Why Teacher Day is Celebrating in India ? Let's come to Know

 


Bodopress: 05 Sep 2020

Teachers' Day is a special day for the appreciation of teachers and may include celebrations to honor them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general. The idea of celebrating Teachers' Day took root in many countries during the 19th century; in most cases, they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education. This is the primary reason why countries celebrate this day on different dates, unlike many other International Days.

Teachers' Day is celebrated every year on September 5, which also marks the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, a renowned scholar and the second President of India. Dr. Radhakrishnan was later sworn as the President of India. He had once famously said: "Teachers should be the best minds of this country". And it is this belief that is honored every year on this day.

Dr. Radhakrishnan was a star teacher and a celebrated academic. He believed in the Buddhist philosopher Nagarjuna's Sutram in the Pali language, 'shikshanam shrenitam, Rida Chesham' which translates into teaching is the noblest profession and the rest does not matter.

Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born on September 5,1888 in a Telugu-speaking family. He had a master's degree in philosophy and an enormous academic career. He taught at Chennai's  Presidency College and Calcutta University. He served as the Vice-Chancellor of Andhra Pradesh University from 1931-1936. He was invited to the prestigious Oxford University to teach Eastern Religions and Ethics in 1936, a position he held for 16 years.

On this day, while students remember the former President of India, they also honor their own teachers by taking part in many cultural programs. Students often bring gifts and cards for their favorite teachers in schools and colleges and tell them how they have shaped their world view and inspired them. This year, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students may have to meet their teachers virtually. Here are some messages, quotes, and wishes they can share to make this Teacher's Day a special occasion:
