Teacher plays a significant role in shaping children’s life. Anybody can be your teacher whether it is your friend, family member or even a stranger. We celebrate Teachers' Day on 5th September to pay respect to them.
In India, 5th September is observed as the Teachers' Day to celebrate Dr. Sarvepally Radhakrishnan’s birthday. Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a philosopher and a teacher par excellence. He had made huge contribution to enhance the education levels in India.
The former President said that "instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if 5th September is observed as Teachers' Day". On this occasion, we celebrate Teachers Day with great pomp and show. Senior students dress up like their teachers and teach their juniors. We celebrate the special occasion with our respected teachers and receive an encouraging lesson to succeed in life. Students organise some special activities to make their teachers feel proud and give them recognition.
