NEW DELHI: Accepting the invitation of a Delhi Government school, President Pranab Mukherjee has once again agreed to teach the kids this Teacher’s Day. 

The President, who was a college teacher and a journalist before he joined politics in 1969, held a joint class for the students of Dr Rajendra Prasad Sarvodaya Vidyalaya at the school located inside the Presidential Estate last year.

The students assembled on the 'knowledge floor' to listen to their new teacher.

The idea was mooted by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia.

The President gave consent to be part of the state government's programme 'Be a Teacher' where renowned personalities from different walks of life like art, culture, sports, business, politics and civil services take classes and inspire students to achieve excellence in life.
