Gurur brahma gurur vishnuh gurur devo maheshvarah
Gurur saakshaat parabrahma tasmai shree gurave namah

Know the Guru to be Brahma himself. He is Vishnu. He is also Shiva. Know Him to be the Supreme Brahman, and offer thy adorations unto that peerless Guru.

A teacher is an architect for a child’s future. Teacher’s day is celebrated on the occasion of the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (September 5, 1888 – April 17, 1975) best known as the man who introduced the thinking of western idealist philosophers into Indian thought. He was an Oxford don who became the first Vice President and the second President of India. Saluting this great man means not only remembering him but paying respects to our teachers.

When he became the President of India in 1962, some of his students and friends requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday on 5th September 5th. He replied, “Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if September 5th is observed as Teacher’s Day.” Since then, Teacher’s Day is celebrated in India on September 5th. Radhakrishnan’s life is a great message to mankind, particularly to the teachers and the students. In fact, one is a learner always.

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, President to give away ‘National Award to Teachers-2005’. National Award to Teachers was instituted in 1958, which is celebrated in our country as the Teacher’s Day in honour of Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, former President of India and a great teacher.

    I don’t think we Indians have any day like teachers day.You know why we celebrate the b-day of a person who was a teacher then became the president of India.I don’t call such a persons b-day a teachers day. Ofcourse we need to respect a teacher for the knowledge he has. What accordin to me a teachers day is when a president becomes a teacher bcoz it is easy to become a president from a teacher “It’s really difficult the other way”.
