How could I let 5th September slip by without mentioning Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the second president of India. The greatest of all teachers was born on this very day and thus we remember this day as ‘Teachers’ Day’. We usually forget these days which were made for a reason, for remembering our great heroes of the past. Day by day, the value of these "named days" (but for crap rose days, petal days etc.), thus the respect for our great leaders is diminishing. I wish the Indian blogosphere, which writes about everything under the sun, also writes about these great men once in a while and specifically on the day, which is named after the leaders of the yore. I bet there will be many who would have already thought of this. More about Dr. Radhakrishnan can be read here, and also hear his take on dharma. Just one line says what he preached about dharma – “Dharma is paropkara, adharma is parapeeda”.
