“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” ~ Pericles
Learning is a continuous process and realizing the great responsibility; teachers are oriented by eminent personalities on various topics of interest off and on. One such program was organized on 8 September 2014 to celebrate Teachers’ day. Dr. L. S. Ganesh Professor & Former Dean (Students), IIT Madras addressed the teachers. He began by discussing the role of a teacher in this modern era. His profound knowledge was very obvious in the way he presented the session. He stated that nobody can remain indifferent to the upsurge of xenophobia and violence in the world. Overcoming prejudice, combating stereotypes and obstructing the emergence of intolerance are not going to be easy tasks; they are, however, areas for educational action. He added that every teacher ought to rise above difficulties, struggling for fulfillment. There were lots of crackles with wit which were worth admiration. He concluded the session with the reminiscence of his childhood in a humorous note.
This session awakened the teachers to recognize potential issues and identify ways to work with demanding professional challenges.
