Why Teachers Day is Celebrated on 5th September in India
As we all know 5th of September is celebrated as Teachers Day, as it is the birth anniversary of the second President of India, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Teachers’ day is celebrated since 1962.
Why Teachers day is celebrated
Teachers should be respected and honored. In India, on the eve of Teachers’ Day, i.e. on 5 September, the National Teachers Awards are given to the meritorious teachers by the President of India. The awards are conferred as public gratitude to praiseworthy teachers working in primary schools, middle schools, and secondary schools.
Even according to our Prime Minister Narendra Modi “Teaching is not a profession, a way of life”. Further, he added that teaching is not a profession but “Jeevan Dharm” (a way of life) and asked teachers to understand changes happening across the world so that they can prepare the new generation to face them.
In fact, it is a divine responsibility to guide and enlighten. He also said that India should regain the status of ‘Vishwaguru’ (leader in education) by giving high respect to teachers whom he asked to encourage students to think critically about issues concerning the nation. He told that “Teachers determination and sincerity will shape the destiny of the nation as they are laying the foundation and the building blocks of the society”.
The history behind Why Teachers day is celebrated
Dr. Radhakrishnan became President of India in 1962. He was approached by some of his friends and students who requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday on 5 September. Dr. S. Radhakrishnan responded, “Instead of observing my birthday discretely, it would be my pompous privilege if 5th September is scrutinized as Teachers’ Day”. Such a request coming from the President of India clearly showcased Dr. S. Radhakrishnan’s affection and dedication for teachers. From then onwards, India celebrates Teachers’ Day on 5th September.
On Teachers Day, students hold different activities to entertain teachers at schools and colleges. These activities include singing competition, dance competition, recitation of poems, mimicry of teachers, lots of games children play with teachers, plan a picnic, offer gifts and at last, they thank teachers by expressing their gratitude by wishes.
Teachers Day is a great occasion for celebrating and enjoying the relationship between teachers and students. So, try to meet your teachers on the day and convey your wishes. If they are far then send them a message and make his/her day memorable.
