In this day we express our gratitude to our gurus for their dedication and selflessness in nurturing a child. On Guru Purnima, we celebrate the special bond between students and teachers. As we know, teachers have the greatest influence on students’ lives. They not only transfer knowledge and teach co-curricular and extracurricular abilities, but they also help kids develop the morals and life skills that help them deal with the outside world.
