Teachers day celebration - Sept.5,2017:-
“The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.” - Edward Bulwer-Lytton
In India September 5, is celebrated as Teaches' Day as a mark of tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society. September 5, is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education, and was a well-known diplomat, scholar, President of India and above all a Teacher.
When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the President of India in 1962, he was approached by some of his students and friends and requested him to allow them to celebrate his "Birthday". In reply, Dr.Radhakrishnan said, "Instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers Day". The request showed Dr.Radhakrishnan's love for the teaching profession. From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers Day in India.
