New Delhi:27/8/17: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged the nation to begin the campaign of ‘teach to transform, educate to empower and learn to lead’ on the occasion of Teachers Day.
Modi remembered the country’s second President S. Radhakrishnan — after whom Teachers’ Day is celebrated — and exhorted teachers to undertake teaching on a mission level to transform and empower. “This year, when we celebrate Teachers Day, can we take an oath of beginning a campaign ‘teach to transform, educate to empower and learn to lead’,” said Modi in his 35th edition of the “Mann Ki Baat” radio programme.”He (Radhakrishnan) was the President but all through his life, he saw himself as a teacher. He preferred to live a teacher’s life. He was committed to being a teacher. He was a scholar, a diplomat, the President of India and yet, quintessentially, a teacher. I salute
