The guru-shishya tradition has been an important part of our education system for centuries.
Remember Eklavya [ Images ] honing his archery skills in front of Dronacharya's sculpture and offering him his thumb as Guru Dakshina?
We in India [ Images ] have always honoured this special relationship between a teacher and student.
Today is Guru Purnima, and for many Indians it is a special day when you will be paying your respects to your gurus.
Did you come across a guru who showed you the right path, guided you towards success and mended your ways when you strayed? S/he could be anybody from within your family, your school, your college, your office or your locality.
