WHY TEACHERS’ DAY IS COMMEMORATED ON SEPTEMBER 5
There is a very interesting reason behind it as to why this day is marked on September 5. India’s first Vice-President and second President Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born on September 5, 1888. Before entering into politics, he served as a professor in various colleges for a long time. Besides being a teacher, he was a writer. Dr. Radhakrishnan wrote The Philosophy of Rabindranath Tagore.
One Day when his students requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, he asked them to mark September 5 as Teachers’ Day. This happened in 1962 after he took over as the President of India. He succeeded Rajendra Prasad who served as the first President. So, Teachers’ Day was first observed in 1962 and since then it has always been observed on the birth anniversary of Radhakrishnan.
He was conferred with Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, in 1954. Radhakrishnan was also honoured with honorary membership of the British Royal Order of Merit in 1963. He was also nominated for the Nobel Prize 27 times.
