Teachers’ Day is celebrated to convey gratitude to the teachers who have nurtured us with love and dedication.
They play a very vital role in every student’s life. A good teacher can ignite the imagination, inspire hope and instil a love for learning in a child.
In India, Teachers’ Day is celebrated annually on September 5 to mark the birthday of the country’s former President, scholar, and philosopher, Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on this day in 1888.
Once Dr Radhakrishnan said, “Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers’ Day.”
Ever since then, the day is celebrated as Teacher’s Day across schools, colleges, universities and educational institutions.
