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.
