Teacher’s Day is a special occasion when students honour their teachers worldwide and celebrate their significance in all of our lives. A teacher plays many roles in a student’s life: be it the role of a philosopher, friend, guide or a guardian. The date of this special occasion varies throughout the world.
In our country, it is celebrated on September 5th since 1962, as it is the birth date of the great teacher and our second president Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. On this occasion, students, especially in schools and colleges, celebrate their teacher’s hard-work by organising a whole event and show their love by the means of various performances and visual arts.
Talking of teachers, a teacher is not only the one who teaches in an institution like a school or college; a teacher is anyone who teaches you something at any stage of life.
Grandparents are the ones who are the closest to kids and, doubtlessly, they are our first and foremost teachers of life. They teach us so many life lessons through their experiences and it’s a blessing to hear their stories. So, to honour such wonderful teachers the Being Social team (Patna Chapter) reached an old age home called Sahara on September 8, 2019, to celebrate the day with utmost joy.
The day started with a yoga session by volunteers to rejuvenate the energy, which was then followed by a series of fun games and activities with the main motive to spread laughter in the home. It included games like saree draping by male volunteers, finding coins by using just mouth in the flour, etc. We concluded the activities by cutting a cake. After cake-cutting, lunch was served by the volunteers and all of us ate lunch together.
The event ended on a very happy note and it was a blessing to be able to bring bright, wide smiles on everyone’s face. Kudos to our volunteers and we definitely promise to go back again.
