Teachers' Day: Why Teacher's Day is celebrated on 5th September, know its history and purpose

Teachers always guide us, inspire and make us a good citizen in the society. 
Teachers are the foundation of our life. It is said that for any child, his parents are in the first place and then the teacher in the second place. Teacher's Day is celebrated every year on 5th September to pay respect to the teachers. It is a day of respect, honor and respect for the teachers of the country. Teacher, scholar and philosopher and the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the first Vice President and second President of India, the whole country has been celebrating with enthusiasm as Teacher's Day.

In 1962, when he assumed the office of the President of India, some of his students and friends reached out to him and requested him to allow him to celebrate his birthday. He replied that instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be a proud privilege for me if this 5th September is celebrated as Teacher's Day. Since then, Teacher's Day started being celebrated on his birth anniversary i.e. 5th September. The country's first Vice President Dr. Radhakrishnan was born on 5 September 1888 in a Brahmin family in Tirumani village of Tamil Nadu. He was fond of reading books since childhood and was greatly influenced by Swami Vivekananda. Radhakrishnan died on 17 April 1975 in Chennai.

The day of Teacher's Day holds a lot of importance, as the students of all educational institutions show their gratitude and respect to all their teachers. On this day teachers are also honored for their untold contribution in the development of the society. Every year on this day teachers are honored with the National Teacher Award.

This award is given by the President of the country. In schools, students present dance and singing performances, programs and plays for their teachers. Students also give roses, handmade cards and gifts to their favorite teacher as a token of appreciation.

Teacher's Day is included from China to America, Australia, Albania, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Brazil and Pakistan. Although the date of celebrating this day is different in every country. For example, Teacher's Day is celebrated on 10 September in China, 6 May in America, last Friday of October in Australia, 15 October in Brazil and 5 October in Pakistan.
