The theme for National Teacher’s Day 2022 is शिक्षकः बढ़ते संकट के बीच भविष्य की नई कल्पना (Teachers: leading in crisis, reimagining the future). The theme explains it all yourself. The teachers play a vital role in guiding and preparing the younger generation to be equipped with the knowledge to deal with them.
