Teachers’ day celebration

Teachers’ Day

“ The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes,
and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.”

 

~ Edward Bulwer-Lytton

In India 5th September is celebrated as Teaches’ 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. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education, and was the well-known diplomat, scholar, President of India and above all a Teacher.

When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the President of India in 1962, he was approached by some of his students and friends and requested him to allow them to celebrate 5th September, his “Birthday”. In reply, Dr.Radhakrishnan said, “Instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege  if September 5 is observed as Teachers’ Day”. The Read the rest of this entry

“Creation is not repetition, or correspondence in every particular between the object and its artistic presentation. The world of reality is all around us. When I look at this phenomenon with my artist’s eye, things are revealed in a different light which I try and recapture in my picture – call them realistic or not. There is a world of dreams and fantasies which exists only in a man’s imagination. If I can but depict this in my pictures I can beat the Creator at His own game.”

— Rabindranath Tagore

CHEMICAL CONTAMINATION
OF LAKES AND STREAMS

One way to test for contamination in water from lakes, rivers and streams is with a bioassay.

A bioassay uses a living organism–usually a plant or a bacteria–as a test agent for the presence or concentration of a chemical compound or a disease. The idea is to choose a test agent that is very sensitive to the condition you are testing.

Have you ever read about how miners took canaries down into mines to act as early warnings of gas leaks? Because canaries are more sensitive to gas than people, the birds reacted to very small amounts of gas and gave miners a chance to escape. You could say canaries were a bioassay for underground gas.
