The supremely talented and famous Indian mathematician and the founder of well-known tutorial programme Super 30, Anand Kumar has asserted that there is ‘no substitute’ for teachers and there is a burgeoning need to develop an atmosphere thorough which a better teacher student relationship could be formed.
Anand Kumar is the founder of the famous Super 30 tutorial programme that was initiated by him in Patna, Bihar in 2002 for giving quality education to students who are the future of the nation. While speaking at the Stanford University in an event that was organized by Stanford India Association, Anand Kumar said that there is a need to develop more and more teachers so that the light of education could be spread to all corners of the world.
October 5 is celebrated as the ‘World Teachers’ Day’ and the Stanford University organized an event to celebrate teachers and their achievements who spread their light of knowledge to countless millions. Anand Kumar said at the event that “there is no substitute for teachers, no matter which part of the globe we go because the first and foremost need for any generation is knowledge and it comes through teachers only.”
Adding to his speech Kumar added, “Teachers day should help create an atmosphere in which teachers get the respect and recognition they deserve to draw the best from the society to this pious profession”. The new and young breed of people is keeping themselves away from teaching profession and there is a steep need of good teachers in the society to breed the better tomorrow.
