#TeachersDay Take by Uttam Ghosh – ‘Is this a fish market?’

Teacher’s Day Spl: ‘Is this a fish market?’


On Teacher’s Day,‘s Uttam Ghosh takes us back in time.

A teacher is strict, loving and caring and puts the best interest of students above everything else.

Having said that, teachers can also sometimes be mean, rude and witty depending on how good or bad the students are.

Whether we like or loathe them, these mentors and academic coaches play an incredible part in a student’s life.

September 5 is celebrated as Teachers Day.

In tribute to all those teachers who have left a mark (pun intended), presenting some of the gems our teachers said.

IMAGE: ‘Empty head’. ‘Do you have any brains at all?’ How often has your Math and English teacher said this to you?

IMAGE: ‘Do I look like a fool/clown to you?’ Every time you bluff or do something stupid, you get to hear this.

IMAGE: Why do you come to school? To warm the benches? To lay eggs?

    Remembering teachers is timely since the present government is trying every possible effort to reduce teachers, cut down their salaries, detain them on grounds of sedition. There is a saying in Telugu on teachers ‘ batakaleni badipantulu ‘ ( meaning a school teacher who cannot live) which is becoming a reality. Hence this day, the students must firmly resolve to save teachers and teaching profession by expressing solidarity with their struggles.
