A teacher is a friend, philosopher and guide who keeps our hands, opens our mind, and touches our heart. The contribution of a teacher cannot be totally ignored. In many countries around the world, Teachers' Day is a special day where teachers of schools, colleges and universities are specially honored. The date varies from country to country. Universal Acceptable World Teacher's Day is October 5. In India, Teacher's Day is celebrated on 5th September and this tradition started from 1962. This was the time when Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born. He was a philosopher, scholar, teacher and politician, and his dedicated work towards education made his birthday a significant day in the history of India. We remember the great work of this exemplary person.
Indeed, this man, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a friendly teacher and he was popular among his students, for example he always used to set them in front. So, one day his students and friends requested him to celebrate his birthday in a wonderful way. In return, he said that if he celebrates his birthday in relation to all the teachers then it will be his pride and honor. And since then, it is celebrated as Teacher's Day on 5th September.

Now, talking about the rest of the world, World Teachers' Day is celebrated on October 5 and it started in the year 1994. It was UNESCO who started this tradition. The focus set by UNESCO was for the achievement of teachers and the primary in the field of education, to celebrate. Now why is October 5 taken as Teacher's Day? On this day in 1966, a special intergovernmental conference adopted UNESCO support for the conditions of teachers.

Why Do We Celebrate?

Teaching is the most impressive job in the world. Teachers are known to shape the minds of youth and no one can exist in this world without knowledge. The teacher provides good value in children and turns them into responsible citizens. So, almost every country celebrates Teacher's Day.

We celebrate this day on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan In India. He was a man of many good qualities and favorite teacher among the students. It was his request that for all teachers in the country their birthday should be celebrated as a respectable day, if someone celebrates their birthday. Therefore, in a nutshell, we celebrate Teacher's Day because the teachers have been the architects of the society and without them no society can run in the path of progress.
In his book "Political Thinker of Modern India", he pointed out the importance of teachers and education in a country like Democratic India, which was still in the early years of development. According to him, teachers have a major role in nation building and teachers should be respected for this. Apart from being a thinker and a teacher, he was also a philosopher. He once wrote a book on the “Bhaagwad  Gita” and defined a teacher there,.

By the time he entered politics, most of the leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, or Dr. Rajendra Prasad were his fans for this idea in nation building. His skills were also proved in the field of politics. He had already had political insights to identify obstacles and party MLAs had to take necessary courage for their delay and crime. Back in 1947, he warned the people of the former Congress about the dangerous consequences of devotionals and corruption. We are now working with it!
For such a person a permanent proclamation is needed. Therefore, to promote the values and principles of a true teacher, this day is celebrated.

“Dear teacher, you have encouraged me at every step of life and been a strong pillar support. It is because of you that I am able to face this world with greater confidence. I bow to you on teachers' day. Thank you for everything.”
