Actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra shared a picture of herself with her Physics teacher, Radha Miss. She wrote: “How does one thank a person who has helped shape their life? Words truly can never do justice to express gratitude for the role teachers play in our lives. But, I will still want to take this opportunity and thank all my gurus, luckily have a photo with one of them, when I visited my school recently, and she was still there. My favourite Physics teacher (didn’t like the subject as much as I liked her ) Radha Miss, always had this joie de vivre, positive energy and a huge smile when she entered the class… Nothing had changed. Maybe, I learnt to smile like that from her. She never held back her happiness ❤️😄 In this lockdown especially seeing my son do virtual school and the patience we got to have with them, 😅 I’ve realised the value of teachers even more.  They deserve all the appreciation and love we can possibly give them. Reach out to a teacher, wish them, and make them feel special today ❤️ Happy Teacher’s Day to every teacher out there, who is working on shaping minds for a better future every day.
Thank you” (sic)

When the world is celebrating Teacher’s Day how can I forget the teacher who first taught me how to pick myself up after a fall and remain grounded at the same time. . Over the years, you have taught us to be self-reliant and pushed me to work hard – taught us to be a humble and honest human being. Through your example, I learned to persevere and endure because you said I should never stop trying. It is this resilience that got you from selling saris in Kolkata on the streets to unfurling a cinematic dream – you teach by example, Pa. . I know now, why you pushed me to dream because, in your words – the world can take everything away from me but not my dreams. . Thank you, for being the first teacher in my life. I love you both to the moon and back! 🤗❤️ #HappyTeachersDay
