The Importance of Teachers in Our Life
In our culture, teachers enjoy the same status as parents and gods. It is not surprising, though. The teacher is the person who leads us from ignorance to knowledge. They shape our lives and future. They help us to distinguish right from wrong. They show us the right path that leads us to success and happiness.
There would be utter chaos and confusion if there were no teachers. Man, after all, is an animal. It is the teacher who transforms that animal into a responsible and socially committed person. If there were no teachers, would human beings have achieved the progress they made? The answer is an emphatic No. If there were no teachers, we would still be behaving like animals with no sense of right and wrong.
Teachers enter our lives during our formative years. The values and the knowledge that we gain from them, therefore, remain imprinted on our mind. While our parents nurture us physically and emotionally, our teachers nourish us intellectually. They enable us to realize our true calling in life. Without them it is impossible to achieve success in life. We owe them all that we achieve in life. The sooner we realize this, the better.
