Why We Celebrate Teacher's Day

Teachers' Day is celebrated every year on September 5 in India so as to commemorate the birth of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishan, the second President of the nation. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakhrishnan was a philosopher and a great teacher whose contribution toward the Indian education system is undeniable.


Teachers' Day History

Teachers' Day has been celebrated in India since September 5, 1962. It was first observed on request by the students and friends of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishan, who wanted to celebrate his birthday. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishan suggested that instead of celebrating his birthday, the students should observe September 5 as Teachers' Day. Since then teacher's Day celebrations are held all across India on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishan.
