India celebrates Teachers Day every year on 05th September to honour teachers for their significant contributions in shaping the life of students. The day is being celebrated in India to commemorate the birth anniversary of the First Vice President of India and the Second President of India and an educationist at heart, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
India is celebrating the Teachers Day on 05th of September since 1962. This is the year when Dr Radhakrishnan assumed charge as the President of India. Since then the day is celebrated to acknowledge the hardship, challenges and the unparalleled role played by teachers in our lives.
