Teachers’ Day: Must watch Bollywood movies on teachers

Even though we never liked our teachers in school and made fun of them all the time, we still have to agree that some of them have actually had a positive impact in our life. They have taught us many things.

Bollywood is an important part of every Indian’s life and has a great impact on their lives. We believe in the saying that “A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart”.Today on Teacher’s day, Team AAW lists few  Bollywood movies that showed the importance of a teacher, a guide or a mentor in everyone’s life.

1)     Aamir Khan in Taare Zameen Par (2007):

His role as Ram Shankar Nikumbh changed the way of dealing with kids. The movie showed a strong bond between the teacher and his student who is suffering from dyslexia. While everyone leave the poor kid without any help, Ram comes to his aid and understands him. He helps the kid to cope with depression as well as dyslexia. He tells the world how important it is to help a child with mental disability rather than just abandoning them.
