Teacher’s Day is celebrated annually on September 5 to stamp the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the First Vice-President and the second President of India, who was also a teacher, scholar, and philosopher. His commitment to shaping India’s schooling is immense.
It is a day to respect, perceive and praise the nation’s educators.
History of Teacher’s Day:
Teachers’ Day is set apart on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. In 1962, when he took the office of the President of India, his students moved toward him to seek permission to observe September 5 as a special day.
He instead asked them to observe this day as Teacher’s Day, to perceive the commitment of teachers to society. From that point onward, Teacher’s Day has been celebrated across schools, colleges, universities, and instructive institutions.
Significance of this day:
The day holds significance, as students across all instructive institutions show appreciation and honor to every one of their teachers and mentors.
Teachers are also perceived for their unspoken commitment to the improvement of society. Schools also honor Dr. Radhakrishnan.
How is the day celebrated in India?
In schools, students set up dance and singing performances, events, and dramas for their teachers. Students also give their number one teachers roses, handcrafted cards, and gifts as a badge of appreciation.
Be that as it may, inferable from the COVID-19 pandemic, celebrations this year will generally be virtual as many schools keep on working on the web.
