Panaji, September 5, 2014 …. Chief Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar has greeted the teachers on the occasion of the 53rd  Teacher’s Day. In his message, he says I have great pleasure, in extending my warm and very sincere greetings to the teaching community of Goa.

          September 5th  is the birthday of late Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, our former  President, who was a highly learned and distinguished  teacher, besides being a renowned educationist  and philosopher.

          Since, time immemorial,  the teacher has been revered as a role  model who  shapes the lives of young and budding students, and gives them the light of  knowledge and ignites their minds. A good teacher, can only, give and give. On  this day all our teacher’s should strive to achieve  the best out of their students and  Society.

          While celebrating Teacher’s  Day, we respectfully  pay homage  to him and recall the monumental role played  by teachers as builders of the Nation.

          On this occasion, I appeal to the teaching community of Goa, to draw inspiration from Dr. S. Radhkrishnan and discharge  their duties with renewed  sense of dedication and commitment. I extend my greetings and felicitations to  all the teachers of the State of Goa and wish  them all success.
