India is a land of ancient cultures and traditions. Guru Purnima is a spiritual tradition dedicated to one’s spiritual and academic teachers who played an important role in your evolvement and enlightenment. Based on ‘Karma Yoga’ the ‘Guru’ shares his wisdom with no monetary expectations and on this day the devotees revere their chosen spiritual teacher/leader to express gratitude. 

To mark the occasion of ‘Guru Purnima’ the Union Minister of Human Resource Development (HRD) has launched a ‘Selfie with Guru’ campaign. Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has shared a video message urging the students and teachers to click a selfie with their ‘Guru’ and upload the same on social media platforms with hashtag #selfiewithguru. This initiative will encourage the children to express their gratitude to whom so ever they consider as Guru and revive the ‘Guru-Shishya’ culture in India.
