I always use the sentence Teachers are the life creator. There was a tradition in India of Guru Shishya Parampra which is now almost the end. But in reality, we need a teacher at every stage of life. We need a people who can guide us. We need a mentor to be successful. Without a teacher, it is not possible to achieve the success. You can take any example from history there is always a teacher, a coach, a mentor behind a successful people. In Mahabharat, Lord Krishna was the guide for all the Pandavas. Guru Chanakya is the most famous name amongst the teachers for his war-winning thought.

Here I have listed out the 5 Greatest Indian Teacher. You must know about.

   Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection; 

   Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
