As another year draws in our journey into future, I am vastly reassured by the success in the form of enormous leap taking place in the field of education. Success is not the absence of failure but it is the ultimate attainment of objectives. I believe that at KDB we have succeeded in bringing out a perfect blend of academic upliftment along with technology based learning.
Technology has an impact on the role of the teacher. In ancients times, a student went to his guru's ashram and received all the education he required for the rest of his life. For him the knowledge of one guru was adequate for his entire career.
Today a typical student has to gather knowledge from hundreds of sources. In the age of internet, vast amount of knowledge is available on the websites. Learning has become easier. A person interested in a subject can get great amount of knowledge from the website without a teacher but this does not mean that the importance of teacher has diminished by any degree but has rather become indispensable and more challenging. Today the real role of teachers is to create Eklavyas. An era of Eklavyas has started. Those teachers who can arouse the interest of his student in particular subject will create in him a thirst for knowledge which he will try and satisfy in every way. It is the inspiration that student derives from the teacher that makes him work hard and walk an extra mile to realize his teacher's and then his own dream.
I salute the teachers who are learned, inspiring, devoted, creative, courageous and compassionate because they have the ability to lead their mentees and catalyze a favourable change in them.
