Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a renowned educator, philosopher, and former President of India. Teachers’ Day is a moment to pay tribute to the devoted efforts of all teachers who hold a prominent position in the intellectual and moral growth of students.
When Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan took on the role of the second President of India in 1962, his students approached him with a request to mark September 5 as a special day. However, he humbly suggested that they instead celebrate September 5 as Teachers’ Day to recognize the priceless contributions of educators to society.
