Teachers Day 2017: Teachers have played a very important and crucial part during the formative phases of our lives. Apart from imparting knowledge and education our teachers have also at many times lent us a sympathetic and kind ear irrespective of the fact whether it was an academic problem or a personal problem. All of us have at one occasion or the other have reminisced about our school or our teachers, but all of us do happen to think about our teachers on September 5, Teachers’ Day. The day is celebrated on the birth anniversary of India’s first Vice President and second President Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was an academician who treasured education. All of us thank our teachers in our own way, but thankfully a few people in Bollywood have penned down songs on our behalf for our teachers. We present to you a list of songs that you must include in your teacher’s Day playlist:

1) Masterji Ki Aa Gayi Chitthi
The first song on our list is from a 1977 movie titled Kitab. The song is titled Masterji Ki Aa Gayi Chitthi. In the video of the song, you can see child actor Master Raju singing a song for the entire class about the importance of education. The song is sung by Shivangi Kolhapure. The song was written and directed by Gulzar.

The second song on our list is from the Aamir Khan’s Taare Zamin Par. The film is based on the life of an 8-year-old child suffering from dyslexia played by actor Darsheel Safary.
