Happy Teachers Day
Happy Teachers Day for all the teachers in India, Teachers’ Day is the honor of the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was a scholar, recipient of Bharat Ratna, first Vice- President and second President of independent India. He was born on 5 September 1888. He was a grand advocate of education, statesman, scholar, and a great teacher. Radhakrishnan believed that “teachers should be the best minds in the country”.
Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan became President of India in the year 1962. He was approached by some of his friends and students who requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday(i.e 5 September). Dr. Radhakrishnan responded, “Instead of observing my birthday discretely, it would be a privilege if 5th September is scrutinized as Teachers’ Day”. The appeal showed Dr. S. Radhakrishnan’s affection and dedication to the teaching career. Since 1962, his birthday has been celebrated in India as Teachers’ Day on 5 September every year.
Teachers’ Day is a great occasion for celebrating and enjoying the relationship between teachers and students. Students meet their teachers and convey their wishes.
Teachers nourish and prepare students for their whole life as they are the real icon of knowledge, wisdom, create awareness, and literate people. They are the source of the lightning lamp in our lives. It is our teachers who stand behind our success. They help us to improve our knowledge, skill level, confidence as well as shape us to choose the right path and to get success. They do a lot for us so, as a student, it is our duty to thank them at least once a year.
In India, on the eve of Teachers’ Day, i.e. on 5 September, the National Awards are given to the teachers by the President of India. The award is given as public gratitude to praise teachers working in primary schools, middle schools, and secondary schools.
