Teacher’s Day Quotes

Pratibha Ranta who plays the character of Chahat in Zee TV’s Qurbaan Hua mentioned, “Teacher's day has been one of the most exciting days for me back in school and college. Back in those days, I usually looked forward to celebrating this day mainly because of the performances I got to deliver on the stage. Besides that, I feel it has always been a really important and meaningful day to me. Our teachers have a huge contribution in making us the person we are today. We meet people who become our teachers, and it is mandatory for us to thank them and be grateful for their presence in life.”


Karan Jotwani who plays the character of Neel in Zee TV’s Qurbaan Hua mentioned, “Speaking of teachers, I’ll have to mention my mother, who is our first and most important teacher in life. By profession too, my mother was a teacher and I remember we used to rob her of all the chocolates that she used to get back home on Teacher’s Day. This is one of the fondest memories I have from that time. I’m also extremely grateful to all my teachers for teaching me and making me academically sound. So far in my acting career, the creative producer of my last show has been my mentor and guiding star in the industry. She’s a rock-solid support system and been a constant through all my happy and sad phases as well as during times when I faced failure. I would say she has literally moulded me into the actor I am today, and I feel truly blessed to have her as a guiding factor in the industry.


Himesh Reshammiya who is a judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs shared, “I stepped into the world of music with the help of my father, Vipin Reshammiya who is the first person to introduce electronic instruments in India and is a great musician as well. From learning to approach music as a singer and a composer to understanding the various technicalities of modern and Indian tunes, he has been the real Guru and teacher in my life. Right from an early age he always taught me that music means abiding by certain rules, which can be adapted to the modern times provided one understands and has complete knowledge about it. When I began composing at the age of 15 years, I never really understood the significance of his words but while composing different songs before entering into music direction, I began realizing why he was always very strict with me on this particular thought. Infact, when I did compose and sing the song, Aashiq Banaya Aapne, which also won me my first award, I would say that it was his words that made all the difference.”


Javed Ali who is a judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs shared, “I’m a big fan and devotee of my Guruji Ustab Gulab Ali Khan Sahaab. I will never forget the day when I started my Taleem under him and was left awestruck, gazing at him in revere. Every little technique and skill that I know about music is what I have learnt from my Guruji. He taught me that every song has its own soul and one needs to figure the voice modulation techniques to bring about the essence of the song. I also vividly remember him scolding me every time I faltered during Riyaaz and my voice went out of line. He used to be extremely upset with me but his scolding became the sole reason behind my improvement. The biggest reward that I received as a student was my Guruji patting me on my back as a token of appreciation which thereafter gave me the courage and motivation to advance my career in music.”


Adnan Khan who plays the character of Kabir in Ishq Subhan Allah said, “I think for me, Om Prakash Sir has played a very important role as a teacher in my life. I say this with utmost gratitude and that is because I learnt from him that if I don’t put in my 100%, nobody can help me become better. He taught me the technique of method acting and took in only those who he believed were capable of putting in immense hard work. At that time, I certainly wasn’t the brightest, and though I kept making mistakes, I did put in a lot of effort and that helped me stand out. He has played a huge role in my life because he made me realise the magic of my art in just 15 classes and helped me fall in love with acting even more than before.”

Urvashi Upadhyay who plays the character of Beghum Noorjahan in Ishq Subhan Allah said, “Before stepping my foot into the television industry, I used to be a teacher, and it always felt nice to hold a place where kids show love and respect towards you. As a teacher, I used to dramatize my classes to a certain extent so that my students could have fun while learning and I would also get the chance to practice my art. Currently, I have two kids and with the pandemic in place I started teaching them  social skills and some household extra curriculars like cooking and baking along with other activities. Being a teacher with a B.Ed degree, I also began home schooling them and  I hope as a mom and a teacher, I have managed to teach my kids the things they’d need in life.”


Abhishek Kapur who plays the role of Sameer Luthra in Kundali Bhagya shared, “Back in school I was a naughty child who’d take up dares without realising the consequences of it on other people. I remember once, as a part of a dare I stuck a chewing gum on a classmate’s hair who later had to chop off that portion, and I now realise that it was quite a terrible thing to do. I was gravely punished for my actions and thereafter I learnt to never repeat such mistakes again. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had the opportunity to learn from several teachers and the  one thing that all my teachers taught me, be it my cricket coach from school, or my mentor at the acting academy is that to stay humble and grounded, no matter how successful you become. One should always be willing to learn and never be a know-it-all. And that no matter how tough life gets, always strive to fight and emerge out victorious. These are some of the most valuable learnings I received from my teachers.”


Shweta Mahadik who plays the role of Durga Jindal in Guddan… Tumse Na Ho Payega revealed, “While on a normal day my son was very regular at school, post the pandemic crisis and the lockdown, I had to pull up my sleeves and double up as a mother and a teacher. Taking charge of your child’s studies is a huge responsibility as it is almost like going back to school and re-learning everything. While it indeed was tough and came with its own set of challenges, eventually I got a hang of it and got to spend some quality time with my son too. Infact, I thought of teaching him some skills beyond the school curriculum that would l help him adapt socially in life. We tried our hands at painting, dancing, writing and other little skills like table manners and even learning to respect people especially women.  While I may have been a teacher to my son, during the lockdown, I was the one who learnt an immense lot from my son, on the contrary.”


Savi Thakur who plays the role of Agastya Birla in Guddan… Tumse Na Ho Payega revealed, “For me personally, my chemistry teacher played a crucial role in making me into what I am today. He has always motivated me in life and whenever I get to speak to him, he brings an abundance of positivity and gives me the strength to keep going forward. I remember at school, as kids we used to dress up as the teachers and present a skit for them. I was quite enthusiastic about sports and hence would dress up as our sports teacher. While back as kids we mostly feared our teachers, much later we have come to realize the value of some of the most important lessons that they taught us in life. I wish everyone a very Happy Teacher’s Day.”


Kanika Mann who plays the role of Guddan Jindal in Guddan… Tumse Na Ho Payega revealed, “I feel every individual we meet has an impact on our lives and they teach us something or the other. While as a child my parents were extremely cautious of my academic performance, I was someone with zero patience and would often make silly mistakes. I remember one of my teachers Neetu Ma’am gently hit me for making a silly mistake, and that eventually helped me realise where I was going wrong and led to an improvement in my performance academically. However, I was quite a studious and nerdy person and hence always stayed in the good books of my teachers. Back then, I had a tendency of befriending all my teachers which worked well in my favour. I am really glad that I am still in touch with all my teachers from high school and university and for that extremely thankful to social media. I hope I am able to connect with my teachers on Teacher’s Day this year. I wish everyone a very Happy Teacher’s Day”

Manit Joura who plays the role of Rishabh Luthra in Kundali Bhagya said, “Back in school days, I remember on this day we used to begin school by 8:05am and would write ‘Happy Teacher’s Day’ on the board and decorate the words neatly before our teacher entered the room. After each teacher’s lecture we would erase the name and write the next teacher’s name, only to make them feel really special. I believe that this day is dedicated to all those people who became teachers and inspired me in some way or the other. Any human being, animal or even a creature as small as an ant can really teach us a lot. I have pet dog and a horse as well and the unconditional affection that they shower upon us honestly teaches me a lot about love. I would just like to urge everyone to be receptive and attentive anything that could teach us and be a teacher. Happy Teacher’s Day to everyone.”
