Happy teacher’s day 2021

Team adda247 wishes all the teachers a very happy teacher’s day. Teachers play a very important role in making a future for a student by selflessly mentoring them, supporting them, and teaching them good values without being selfish. It is a saying by Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan that
The true teachers are those who help us think for ourselves. For the past year, we have been unable to celebrate this day because of the COVID-19 situation but we are virtually wishing all the teachers a very happy teacher’s day.

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.
