SRINAGAR: Governor N.N. Vohra has greeted people and particularly the teaching fraternity on the occasion of Teachers’ Day.
In his message, the Governor observed that Teachers’ Day is a very special occasion for recognizing and paying tribute to the vital role played by teachers and honoring eminent teachers for their contributions in varied fields of learning and research.

Recalling Dr. Radhakrishnan’s statement that “teachers should be the best minds in the country” Governor observed that they are a very important element of the society and deserve high respect for their instructing and grooming the upcoming generations.
Governor called upon the entire fraternity of teachers to put in their best efforts for imparting quality education to the youth and, besides, also encourage their balanced development.
