In Hindi there’s a couplet by one of the greatest mystic poets by the name ‘Guru Govind Dou Khade’ this is one of his most remarkable works which establishes the importance of teachers even above Gods. It describes how a teacher, who tells the children about the existence of God and otherworldly things, is perhaps we must praise and worship more than God for giving us the invaluable lessons. That is why it is imperative that the person who teaches us everything and makes us worthy, feels special on the day that is celebrated to commemorate the contribution they have to the success of their students.

It is teacher’s day today and if you wish to make all your teachers feel great and special, send them the following quotes, messages, and greetings.
