Teacher’s Day 2021 is celebrated in India on 5th September 2021 and is an important day for teachers and students. It is the day we celebrate to commemorate the birth anniversary of one of India’s prominent educators and First Vice-President of India, Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan.
Additionally, Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan also served as the second President of India. He was celebrated in academia and was also known for his philosophy of Neo-Vedanta.
Why do we celebrate Teacher’s Day?
Like Guru Purnima, Teacher’s Day is widely celebrated across India to honour teachers of our country. When Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan became the President of India in 1962, his students wanted to celebrate his birthday on 5th September. Instead, he said that the day must be celebrated as Teacher’s Day across India.
Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan was also the recipient of many honours and awards like the Bharat Ratna, knighthood, honorary member of the British Royal Order of Merit, etc. Moreover, he also started a non-profit organization, Helpage India to help the poor and downtrodden in India.
