I actually shared one Teacher’s Day with her back in 1983, when I worked with her in her school as a temporary teacher as one of her colleagues had to take three months off to prepare for, and write a series of exams. I was class teacher for the Upper KinderGarten class. What sweet kids! I wish I had had a camera those days! Those wonderful memories are all in my head to share with my Vidur, who loves storytime.
My Mom and I went to the same school – I studied at the same school as she did. Her teacher was my class teacher in Std. IV. This wonderful teacher, Mrs.Kumud, was also my Godmother and guardian later in life
Years later, after I got a job and life went on, I would still be eager to listen to school stories. Mom was quite the star at all her school events, and the natural choice as the compere. She had a glorious teaching career. Even after she had that terrible fall at school in 1995 she insisted on starting spoken English classes at home.
Today, I remember my Mom with love, respect and admiration. Because she is the best teacher in the whole world. Love you, Mom!

From Wikipedia: About Teacher’s Day in India
“It is the birthday [5 September 1888 ],of the second President of India, academic philosopher Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. It is considered a “celebration” day, where teachers and students report to school as usual but the usual activities and classes are replaced by activities of celebration, thanks and remembrance. At some schools on this day, the responsibility of teaching is taken up by the senior students to show appreciation for their teachers.”
