Google can never be greater than a Guru!The Vice-President of India was addressing an inaugural function of Convention centre in AP and was praising the role of a teacher. He is famous for quoting punch dialogues and one such one was - A Google can never replace a Guru!
This caught my attention in the news headlines today. Gone are those days when we go to the teacher to clear our doubts and wait for our turn to get them clarified. With the accessibility of Internet at our doorsteps, we are not bothered to meet the teacher and would surf the webpages suggested by Mr.Google. With the facilities provided in various schools, the smart teaching class rooms also make the teacher stand and simply watch the proceedings carried by the e-learning online tools.
But how can we ignore the expertise and experience of a qualified teacher who can guide you to move on a right path? Can Google overshadow the experienced Guru and replace him?
