TEACHERS’ DAY CELEBRATION – Teachers’ Day is celebrated every year on 5th of September to honor and acknowledge the contribution made by countless numbers of teachers in helping and molding the careers of lakhs of students and in turn shaping the destiny.
The day was marked for the celebration as Teachers’ Day since 1962 in respect and deference of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was born on 5th September, 1888. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a great scholar, philosopher and teacher of modern India and was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 1954. He became the first Vice President of India (from 1952 to 1962) and the second President of India (from 1962 to 1967). It was his wish that instead of celebrating his birthday on 5th of September every year, it would be better to celebrate it as Teachers’ Day all over India.
