Teachers Day is celebrated on September 5th in India and is a day to express the love and gratitude we feel towards those who have taught us in life.
Why 5th September?
5 September 1888 was the birth day of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the first Vice President and the second President of India. Teacher’s day is celebrated on his birth anniversary.
He was awarded the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian honour in the country in 1954. Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was nominated 27 times for the Nobel Prize; 16times for the Nobel Prize in literature, and 11 times for the Nobel Peace prize.
Parents are a child’s first teacher who gives them life lessons and after them comes the Guru or teacher who leads the child ahead in life. In our young and impressionable years, our teachers played a very important role ,they have been our role models, our inspiration, and parent figures outside of our home who taught us many lessons about life.
At times they might be tough on us but, in hindsight, it was only to mould and shape our talents, to make us fight our fears and to work on our weaknesses. In fact, a good teacher not only imparts knowledge to their students but they inspire, encourage and instil curiosity to find solutions to problems.Good teachers build knowledge, great teachers build character.
