On Teacher's Day, Rediff.com's Uttam Ghosh takes us back in time.
A teacher is strict, loving and caring and puts the best interest of students above everything else.
Having said that, teachers can also sometimes be mean, rude and witty depending on how good or bad the students are.
Whether we like or loathe them, these mentors and academic coaches play an incredible part in a student's life.
September 5 is celebrated as Teachers Day.
In tribute to all those teachers who have left a mark (pun intended), presenting some of the gems our teachers said.
