On behalf of all the students, I wish our wonderful teachers 'A Happy Teacher's Day'.

Honorable Principal (Headmaster / Headmistress), esteemed teachers and my beloved friends

On this special day that is dedicated to teachers, I feel honored to speak few words of appreciation for them and our gratitude towards them for their selfless services. We celebrate Teacher's Day on Sept 5 to mark the birth anniversary of Late Dr.Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was the 2nd President of the Independent India. He was a great teacher and an outstanding scholar who became the 1st Vice President of Independent India.

Since ancient times, teacher or guru is considered as equal to God as it is the teacher who dedicates itself in molding the lives of its shishyas i.e disciples. In the olden days, shishyas were sent to gurukul which is near equivalent to the present day boarding / residential schools. The disciples used to spend much of their time in the gurukul and gaining knowledge and other required skills.

In the present society, teacher lays foundation for creating the future citizens of our country. We spend much of our time in the school in association with our teachers. Our lives are much influenced by the teachers who not only teach us but facilitate us in our learning process. A teacher is our best friend, an efficient mentor to us who guides us the right path.

Let's pay our tributes to the teachers for their valuable contributions to the society who impart knowledge, build up the character and shape the career of the students with their selfless efforts. We cannot even count the contributions of our teachers who make our lives. They inspire us, guide us, correct us, mould us, motivate us, love us, encourage us and their contributions cannot be described by words. They are immeasurable. In fact they are the nation builders.

I bow to Thee in reverence O Teachers! for your valuable contributions in making the society.

The greatness of a teacher is well described in Sant Kabir's Doha:

Guru Govind dono khade kaake lagai paayen
Balihaare Guru aapne, Govind diyo batai

It is the teacher who shows the path to reach God-realization. The greatness of a teacher is explained in simple words in the couplet (doha).

Finally, I would like to conclude my speech with the words: a teacher plants the seeds of knowledge in the students that grows into fruitful tree.

Thank you teachers for your valuable services. And thank you all for giving me this wonderful opportunity.

Acharya Gurudevo Bhava!

Lyrics and meaning of Brahmamokkate Parabrahmamokkate

This Keertana is one of the best and most popular compositions of Saint Annamayya in which he describes the universal truth of oneness and omnipresence of God in all the creatures alike. The Keertana is sung in Bouli / Mayamalava Goula Ragam.

Traditional Telugu Wedding

"Dharmecha, ardhecha, kamecha, nati charitavyeti, data vadet, nati charatavya - Nati Charami"
"Mangalyam tantunanena mama jeevana hetuna, kanthe badhnami subhage tvam jeeva sarada satam"


These are the two most important chanting in Indian Hindu weddings.

Wedding (Vivah / Vivaham in Sanskrit), is a highly sacred event in Hindu culture. It is a life long commitment between a man and a woman. Vivaham is one of the 16 samskaras. Brahmacharya (youth) of a man ends with marriage and his Grihastasramam (family life) begins.

Hindu weddings involve various ceremonial / procedural events which are almost similar in all regions with slight variations. The events take place in the form of prayers, invocations and vows that are recited in Sanskrit. The prayers are power-packed with in-depth meaning and describe the strong bondage between husband and wife who are united in the presence of Panch Bhoota i.e the five elements of Earth, in a ritualistic manner.

Importance Of Margasira Masam

Margasira Masam is the 9th month in the Hindu calendar. The month got its name after Mrigasira Nakshatra or star when coincides with the full moon day of the month. The month is also known by the name Agrahayana which is considered as the month of equinox. The meaning of Agra is elder and that of ayana is transition / travel.

In the mid of the auspicious month of Margasira, the Sun transits from Vrischika Rasi (zodiac sign of Scorpio) to Dhanur Rasi (zodiac sign of Sagittarius).

The month also marks the beginning of Hemanta Ritu or the beginning of winter season in the tropical lands and mostly Dhanur Masam starts from December 16 every year. During Dhanur Masam, the women in some regions of Andhra Pradesh draw dwaram mug…
