A heartfelt thank you to all the teachers who spend their time, energy, and love to care to educate our children. Happy Teachers Day!
Teacher’s Day is celebrated on September 5, 2017, in India. This date marks the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on September 5, 1888. Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was the second president of India and people all over the country remember his great contributions to the country. The renowned scholar had asked people to celebrate his birthday as Teacher’s Day and the first Teacher’s day was celebrated on September 5, 1962.
Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was the first vice-president of our country, and people honour all the teachers who have contributed to our lives. Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was awarded several high awards in his life including honorary membership of the British Royal Order of Merit in 1963. While the traditional Vedic Teachers’ day is celebrated on Guru Purnima, Teacher’s Day celebrations on September 5 usually include special functions that are organised by students to make their teachers feel special. Kids in schools and colleges also present special cards, greetings, bouquets and gifts to their teachers.
