We have a rich legacy of ancient Guru-Shishya bonding. Since ages our country has produced the greatest teachers of unimpeachable integrity who were not just intellectual giants but also provided moral and intellectual leadership of a rare quality to our country. They were widely loved and respected as their teaching was infused with a high degree of idealism, passion and selfless service. Many of them did not limit themselves to just imparting knowledge but also shape the values and ideals of modern India by leaving a deep imprint on our society.
As ever, we continue to believe in the power of education and morality in arousing the national consciousness. It is our bounden duty to provide an integrated education to the youth of India, that can produce students who will not only be intellectually equal to the best of their fellow students in other parts of the world, but will also live a noble life, love their country and be loyal and sensitive to the very community and society they represent.
The National Teachers' Congress (WC) has been conceptualised with an objective to inspire teachers of under-graduate and post-graduate colleges from across the nation. Through extensive deliberations and dialogues of 3 days, we aim to ignite the spirit of up to 8,000 teachers every year so that they continue to look beyond the commercial temptations for creating deeper and wider impact on the society through this noble profession.
Great teachers help to create great minds. India has a long tradition of knowledge creation and highlighting cultural, humanitarian values. Teachers have always played crucial role in motivating students to contribute to shaping the ideals of the nation and to contribute to its development. India also has a long and rich tradition of bonding between teacher and disciple. It is the innate nature of our country to churn out one success story after other of the Guru Shishya Parampara from all walks and streams of life. The National Teachers' Congress contribute in cultivating this tradition by inspiring teachers and great disciples by offering exchange of ideas and thoughts.
The Congress will provide a common platform for the teachers to understand the national issues and create awareness, which would prove beneficial to the country. The invited speakers will be the experts from socio-economic field, art, music, history, literature, science & technology and sports.
In the first phase, we will be inviting nominations largely from the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, before expanding our canvas on a national scale from the next year.
