“Teaching is the one profession that creates all other professions.”
An age-old Sanskrit phrase “Mata Pita Guru Daivam” says that one has to respect people in that order, where teachers hold value more than a God, according to Hindu tradition. The full moon day in the month of Ashada celebrates and honors all Guru and it also commemorates the birth of Ved Vyasa, who has authored Mahabharata. This day is majorly celebrated among the Hindus, the Jains and the Buddhists.
Gurupurnima Celebration was held on 3rd July, 2023 where all the teachers were lauded and appreciated for imparting their knowledge and wisdom. This day was celebrated in multiple layers. The celebration began with students showcasing a skit which highlighted the importance of gurus in our lives. It was followed by a small video on Gurupurnima and then students anointed the forehead of all the teachers with a tilak to express their gratitude. The celebration ended with the cutting of the cakes. Apart from the celebration, students also wished their teachers personally with hand-made colorful, gratitude cards along with chocolates and warm hugs.
