Mumbai: 'Guruvar Awards', the biggest Teacher's Awards in the country, announced its Winners today. Having started in September 2009, the interactive campaign culminated into the celebration of the Indian School Teacher. 16 winners amongst over 1 lakh nominations by people across the nation were announced and felicitated as India's best Gurus.

The Awards were initiated by the Varkey Gems Foundation to recognize the critical role that teachers play in our community. 

On the successful culmination of the campaign, Mr. Sunny Varkey, Founder of Guruvar Awards and the Chairperson of Varkey Gems Foundation said: "A healthy and sound education system is one of the pillars for any developing nation. There is no education without teachers and without enough teachers we cannot improve the education our children receive. A shortage of strong and passionate teachers will threaten our education system.

"A proper education can lift people from the scourge of poverty; it can educate us on the importance of cultural and religious tolerance and help us tackle other global problems like, climate change. Teachers create the leaders of tomorrow in all facets of society. For these reasons I believe that teaching is the noblest of professions so we need to acknowledge our teachers and promote teaching as a preferred profession amongst youth in India. "
"I believe the Guruvar Awards can be a powerful and interactive platform to express gratitude towards those who have contributed so much in shaping our lives" concluded Mr. Varkey
The 48 finalists and then the 16 winners were selected from amongst 1 lakh entries through an intensive selection process. Right from pan-India online nominations, reviews, to interviews by Zone Jury and the Grand Jury, the Strategic Advisory Panel of eminent personalities guided the course of the awards. The nation was divided into four zones, North, South, East and West to aid nomination process. 4 winners from each zone, one from each of the 4 categories accounted to 16 winners across the nation.
