Q. Write a speech on Teacher’s Day.

Speech on Teacher’s Day,

5th September.

  Good morning to one and all and my greetings to all my respected teachers. Honourable chairperson, the Principal of our college, Mr./Mrs ……….., respected teachers and my dear friends. Today is an auspicious occasion to honour and acknowledge the contributions and hard work of teachers who mould the students into the future citizens. Guru Pournima is also celebrated to express our gratitude towards our Gurus.

     Friends! Can you tell why 5th September is celebrated as Teacher’s Day? Yes, it is celebrated throughout the country since the year 1962 on the birth anniversary of Dr.Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, the second President of free India. He was born on 5th September 1888 at Tiruttani, in Tamil Nadu State. He was a great philosopher, educationist and a teacher by profession. When he became the second President of India, few of his students requested him to let them to celebrate his birthday on 5th September. On this request, he asked them to celebrate his birthday as Teacher’s Day and not just as birthday. Ever since this day is celebrated as Teacher’s Day every year.

      Our education begins at home. Mother is our prime teacher. As we grow and meet different people, we learn many things from them. Everyone around us teaches us something. Experiences and mistakes are also our great teachers.

     In olden times, there was Gurukul System of teaching where the students left their homes to stay with the sages in the forest for years. It was called Bramhacharyashram(one of the four ashrams ) After completing the training, the students returned homes. Those sages were worshipped and honoured by the students and their parents like God. Since then a teacher is placed next to God. That’s why it is said,

Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishnu,

Gurur Dev, Maheshwara.

Gurur Sakshat, Parbramha.

Tasmai Sri Guruve Namaha.

      It means Guru is the Lord himself.Gurus/ teachers are next to God.So,Gurus are worshipped on Guru Pournima.

    Teachers are our second parents because they take care of us as parents. They show us right path as the beacon light. They are like candles who spend their whole life in giving light to the students. They are always with us whenever we are in trouble whether it is academic or personal. They are the nation builders. They guide and shape the destiny of students. Teachers teach us to become better human beings. Sometimes, teachers scold us but there is their love and affection towards us behind their scolding. They scold us for our betterment. Teacher is the profession that creates all the professions like doctor, engineer, advocate, Chartered accountant and so on.

     Teachers like Dr. Radhakrishnan, Sane Guruji and Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam are some of the renowned names that have given meaning to the world of teachers. In mythology we find many examples of Gurus and disciples such as Dronacharya and Eklavya, Sandipani and Shrikrishna etc. Eklavya is known as an ideal student.When Guru Dronacharya refused to teach archery to Eklavya because he was Shudra,(because Shudra was considered as the lowest category in the society at that time.) Eklavya built the mud idol /statue of Dronacharya and practised archery before it and became the skilled archer equalled to Arjun.

On seeing the skill of Eklavya in archery, Guru Dronacharya was astonished. He asked for Eklavya’s right thumb as Guru Dakshina because he didn’t want Eklavya to excel/exceed/surpass Arjun. And without thinking so much, Eklavya cut off his right thumb and put it at the feet of his Guru. It shows his reverence/honour/respect towards his Guru. Eklavya still continued to practise archery with the forefingers and middle fingers and remains as an example of an ideal student till today. We should also keep Eklavya as a role model before us and gain the knowledge. We should concentrate on our target like Eklavya.

   Today, we are living in the age of science and technology. We learn many things through various apps. We get vast knowledge through internet but as per my opinion, no one can replace the teachers because teachers not only give us knowledge but also shape our personality by teaching many moral lessons. Apart from academic, they stand by us at every step to guide, motivate and inspire us to become good citizens.

   We are proud to say that we are being cultivated by the finest gardeners. We pray for their well beings and good health. I would like to express my gratitude towards all teachers for their selfless and dynamic support. We are always grateful to you. I conclude my speech by wishing you.

 Happy Teacher’s Day.

Thank you.

Q. Write a speech on the occasion of Republic Day.

Answer

A very good morning and happy Republic Day to everyone. Honourable President, respected guests, respected teachers and my dear friends, today is an auspicious day as we are celebrating 74th Republic Day. Every year we celebrate this day with great zeal and enthusiasm. This is an important national festival.

Friends, Can you tell what is Republic ? Yes,Republic is a kingless form of government that has no monarchy and no hereditary aristocracy. It means the Supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives.
Well, can you tell why it is celebrated on 26th of January? Yes, because our constitution came into force on 26th January 1950. Since then we celebrate this day as the Republic day.

Jahan dal dal par sone ki,chidiya karati hai basera ,Wah Bharat desh hai Mera, wah Bharat desh hai Mera……


Friends ,once our country was described as Golden sparrow because it was very prosperous which was ruled by the British. They looted us and treated us brutally.We, Indians tolerated all injustice for hundred years i.e from 1757 (Battle of Plasey) to 1857(Revolt of 1857) but later on we (Indians)had lost our patience and started agitation against the British in 1857. In the revolt of 1857, the queen of Zanshi i Laxmibai, Tatya Tope, Nanasaheb Peshwa fought with the British. Mangal Pandey became the first Martyr of Indian freedom struggle. Apart from these, many Indian leaders such as Lokmanya Tilak, Lala Lajpat Rai, Pt.Nehru fought against the British to break the shackles of slavery.

Many revolutionarists such as Swatantryaveer Sawarkar, Netaji Shubhas Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev, Batukeshwar Datta and so on were imprisoned and hanged to death . Many movements such as Non-cooperation movement (1920),Civil disobedience movement (1930),Quit India movement (1942) were started under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi ,the father of the nation.

Friends, my purpose behind giving these examples is that we got independence with great efforts and sacrifice of the many known and unknown Indians.

Well, though we got independence on 15th August 1947, we didn’t have our own constitution.
What is constitution?Yes,constitution means a set of rules and regulations which is essential for disciplinary adminstration of the government.

Before giving us independence, the cabinet mission was sent in India in 1946.The British challenged us to form/ prepare our own constitution.We accepted their challenge and the work of constitution was begun on 9th December 1946. Dr.Rajendra Prasad was the president of Constitution Committee and Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar was the president of Drafting Committee. He took a lot of efforts for preparing our constitution. That’s why he is called an architect of Indian Constitution. At last our constitution was ready after spending a long period i.e 2 years, 11 months and 18 days. It was approved on 26 th November 1949 and implemented from 26th January 1950.Since then we celebrate 26th January as the Republic day every year.

Well, friends, now we are living in free India, democratic India.Our constitution has given us Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and Justice as well as many fundamental rights. But it has also given us some duties and responsibilities. So,while living in this Republic country ,we should not forget the devotion of freedom fighters. As the responsible citizens, we should protect our nation from all the evils and do something great for the betterment of our nation.

Friends, remember , Right and Duty are two sides of the same coin. While fighting for our rights, we should be aware of our own duties too.Whatever work (duty) we have to do, do it honestly, sincerely because Honesty is the best policy. We should do our duties honestly so that our nation will prosper and the sacrifice of the freedom fighters will not go in vain.I conclude my speech by paying my humble tribute to all the known and unknown freedom fighters.

JAI HIND!
Thank you.

Honourable Principal, respected teachers, and my dear friends!

I stand before you today with a sense of urgency and purpose as we come together to observe Earth Day on April 22. Across the globe, a collective awareness is growing regarding the critical challenges created by climate change.

Earth Day is not merely a date on the calendar; it is a reminder of our responsibility to safeguard the environment. Climate change affects us all. It impacts the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the future we imagine. It is a call to unite in our efforts to address and decrease the consequences of a changing climate.

Each one of us, as students and future leaders, holds the power to make a difference. We can support sustainable practices, embrace eco-friendly lifestyles, and advocate for policies that build the health of our planet. Our actions, both big and small, contribute to the collective impact needed to combat climate change.

Supporting the cause of Earth Day goes beyond symbolic gestures. It requires a commitment to sustainable living, environmental education, and the promotion of renewable resources. Let us use this day as a catalyst for change, inspiring not only ourselves but those around us to be conscious stewards of our Earth.

With these words, I would like to conclude my speech.

Thank you.

Honourable Principal, respected teachers, and my dear friends!

It is both an honor and a bittersweet privilege to stand before you today to bid farewell to my guru and our esteemed supervisor Mr. Manoj Deshmukh Sir. He has been the heart and soul of our college for the past 28 years.

As I look back on these two years, I am filled with a profound sense of gratitude for the impact Mr. Manoj Deshmukh Sir has had on our college. I also remember his countless dedication to education. For nearly three decades, Mr. Manoj Deshmukh Sir has been a beacon of wisdom, guidance, and unwavering support to many students.

In the classroom, Mr. Manoj Deshmukh Sir was more than just an instructor. He was a mentor who inspires us to pursue our dreams. His passion for teaching textbooks in an innovative way was remarkable.

Mr. Manoj Deshmukh Sir played an important role in developing a sense of community within our college. Whether it was organizing events, counseling students, or simply lending the event, he becomes an example of the true spirit of mentorship.

Mr. Manoj Deshmukh Sir, your legacy extends far beyond the walls of this institution. You have not only given knowledge but developed in us a love for learning, a commitment to excellence, and a belief in our own potential.

On this day I want to say that your presence will be deeply missed.

Write a speech to be delivered on the occasion of ‘National Science Day.’ (28 February)

Honourable chairperson, the principal, respected teachers, and my dear friends! Today, we are celebrating ‘National Science Day’ as we celebrate other days.

Friends , can you tell why it is celebrated on 28th February. Yes, this day is celebrated to mark the  discovery of the Raman Effect by a great Indian physicist ,C.V. Raman on 28th February 1928.For that  he won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1930.

Well, there are certain objectives behind the celebration of this day  i.e to spread the message of the importance of science in day to day life, to display all the efforts, activities and the achievements in the field of science for human welfare, to discuss all the issues and implement new technology in the future and to give an opportunity to the scientific minded people etc.

By keeping these objectives before our eyes, schools and colleges celebrate this day with great zeal and enthusiasm. Schools and colleges organize science exhibition, quizzes, projects, poster making competition etc. for making the students aware of its importance.

Friends, we are living in the world of science and technology. Science has made wonderful progress in our life. Our day begins with science and ends with science, it means we use many things from morn to night that are produced by science. But remember, science is a boon as well as a curse for us. It is in our hand how to use it. The nearest example is of Mobile . It was boon during  the pandemic of Covid 19, but now it has become the curse for us.We spend our precious time on it. Remember, ‘अती तिथे माती.’ If we use it for a long time, it will affect our eyesight, brain and eventually our whole body. We will become passive.

So, friends, on this occasion I would like to say, ‘science is for us ,we are not for science’. Develop scientific views and remove the superstitions on the name of spirituality. Science and spirituality go hand in hand. Rastrasant Tukodoji Maharaj also says, “विज्ञान और अध्यात्म के सहयोग से हो सब सुखी.”

It means science and spirituality are the two wheels of development. Science shows us the path of progress and spirituality gives us energy to walk on this path of development.

Well, So, use it for the good cause and not for bad, means not for the destruction. We have recently landed the Chandrayan -3 successfully. It happened due to science.  Making Atom bombs and manufacturing the various weapons are the creation of science and it causes destruction during the war. So, science should be used for good cause and not for destruction.

Friends, I hope you understand the importance of science in our life.

Wishing you happy science day.

Thank you.🙏🙏
