Happy Teachers Day

Teachers' Day is dedicated to our teachers, mentors and gurus who guide us to be learned students and better human beings. They devote their lives for the well-being of the future generation and are thus revered, appreciated and celebrated on Teacher's Day. The day is marked on different dates across the world. In India, Teachers' Day is celebrated on September 5, the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan since 1962. Dr Radhakrishnan was a philosopher, scholar, an exemplary teacher, and politician who dedicated his life towards education and shaping up the youth of the country. He was also the first Vice-President of India and the second President of India. His contributions in the field of education are exemplary.

On Teachers' day, students write heartfelt tributes to their teachers and thank them for believing in them, guiding them and pushing them to be better. Teachers are not just restricted to schools and college times alone, they come in every age and can also be your boss, neighbour or fitness coach.

Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan :He was born in a Telugu-speaking family and received his surname from his forefathers who were from Sarvepalli village in Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh.

He has played many roles in his life. He has been a teacher, philosopher author and politician. He was the first Vice President of India from 1952 to 1962 and the second President of India from 1962 to 1967.

When he became the President of India, some of his students and friends requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, on 5 September. He replied,

Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if September 5th is observed as Teachers' Day.[25]

His birthday has since been celebrated as Teachers' Day in India.
