Teachers’ Day is observed every year in India on 5th September to commemorate the birth of former President of India, scholar, philosopher, and Bharat Ratna awardee, Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Born on 5 September 1888, he was an educationist, an advocate of edification, a distinguished envoy, academician, and above all, a great teacher.
Teachers inspire and motivate us to do well and achieve great things in life. They mould us into successful citizens of the world, and Teachers’ Day is celebrated with much pomp to recognise the hard work of our mentors. Teachers are known to nurture the minds of students, and no one can survive in this world without knowledge. They instil values in youth and help them become responsible citizens.
Teachers’ Day is an occasion that both students and teachers look forward to. The Day is significant for students because it allows them to appreciate the efforts made by their teachers to guarantee that they receive a quality education. Similarly, teachers look forward to Teachers’ Day since their efforts are recognised and honoured.
This special day gives an excellent opportunity to celebrate and cherish the interaction between teachers and students. Students organise various events to entertain teachers at schools and universities on Teachers Day. These events include various contests like dancing, recitations, and numerous games, etc. They also offer gifts to the teachers and express their affection to the teachers on that special day.
Children are the future of a country, thus they must be constructively fostered, which teachers do the best since children are motivated by them. Teachers sincerely care about their students’ best interests and perform a vital role in society. The authority that teachers wield has the potential to shape students for future generations.
