Today is September 5 and this day is celebrated to honor every teacher in India, especially. Talking about global facts, international Teachers’ day is destined for October 5. No doubt, teachers are responsible for bringing immense contributions and inspiration to students. In India, Teachers’ Day is celebrated on the auspicious birth anniversary of none other than, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was the first Vice President of independent India. Well, he was also the second President of India.
But, why do Indians mark Teachers’ Day on his birth anniversary? He was a highly-respected philosopher who was a great teacher and educationist at heart. It was 1962 when Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s students and friends asked for his permission to celebrate his upcoming birthday on September 5.
Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who believed that teachers are the best minds of the country, urged them that he would be more grateful and honored if they observe his birthday as Teachers’ Day. Since then, September 5 has been followed to celebrate every teacher’s hard work, dedication, and disciplinary lifestyle and honor them with due respect.
Significance of Teachers’ Day
No matter which country celebrates Teachers’ Day on which date, we should acknowledge our teachers’ contributions every day. When they are showing the right path to youngsters with lifetime commitments and responsibilities, a day should be dedicated to them to entertain them. Teachers can reshape the destiny of students and they are one of the role models that we have come across.
Teachers invoke goodness in us so that we can prosper as humble and worthy human beings. A teacher’s job is never easy and we express our gratitude to all our teachers on this specific day. Whether it’s September 5, or October 5, every nation might have been following different days for honoring teachers and teachers deserve this after facing infinite challenges and hardships, every day.
Celebration of Teachers’ Day
Since last year, we all are stuck inside our homes and school, colleagues are shut. Thanks to the virtual network that has kept us still in touch. So, you can call your teacher or surprise him or her with some heart-warming messages. A small effort from you can make your teacher’s day, or even his or her entire life of devotion towards students.
Once this pandemic stops, we can expect things to get back to normal again. Again, schools and colleagues will be arranging activities to make teachers feel special with games, singing, dancing, or any kind of performance from students. Such small acts from the noble hearts of students can bring a smile to your teacher’s face. But, this year, send your teachers a gift or flowers with some hand-written Teachers’ Day wishes from your batchmates to honor them.
