Happy Teacher’s Day

” Teachers are like the candles, which consume themselves to brighten the lives of others. ”

Amrapali Group of Institutes wishes the entire Teaching Community a very Happy Teacher’s Day.

In India, 5th September is celebrated as Teacher’s Day as a mark of tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society. 5th September is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education, and was a well-known diplomat, scholar, the President of India and above all, a teacher. When some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, he said, ” Instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege, if 5th September is observed as Teachers day”. From then onwards, the 5th of September has been observed as Teachers Day, in India. In the year 1965, some of the prominent students of Late Dr S. Radhakrishnan organised a gathering to pay obeisance to that Great Teacher of repute. In his speech during that gathering, Dr Radhakrishnan expressed his deep reservation regarding his birth anniversary celebration, and emphasised that his birth anniversary should be celebrated as ‘Teacher’s Day’, by paying homage to other Great Teachers of India and Bangladesh.

Since the year 1967, 5th September is celebrated as Teacher’s Day till date. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was one of his closest friends throughout, had many great things to say about Dr. Radhakrishnan :

“He has served his country in many capacities. But above all, he is a great teacher from whom all of us have learnt much and will continue to learn. It is India’s peculiar privilege to have a great philosopher, a great educationist and a great humanist as her President. That in itself shows the kind of men we honour and respect. “

Top 5 Reasons to Choose Engineering as a Career

Albert Einstein said,

“ Scientists investigate that which already is, Engineers create that which    has never been ”.

Engineering has become the most sought after career in modern times. It is challenging and exciting. Engineers solve daily life problems incorporating the models provided by Science combined with their innovative thinking and create new designs that benefit humanity.

It is “Science” to describe Mechanics, but it is “Engineering” to build a locomotive. Thus, Science and Engineering go hand in hand.

We may see many people around us educated in Engineering skills and using them in their jobs, but only a few of them are actually called “Engineers”. A career in Engineering involves a lifetime of continuous and deep learning to adapt to the changes in society and the natural world. It is a very worthwhile profession and can be incredibly satisfying. Here are some reasons to study Engineering  guaranteed to boost your motivation :

1. You get respect : Do not forget the prestige that comes with studying Engineering. Non-engineers will be like “WOW” when they hear that you are an Engineer. It requires immense toil and hardwork to qualify as an Engineer.

2. You are assured of professional success : You develop logical thinking and critical analysis skills. Objectivity rules your mind and emotions are resided away. All of these skills are greatly needed in the professional world, in any field. So, Engineers tend to do better no matter which sector they choose, and they also tend to make good managers. As an outcome Engineering is the most common undergraduate degree among Fortune 500 CEOs.

3. It gives you courage to face problems : You may face even tougher problems than the ones faced during your studies. But by the time you graduate, you will have acquired the skills and the confidence to deal with all kinds of problems. You will know exactly how to handle it. All problems will seem surmountable. You start seeing them as challenges and  opportunities to grow.

4. It makes you financially secure : There are people who long for a lavish and luxurious lifestyle. Engineering is the career which caters to all such dreams. The majority of surveys and reports list Engineering as one of the top-paid degree programs. The most popular and profitable engineering disciplines are Chemical, Computer, Electrical, Nuclear and Petroleum Engineering.

5. You contribute to change the world : Engineers positively contribute something new to the society. It feels great when someone praises  a newly constructed project and you say, “I built it.” It is the pride of an Engineer when talking about his/her contribution in creating something new, even if it is as simple as a design for a room or a “like” button on a website.
