Arjun Rampal also remembered his late mother on Teachers’ Day with an emotional post. “She sacrificed her whole life selflessly for the betterment of her children. Impacted in the best way hundreds of other children’s lives, who were her students,” read the actor’s post.
Shilpa Shetty, who visited her school in the recent past, dug out a photo with her favourite school teacher and addressed this note to teachers around the world: “They deserve all the appreciation and love we can possibly give them. Reach out to a teacher, wish them, and make them feel special today. Happy Teachers’ Day to every teacher out there, who is working on shaping minds for a better future every day.”
How does one thank a person who has helped shape their life? Words truly can never do justice to express gratitude for the role teachers play in our lives. But, I will still want to take this opportunity and thank all my gurus, luckily have a photo with one of them, when I visited my school recently, and she was still there. My favourite Physics teacher (didn’t like the subject as much as I liked her ) Radha Miss, always had this joie de vivre, positive energy and a huge smile when she entered the class… Nothing had changed. Maybe, I learnt to smile like that from her. She never held back her happiness ❤️???? In this lockdown especially seeing my son do virtual school and the patience we got to have with them, ???? I’ve realised the value of teachers even more. They deserve all the appreciation and love we can possibly give them. Reach out to a teacher, wish them, and make them feel special today ❤️ Happy Teacher’s Day to every teacher out there, who is working on shaping minds for a better future every day. Thank you ???????? #HappyTeachersDay #Teachers #guru #gratitude #happiness #love
