘me’, who I am today!
September 5th of every year we celebrate birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan as Teachers’ Day. Another great teacher and visionary, Dr. Kalam’s was born on 15th October. This post is a dedicated to all the great teachers and my teachers.
This post was supposed to be published on 5th September with a note about all my teachers. But, how could I finish writing in a single day? So, whenever it is possible, I wish to write a line or two about my teachers, in the future.
