Teachers Day in India Since 1962, India has been celebrating Teacher\'s Day on 5th September. The day commemorates the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakhrishnan, a philosopher and a teacher, and his mindflex contribution to the field of education. Dr. Radhakrishnan believed that \"teachers should be the best minds in the country\". Teachers are the cornerstones of our future and act as foundation for creating responsible citizens and good human beings. This is celebrated to show our acknowledgement and recognition of the hard work put in by our teachers towards our development. On this day,Students look forward to Teacher’s Day with a lot of anticipation, for the sheer spirit of the occasion.

It is an equally special day for teachers, as they get to know how much they are liked and appreciated by their students.
