Let us compare the roles of a soldier and a teacher.

Soldier :-

  • Guards the country against external threats.
  • In order to continue his job effectively, he has to stay away from his home, family for prolonged periods of time.
  • He may have to serve in a desert where the temperature may soar up to 55 degree Celsius or at 22,000 feet at -40 degree Celsius.
  • He risks his life, whenever the need be. For a soldier safety of his countrymen comes first, then the safety of his boys and his own safety comes last.

Teacher :-

  • Has the responsibility to teach children.
  • Children go to schools/colleges throughout their learning age, and the attitude of teachers towards their students and profession shapes the future of those students.
  • Are responsible for shaping the future of the country.

Conclusion :-

Out of many reasons that India is still a developing country, one of the main reasons is lack of education. Research and data have shown that no country in this world has ever prospered without education or lack of basic healthcare facilities.

There are 23 countries in the world which do not have an army but there is no country in the world which can exist without schools.

    In my opinion both the professions hold their own importance in our life. Education has been stated as the crucial part of development of a person. education makes us aware of our surrounding ,helps us explore things in a better way, it helps develop sense of right and wrong. and The person who introduces us to education is our teacher. So, Rightfully the teacher holds the credit of competent youth.
    On the other hand, in the world where there are rivalries between nations, threats of invasion, cross border attacks ,it is our brave soldier who shoulders the responsibility of guarding the lives of his/her countrymen. If either of them gives in ,the country will be left in a faltering situation.so they are the two major pillars who hold the country together.

    A teacher is not just responsible for shaping the future of the country by imparting knowledge from textbooks. He also ensures that the country gets honest leaders who can lead the country to prosperity.
    Along with knowledge from books, he teaches students the moral values of life. Any leader of the country will admit that qualities of honesty, sincerity & dedication he has are only because of his teachers.
    Even a soldier who has patriotism & discipline learnt it from the teachers.
    Teachers are nation builders who despite the repetitive task of their jobs never lose interest in the job and continue to impart lessons to students.
    Having said all above, I don’t mean to say that Teachers serve the country more than soldiers.
    Soldiers show an unmatchable spirit of courage, bravery & determination. Their sacrifices for country inspire many generations. Only when soldier is guarding the nation, teacher gets an opportunity to do his job. Without soldiers, there will be no education & only chaos, violence will be there.
    Both are equally important for a nation to prosper.

    The role of a soldier cannot be compared to that of a teacher and vice versa… A child’s first learning center is his home where he learns from his parents and is then handed over to the teachers…. The mindset of a child get shaped by what he learns from his parents..teachers and that mindset gives him the freedom to choose what he can learn and adopt from his surroundings… The actual role of teachers is to work selflessly to nurture the kids.. To make them see different picture.. Make them groom their personality.. Make them persons of value who are capable to lead their nation and think rational ..This is not the scenario everywhere.. As teachers have become more moneyminded(not everywhere).. The focus is more on learning the text than improving and grooming them…. A soldier on the other hand does the highest form of scarifice who is ready to lay his life anytime….. Whatever may be the payscale the amount of ragda he gets is the same… His work and thoughts for his nation will be the same that is service before self no matter under what situation he is in which is the highest form of sacrifice…..

    According to me teacher and soldiers both are important. Teacher teach us and soldiers protect our country , from invader I e we can sleep at night peacefully. So we should always salute our soldiers. But teacher builds the future generation. When a child takes birth and gradually he starts learning from parents and then teacher , he goes to the school, accordingly he continues his study and after completing the education he starts his career . Education is very essential, even in day to day life, without education anybody cannot explore them, if a person lot of money but he doesn’t have education it is curse for them anybody can dupe them , cheat them but a person he doesn’t have lots of money but he has education , he is full of prosperity. Any person cannot develop without education and any society cannot develop without education and without our teacher it is not possible. So teacher serves the country most .
