India is celebrating 'Teachers Day' with great joy today. Teachers’ Day is celebrated every year on 5th September, a day that coincides with the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan — the former President of India. Dr Radhakrishnan had said that “teachers should be the best minds in the country”. And it is this belief of his that is honoured on the day.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday expressed his gratitude to teachers for “their remarkable efforts” in shaping minds and building the nation on the occasion of Teachers’ Day.
“We remain grateful to the hardworking teachers for their contributions towards shaping minds and building our nation. On Teachers Day, we express gratitude to our teachers for their remarkable efforts. We pay tributes to Dr. S. Radhakrishnan on his Jayanti. #OurTeachersOurHeroes,” PM Modi tweeted.
Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal wrote, “I wish all the countrymen on Teachers Day and salute all the gurus. Come, on this occasion of Teachers’ Day, we thank our teachers, counselors and parents, with whose blessings we have learned a lot.”
Unlike other years, most schools and colleges will conduct their Teachers’ Day programmes in virtual mode. In honour of their teachers, students will host special programmes and share their love online due to the pandemic. Social media, including Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, were flooded with wishes and messages this morning.
Teachers’ Day is celebrated across the country in the memory of Dr S Radhakrishnan, a philosopher-author and India’s second president who was born on September 5, 1888. Also, his contributions to the field of education are exemplary. The tradition to celebrate Teachers’ Day started in 1962 to honour Radhakrishnan and other teachers.
'True teachers are those who help us think for ourselves,' Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan had said.
Happy Teachers' Day!
