A Glance: Institution of Teachers’ Day in India.

Teachers‘ Day 2020: In India, Teachers‘ Day is celebrated annually on September 5 to mark the birthday of the country’s former President, scholar, philosopher, and Bharat Ratna awardee, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on this day in 1888.

So, Teachers’ Day was first observed in 1962 and since then it has always been observed on the birth anniversary of Radhakrishnan. Dr. Radhakrishnan was conferred with the Bharat Ratna in 1954.

Teachers play the most important role in shaping one’s life and building his or her future. Apart from the family, a child is raised in, teachers are the closest to them and share a special bond with their students. Teachers not only prepare their students for excelling in professional life, but also for personal life.

On the occasion of Teachers’ Day, cultural programs are organized in schools. Students on this day give cards and flowers to honor them. However, this year, Teachers’ Day will not be celebrated in schools and colleges because of the COVID-19 situation.
