Wai Khru or Teachers' Day, in Thai educational institutions, is a ceremony done to honor teachers. Schools hold the ceremony usually at the beginning of the academic year, and always on a Thursday. In Thai tradition, Thursday is the day of Brihaspati, the Vedic God of wisdom and of teachers. Students present teachers with flower offerings to show their respect and gratitude. These are some shots from a Wai Khru ceremony last week in one school in Bangkok. A 'non-photographer' took these shots. But here's hoping some cultural snippets managed to come out of them. You can click on the photos to enlarge. Students waiting for the ceremony to begin Class representatives offer flowers to the teachers -- and bow. The next batch does the same .
