Teachers’ day is celebrated to express our gratitude and appreciate the hard work of our Teachers. Teachers’ Day in India is observed on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan that falls on 5th of September every year.
This great son of India was a teacher and later he became the Vice-President of Indian Republic. On the death of Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan became the President.
We, the students, are very proud to pay our respect to that great Teacher-President on this day. We pay our respect to our own teachers as well. Our teachers inspire us the same way as Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan inspired his students. They love us and are always anxious to help us.

We owe more to our teachers than we owe to even our parents. Our teachers help us stride forward, build our character and prepare us to face life.
On Teachers’ Day we thank our dear teachers. We express our love and gratefulness on the occasion of Teachers Day. On this day we also promise to be worthy citizens of India.
