Teachers' Day is celebrated every year on 5 September all over the country. The occasion is marked to honour and recognise the efforts of our teachers in shaping us with their love and knowledge.
On this day, students pay tribute to their mentors by making them feel special and thanking them for sharing their valuable learnings.
The birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the first vice-president and second president of India is observed as Teachers' Day. Born on 5 September 1888, Radhakrishnan was a great philosopher, teacher and scholar.
To celebrate the special occasion, cultural events filled with song, dance, and creative programmes are organised every year in schools across the country.
