Teachers’ Day Today! Know History & Significance


New Delhi: Teachers’ Day is celebrated on the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. In 1962, when he took the office of the President of India, his students approached him to seek permission to celebrate September 5 as a special day.

He instead asked them to observe this day as Teacher’s Day, to recognise the contribution of teachers to society.

Ever since then, September 5 is celebrated as Teacher’s Day across schools, colleges, universities and educational institutions. Students put on performances, dances and host elaborate shows for their most-loved teachers.

The day holds significance, as students across all educational institutions show gratitude and honour to all their teachers and mentors.

Teachers are also recognised for their unspoken contribution to the development of society. Schools also pay tribute to Dr Radhakrishnan.
