"I am very passionate about education, about the right kind of teaching methodologies and also about the intent involved in imparting education. In India, I have seen teachers teaching under flyovers, in slums- free of cost and selflessly. I have always been very appreciative of teachers and whenever I got a chance through my talk show, I have saluted the teachers who have changed the lives of hundreds of children. This award gives me a chance to appreciate and acknowledge the work done by teachers globally. "
