New Delhi: Around 80 students of classes XI and XII of Delhi’s Dr Rajendra Prasad Sarvodaya Vidyalaya listened intently as President Pranab Mukherjee, their special teacher on the occasion of Teachers’ Day, delivered a lecture.
The President took an hour-long lesson at the school which is located within the compounds of the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Mukherjee who used to be a college teacher before joining politics, gave a lesson to students on the history of Indian politics. With an emphasis on our political history and its development since independence, he also talked about the rising menace of terrorism in the country as well as across the globe.
Mukherjee, a Master’s degree holder in history, political science and law, had also talked about the relationship between ‘guru-shishya’ (teacher-pupil) in his Independence Day address to the nation last month.
In a series of messages on Twitter earlier today, Mukherjee said a sound education system is the bedrock of an enlightened society.
