Nepal Celebrates National Teacher Day
Earlier this week, Nepal celebrated Guru Purnima, which is the equivalent of Teacher’s Day. Guru is the Sanksrit word for teacher, and this tradition of giving thanks to your teacher goes back many centuries. This day is marked by the students conducting some ritual ceremonies and also through performances and speeches. We wanted to share some of the pictures of an event that was held at Shikharapur School to celebrate Guru Purnima because without great teachers, it is very difficult to empower young minds.
