      Giving awards to teachers in recognition of their services rendered for the noble cause acts as an incentive to work with vigor and boosts their morale. It will encourage them to work with enhanced capacity towards nation building.

      Great! Students organizing the event. This will make them good leaders in the future. We generally mistake leaders relating political class. But leaders are required in every sphere of life, be it family, society, work place or business.

      Dear Sir,
      Thank you very much for honoring the Gurus and making the event such a grand success. I do not know how the teachers are selected for award in Delhi but I can talk about Karnataka where I stay. The teacher himself/herself has to apply for award followed by a lot of lobbying . As a result most deserving teachers stay away as they consider it insult to apply for any award. The Government should set up a committee and they themselves should short list the deserving teachers. Any common man will agree with this. The teachers who are expert in “juggad” get the award. I believe you must have a different way of selecting teachers for state award.
