At the event, P Balaji, Chief Regulatory & Corporate Affairs Officer, VIL and Director,
Vodafone Foundation said, “Teachers Day marks an occasion to celebrate knowledge and to
honor our teachers for their contribution as a catalyst in building our nation. We at Vodafone
Idea Foundation believe that learning is a vital part of every person’s journey to their goals.
Through our various initiatives such as Jigyasa, Gurushala and Teachers & Students
Scholarship Programm, we emphasize on the learning processes to promote social good and
positively impact people’s lives so they can secure a better and brighter future for themselves
and the nation.”
Mr. Sarvendra Vikram Bahadur Singh, Director SCERT and Basic Education, U.P said
“Students often learn better from teachers, who they admire and respect. If you are a good
teacher, and your students love you, invariably, they will also well learn from you. We need to
build a conducive ecosystem for them, so that they can be successful. It’s our duty to equip
them with the right solutions.”
Dr Devang Vipin Khakhar, Former Director, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai said
“With time, more and more technology will come into our teaching practices, which will help
teachers reach out to more students. These technologies will also provide a way for students to
do self-learning, which will invariably create a deeper understanding of the subject.”
