On 14th November every year, we celebrate the children’s Day in school. This is celebrated to remember Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on his birthday. He loved children and they formly called him “Chacha Nehru.”

Going to school on Children’s Day was great fun. It was like going to a picnic, wearing casual dress instead of school uniform and the hefty school bag. ‘Happy Children’s Day’ banners greeted us, as we made our way to the school auditorium. Unlike other days, we found the teachers and staff extra indulgent towards us. The Principal greeted us and informed that the teachers had organised a special programme for us.

The program me started with a play titled ‘Alice in Wonderland’. It was staged by teachers of the primary section, dwelling on the transformation of a child in the wonderland of a school. It was interesting to see teachers behaving like small kids. This was followed by a hilarious comedy aptly titled, ‘Three idiots’. It was a satire on the students of the senior section, dwelling on the innovative excuses for not doing their homework and making fun of teachers behind their back.

To know that the teachers knew it all was surprising. There was a deafening roar of applause as the curtains came down. We clapped and shouted our hearts out. The play was a welcome departure from the usual song and dance programme of previous years and hence was appreciated by everyone.

The school Captain thanked the teachers on behalf of the students, for taking extra pains in make this occasion memorable. The teachers distributed chocolates to the students and the programme finally concluded.

It was good to see the humorous side of teachers, who generally appear very serious and sombre. However, they put up such a magnificent performance, because of their hard work and team effort. Indeed one and one makes eleven, for working in a group one can do wonders.

The Children’s Day may have come to a close, but my respect for teachers grew manifold that day. One can never repay them for what they do for us. I however resolved to respect and obey them, for this is the least I can do to express my gratitude for them.
