Teacher’s day


Teachers have an influencing role in the life of every student. They are like beacons of light, guiding us in the formative years of our life. Teachers mould us and in the process and shape our future. What we learn from our teachers remains with us, throughout our life. However, very often, we fail to show our appreciation and gratitudefor their altruistic devotion. Teachersdo need encouragement and supportfrom the community to feel that their efforts are being recognized. Toserve the purpose, Teacher’s Day is celebrated throughout the world, year by year. By celebrating NationalTeacher’s Day, we thank our teachers for providing us their invaluable guidance.
The festival is celebrated on different dates in different countries.In India, Teacher’s Day (also called Teachers’ Appreciation Day or National Teacher’s Day) is celebratedon 5th of September, every year. The date was selected, because it is the birthday of a timeless teacher and the former President of India – Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. When some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, he said, “instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege, if September 5th is observed as Teacher’s day”. From then onwards, the 5th of September has been observed as Teachers Day, in India.
Since Teacher’s Day is observed on different dates in different countries of the world, the celebrations also vary. In many countries, cultural programs are held, which may include singing competitions, dance and play performances. The studentswould offer flowers, greeting cards and gifts as the token of affection, tothe teachers. The latest trend is to organize Teacher’s Day party. Students are keen about throwing a lavish party for their teachers, to show how much they care and respect them. The occasion can be celebrated in myriad other ways as well. Whatever the way you have chosen to amuse your teacher, it should convey your message to him/her, very convincingly.
