A guide, support, friend, inspiration, motivation and above all a teacher is the one who teaches you the right path of life. Teacher’s Day is an occasion to convey your thanks and pay your regards for your dearest mentor.
The tradition of celebrating Teacher’s Day, started by a group of students who wanted to honor their favorite teacher Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was the second president of India and some of his students wanted to celebrate his birthday on September 5. After hearing this he replied, “Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if 5 September is observed as Teachers’ Day.”
Since then, September 5 is celebrated as, Teacher’s Day every year. This year, let’s remember the best teachers of India who have imparted their knowledge for the betterment of the society.
