Studies Related to Attitude of Teachers towards Teaching Profession | Original Article

Teacher was compared to a God and treated as a combination of the Trimurty (Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar) as well as the supreme one i.e., “Guru Brahma, Guru Bishnu, Gurudeb Maheswar, Guru Sakhat Paramabrahma Tasmeisri Gurabe Namah”. According to the Indian culture a child receives his first physical birth from the parents and the second birth of the hands of the teacher.
