    Smile Teacher's Day

    Teacher's Day in India is celebrated on September 5, every year. Indian Teachers Day is dedicated to Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education and was one of the greatest scholars and teachers of all times, apart from being the President of India. As a tribute to this great teacher, his birthday is observed as Teachers Day in India. This is not a holiday but is known for celebrations across the country. It marks the birth anniversary of former Indian president and teacher Dr. S.Radhakrishnan.

    During his tenure as a president, he was approached by his students and friends and was asked to celebrate 5th September, his birthday. He rather told them to observe this day as the Teacher's Day. From then onwards, this day is celebrated as the Teacher's Day.

    Since times immemorial, Indians have respected their teachers. Earlier we used to call our teachers 'Guru'. And now it's the modern 'Sir' or 'Madam'. Nonetheless, the role of teachers has remained the same. They were and they are our guides, creating conditions conducive to our overall development. And we students will always be thankful for their
    constructive support. As an expression of our thanks, we celebrate Teacher's Day in India.

    On Teacher's day schools students dress up as their teachers and take lectures in classes that are assigned to the teachers they represent. Sometimes teachers sit in their classes as students, reliving again the time when they themselves were students. Thus, both students as well as teachers get to understand each other's position. Also, functions
    are organized in schools on Teacher's Day. Students present various programs for the entertainment of their teachers. In addition to being the day when the efforts of teachers are recognized, it provides a chance for healthy interaction between students and teachers.

    The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes,
    and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.
