In India, the Teachers Day is commemorated on 5th September to mark the birthday of former President, scholar, philosopher, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Throughout the country, not only the school students but the elders too honor and pay tribute to their teachers. Teachers are greeted by sending gifts, greetings cards, messages, etc.
Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born in Andhra Pradesh in 1888. He was the first Vice-president and the Second President of India. He was also an educator and highly regarded by his students.

The President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, has greeted teachers across the country on the eve of Teachers’ Day.
In a message, the President has said, “Teachers’ Day is observed on the birthday of a great educationist, philosopher, and former President of India, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. I extend my warm greetings and best wishes to all teachers’ on the occasion of Teachers’ Day.
Teachers’ Day is an occasion when we honor the dedicated services of all the teachers who play a leading role in the intellectual and moral development of our children. In Indian tradition, teachers are placed on the same pedestal as God.
During the COVID-19 global pandemic, the pedagogy adopted by the teachers also underwent a major change. During the lockdown, our teachers accepted every challenge associated with the introduction of the online medium of education. They took effective steps to enable uninterrupted education of the students.
On this occasion, let us all express our gratitude to the entire teaching community for its invaluable contribution towards building a strong and prosperous nation”.
