Every year in India, Teachers' Day is celebrated on September 5 to acknowledge the contribution of teachers to the society. Today is the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, Second President and First Vice President of India. But why India appointed Dr. Radhakrishnan birthday on teachers’ day? This is because after he became the President of India in 1962, some students asked him for permission to celebrate his birthday.

However, Radha Krishnan was not in favour of any lavish celebrations and instead requested that the day be designated as Teachers' Day. Since then, September 5 has been designated as the National Teacher's Day. To mark this day, schools and other educational institutions organize various cultural events. The purpose of this celebration is to recognize the contribution of teachers to society. Dr. Radhakrishnan is highly respected by his students. He has always emphasized the power of education to encourage students to learn and contribute to a better future.

"Teachers should be the best in the country," the former president was sure. He graduated with a master's degree in philosophy and wrote The Philosophy of Tagore in 1917. He was the Vice-Chancellor of Andhra University from 1931 to 1936 and then Vice-Chancellor of Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in 1939. At the same time, it is worth noting that International Teachers' Day is celebrated a month later, at October 5 Worldwide.
