A voluntary social and cultural organisation dedicated to promote Hindu ideals in the US has felicitated more than 1,250 teachers in 20 states as part of the 'Guru Vandana' programme, it said in a statement today.
The non-profit Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), USA, felicitated the teachers in the months of May and June as part of the annual programme, which coincides with the teachers appreciations week and National Teachers Day.
"The Guru Vandana programme provides an opportunity to show the gratitude to teachers in Hindu way. Children feel good about their culture while teachers get a pleasure of meeting their students' families and experiencing a unique way of appreciation by the entire community," said Anajali Patel, national coordinator for Guru Vandana events for HSS, which seeks its inspiration from RSS in India.
HSS said it organised Guru Vandana events across the US to honour teachers and their contribution in the society over the two months.
"More than 1,250 teachers, principals, and superintendent as well as a total of over 6,500 attendees (which includes HSS families as well dance, music, arts, karate, physical fitness teachers and coaches), participated in 65 events held from North to South and East to West in over 20 states," it said.
