Happy Teachers Day
Teachers Day is celebrated on 5th of September every year in India. It happens to be the birth anniversary of the country’s former President, Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. Apart from holding the position of the nation’s most loved and respected president, he was also a teacher in many reputed universities. He adored children and children too loved him back. The day is celebrated as Teachers Day in India because once a group of students he taught requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday throughout the country in 1962. He instead suggested them to mark his birthday as teachers day.
