Celebrations on September 5th have over the years become a tradition in India when disciples pay tribute to their Gurus or Teachers.
And the tradition was very well followed by the Sambalpur centre of Smile Foundation in Orissa. The students presented bouquets to the project teachers and enchanted vedic mantras in their respect. This was followed by a Sambalpuri dance performance by the students. An antakshari competition was also organized and all the people, teachers and the students alike, enjoyed participating and competing against each other.
The Rotary Club of Sambalpur also felicitated Smile Foundation for its good work and gave certificates of appreciation and flower bouquets to all the project teachers to honour them on the occasion of Teacher’s Day.
