Even in our cultural literature both are praised more than lord. But today Teaching as profession is to be considered as one of the most averse field, choose as “Plan B” or even “Plan C” for career. Research shows that teaching has become the most stressful profession, leaving behind doctors. In this era Vivekananda Kendra has developed a 6 hrs workshop for teachers to face the situation & to realize teacher’s role in society.
