Happy Teachers Day 2018: History of this day & Importance of Teacher in our life: The Indian culture was always respectful of the “Teacher & Student” relationship. I used “was” because nowadays things aren’t looking that strong like they should be. I am not bragging about anything bad, but we all know that this strict and caring relationship is changed a lot. Our teachers became the prime enemy of students (in their eyes, at least) and the students became the business or job thing for the teachers, and for this situation I don’t blame them both, I think the definition of institution is changed and now they are not a place of knowledge, but they are just like a business or a company.
