KORBA (Chhattisgarh): Teachers possess the ability to destroy the darkness of ignorance and enlighten lives. Ignorance is the first step to slavery. We should demolish the walls of caste, creed, language and regionalism to make a united nation.
Vikas Sharma, CEO & Director, BALCO said at the Teachers’ Day Celebration Ceremony at Chandrodaya Gyan Mandir School, Parsabatha. The ceremony was organised under the Project Connect by the CSR department of BALCO.
Sharma wished everyone on Teachers’ Day and quoted the preachings of Guru Nanak Dev and Saint Kabir that Teachers are the most charitable of all, as they provide self-knowledge to people. They pass on their enlightenment to their students. Teachers help us experience the divine.
He appreciated the Project run under the leadership of BALCO Aluminium Business Head, Deepak Prasad said that Project Connect is an extremely important step in the initiative of spreading knowledge.
