Happy Teacher’s Day! We wish to express our gratitude to everyone on the journey to share their learnings and teachings with the greater world – Here’s to all the teachers, parents, children, leaders and more! And most importantly, we wish to express our deepest gratitude to the most generous teacher – Nature!

We believe one of the best ways to mark Teachers’ Day is to celebrate Nature, as it is the best teacher we have, as opined Rajendra Singh, a well-known water conservationist from Alwar district, Rajasthan.

English card William Shakespeare in his play, ’As you like it’, had very poetically said, 'tongues in trees, books in the brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.’ Everything in nature is by intent perfect in its existence and persistence.

Sun teaches us to shine and give light to the world, Rivers give us the message to determinedly move on towards the goal, overcoming all obstacles. Similarly, Trees teach us to give everything to others, Flowers teach us to spread the aroma of our good deeds. Various natural species of organisms demonstrate how-to live-in harmony and have peaceful co-existence.

There is music everywhere in natural environments around us, we must have receptive ears, sensitivity and alertness to notice it. Even something simple like Chirping of birds in nature helps embrace peace and serenity among humans.

Embracing nature as part of everyday life helps us instill the same values in ourselves and our children - to understand, to respect and to appreciate all aspects of life.

Nature teaches us, we just have to pay Attention, Observe, Reflect, Learn from, and Respect.
