The distinctive aspect about their program being how they manage to introduce a novel component into these awards every year. Dr S. Radhakrishnan Memoral National Teacher’s and Media Network Award conferred on outstanding achievers by their organization has indeed been playing a crucial role in inspiring the brilliant achievers in various fields to scale even bigger heights. Educationists have a key role to play in the society which is why they are respected universally and remembered all their lives for their role in character building and holistic development. While there can be some exceptional instances of excesses having been committed by some teachers, it pains when we start painting everyone with the same brush. Taking teachers to task has become more frequent now with even a slight rebuke being treated as some sort of a serious offence. Children and their parents must realize and appreciate that if they are being admonished by their teachers, it is for their betterment, and to help them improve their performance. Barring exceptions, no teacher would unnecessarily punish or rebuke a child. Teaching is unquestionably noblest of all professions.”
