On behalf Edubilla, I wish all teachers in India a very “Happy Teacher’s Day”.
In India, September 5 is celebrated as Teacher’s day since 1962 to honor & thank teachers and to remember their contributions. It is a great chance for the students to express their gratitude towards teachers and tell them that they are special persons in their life. Teacher’s day is celebrated in schools, colleges and educational institutions with different programmes & activities to honor teachers.
This day marks the birth anniversary of India’s first vice president & second president (1962-1967) Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Prior to that he was a great scholar & professor who succeeded in his academic career. He had a thought that teachers should be the best minds in the country.
Do you know its origin?
When Dr.Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan became president In 1962, some of his students, friends and well-wishers asked permission to celebrate his birthday. He replied them “Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers’ Day.” From that day on wards it has been celebrated as he requested.
Teachers are guiding force and great companion for students who mold them in a better way. They create a great impact in the hearts and minds of students.
