occasion of Teachers' Day today
9th Mile, Ri Bhoi, 5th September 2019:
Respect for diversity, tolerance and sensitivity
are the core values of individuals which are to
be inculcated by the teachers because human
values and society along with perfection within
curriculum go a long way to build great
institutions. This was stated by Dr Mridul
Hazarika, former Vice Chancellor of the Gauhati
University after receiving the “Outstanding
Academic Leadership Award” from Mahbubul Hoque,
Chancellor of the University of Science &
Technology-Meghalaya (USTM) today on the
occasion of the birth anniversary of Dr.
Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. The award was bestowed
to Dr Hazarika in appreciation of his exemplary
contribution to academics and research. Teachers
from all the departments of USTM and RIST were
felicitated today at a glorious function held at
the Central Auditorium of USTM on the occasion
of Teachers’ Day.
Addressing a huge gathering of academia, Dr
Mridul Hazarika said, “Teaching and Learning is
a never ending process. The challenge here is to
mould individuals by developing needed skills
and values thus confronting the challenges of
building institution, society and the nation”.
“Developing good habit will contribute to
development of good character and at the present
age of technology, people must know how to
combine technology and emotion to become a
better human being”, he added.
Earlier, in his welcome address, USTM Chancellor
M. Hoque said that teachers are the architect of
society, they are the real transformer. “The
best teacher is who inspires, encourages,
motivates and gives vision to students. If a
good teacher leaves my institution, I feel as if
a pillar of the building is gone”, he said.
Teachers play a great role in shaping young
minds thus contributing to the values of the
society they serve.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr PK Goswami, Vice
Chancellor, USTM said that teachers are the
backbone of the society and their role in
shaping the lives of children and the young
generation matters a lot. A teacher’s role is
highly demanding in the society, he added.
