Why we celebrate Teacher’s Day?
Teacher’s Day is celebrated on September 5 in India every year to mark the birth anniversary of India’s second President, Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. It is believed that, once, some friends and students of Dr Radhakrishnan’s visited him and requested to celebrate his birthday after he became the President of India. To which, Our former President, Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan said that he would be highly obliged if 5th September would rather celebrate as Teacher’s Day. Since then, Our country India has observed this day as Teacher’s Day.
Across the nation, students mark Teachers Day and pay respect to their mentors and thank their teachers for always being there whenever they needed. Teachers are the back bone of our country.
