Qualities of a teacher

Teachers’ Day is celebrated in memory of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan in all educational institutions across the country. Generally on such occasions, a few words are spoken on the greatness of Dr. Radhakrishnan and a few retired teachers are felicitated.

The often quoted sloka: Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishnu Gurudevo Maheswaraha, Guru Sakshat Para Brahma Tasmai Sri Guruve nnamaha.

Well, do we actually find such students who can truthfully feel and say that their teacher is Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara? I wonder whether there can be a positive reply for this.

If we actually wish to achieve such a situation where such noble words come out from the bottom of the heart of students, something needs to be done and quickly too.

A teacher should love his students and the subject he teaches.

A teacher should have infinite patience. The students may do something wrong out of their ignorance. Yet, the teacher should impart his knowledge to them and continue to be their benefactor.

Welcome move

This refers to “New rules for obtaining heavy vehicle driving licence”, The Hindu, September 3. Keeping in view the road safety measures to avoid accidents, the Central Government’s decision to amend the Central Mo tor Vehicle Rules, 1989, is a welcome move.

It is a good move to make minimum educational qualification, i.e., 8th class pass mandatory for truck and heavy vehicle drivers and plans for minimum qualification for two-wheeler and car users too.

In fact, many unlettered truck and tractor drivers do not have any driving licence and resort to driving very fast without observing road indications, thereby leading to accidents.

In the same manner, the auto drivers try to take children to schools on dangerous roads. Generally, many accidents occur due to illiteracy, bad driving and intoxication. And it is a pity that the traffic police pester drivers of two-wheelers.

Noise pollution

There is a constant rise in noise pollution. Our market places, bus stands, railway platforms and road traffic have been registering ever increasing levels of noise pollution. There seems to be no serious effort to tackle nose pollution and make our surroundings liveable, sustainable and environment-friendly.
