Why we celebrate Teachers Day in India?
Teaching is a profession, which is the most influential of all. Our teachers are known to shape our minds, perceptions and they impart a good value. Almost every country celebrates Teachers Day in their own individual ways but here in India, we celebrate this day in the memory of former president Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Dr. Radhakrishnan was a man of quality and principles who was a renowned scholar and a teacher and was considered as the favorite among his students. This day came into existence when he requested that his birthday should be celebrated in the honor of every teacher if his birthday is ever celebrated. So till this day, Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday is observed as Teacher’s Day in the existing timeline, in India. In short, we celebrate this day in honor of all the teachers who are the principal architects of this society and without whom, the progress of this society would remain stagnant. In India, Teacher’s Day is observed on the 5th of September, every year.
