History and Significance of Teacher’s Day?
In 1962, Dr. Radhakrishan became the second President of Independent India. The main significance to celebrate this day is that Dr Radhakrishan’s students approached him to allow them to celebrate his birthday as a special day. He was surprised and happy by the respect which is given to him by the students even after he was not their teacher. Therefore he instead of granting permission for celerbating this day as his birthday; he requested them to observe 5th September as a Teacher’s Day. Since then every year, 5th September has been celebrated as Teacher’s Day in respect of the contribution of teachers to the country. Teacher’s Day is celebrated in different ways across schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutions. Students put on performances, dances, and gift their loved one teachers with presents, showering their love, faith, and thanking them for whatever they are today.
