talking to you on the special occasion of Teachers' Day. On this day, we
gratefully remember the great teaches Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, whose dream
was that "Teachers should be the best minds in the country". Hence,
Teachers' Day is very important for all our people, for our students and even
for all the parents. On this day, I would like to recall the teachers who
helped us in shaping our life. In India, Teacher's Day is celebrated on 5th of September, every year.
The date was selected, because it is the birthday of a teacher and the former
President of India - Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. When some of his students
and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate his
birthday, he said, "instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it
would be my proud privilege, if September 5th is observed as Teacher's
day". From then onwards, the 5th of September has been observed as
Teachers Day, in India. Teachers have an influencing role in the life of every student.
What we learn from our teachers remains with us, throughout our life.
