Teacher’s day is a national festival, which is celebrated all over India. Teacher’s day is celebrated on the September 5, every year because it is the birthday of Dr. Sarvapalli Radakrishnan, who was the former president of India.
Dr. Sarvapalli Radakrishnan was born on September 5, 1888. He was a philosopher, educationalist, humanist and a religious thinker. He wrote many books on religion and philosophy.
He taught as a professor of philosophy in several famous universities such as Mysore, Chennai, Kolkata and Oxford University in London. He was also appointed as the Chairman of University Grants Commission (UGC) in the year 1949 and being a teacher he always loved the teacher’s community.

Dr. Sarvapalli Radakrishnan told his country men to celebrate his birthday as a teacher’s day. So, since the year 1962, the 5 September is always celebrated as teacher’s day.
Mother is always the first teacher for the child; the next one is the teacher who teaches us. According to Baghvadgitha the teacher is considered as God.
Since from the childhood there are many teachers who molded our nature. Teacher is the only one who prepares us to become better citizens of tomorrow. Teacher is the only one who is remembered throughout the life. The impression of the teacher is very deep and loving.
Teacher’s day highlights the role of teacher in our society unlike other professions; teacher exerts a tremendous influence upon the society. It is in there hands to create or destroy the future of our land.
In our school we celebrate teacher’s day very grandly. On that day students give garlands, flowers and surprising gifts e.t.c to their teachers.
On teachers day students sing songs, dance and even do skits for the teachers.
The captain of our school gives the speech about the significance of the teacher’s day and awards are also given to the good teachers to encourage them.
At last the principal of our school encourages all the students of the school with good wishes and blessings. In the lunch hours the students offer their teachers with some snacks, and tea and thus we celebrate it as the teacher’s day.
The teacher student’s relationship is not divine as it was before, many changes have taken place; a teacher is no longer a selfless guru. The teacher’s are the payed employee, just like any other worker working in an office or a factory. Nowadays the importance of a teacher is declining due to favoritism.
In the pat times the teacher used to punish the students and there was a meaning. But now everything is reversed. It is difficult to expect the society to honor the teachers.
At present it is necessary for the teachers to overcome these problems and to uphold their own dignity. But we as the students should know the importance of teacher’s day and should respect them. I once again wish all my teachers a happy teacher’s day.

“Good morning dear guests of our today’s holiday.
As we all know, the reason that gathered us is the Teacher’s Day. We are glad to see each of the teachers on this day. These are the people whose hard work, continuous efforts, and creative approach cannot be overestimated. Today, on October 5, we are glad to give our warm regards to the teachers in every corner of the globe as long as today is not simply the Teacher’s Day but the World Teachers’ Day.
On such a nice and sunny, despite the autumn season, day we would like to wish lots of enjoyable memories, strong health, and also more time for the real rest. We do appreciate the work you have done and continue to do. Nerves of steel and heart of gold are the two things which comprise a character of a good teacher. It is a big pleasure to admit that all the teachers of our school manifest both of these features.
I remember the day when I first came to school and was extremely nervous about everything new that waited for me. It was my teacher who gave me that sparkle of light that has been my leading light during all the period of studies. However, the teacher was not only my mentor, but my friend, advisor, and motivator. I deeply appreciate all the words that were said to me: both praise and critique were so important to my development.
The teacher is a person who gives children a space for a flight instead of limiting their moves. This is the thing that inspires me even today. What is more, those lessons translated into the wisdom which I share with my own children today. Perhaps, there were some misunderstandings between us, nevertheless, I can tell with an absolute confidence that it was the teacher who put the most worthy knowledge into my and my peers’ heads. In addition to this, the teacher taught us to stay confident, make our own mistakes, and learn from them. For that reason, it is fair enough to say that the teachers around the world are the ones who make a magnificent contribution to the development and further advancement of whole generations and thus, the future of our world – our children.
To sum up, we would like to ask our dear teachers to stay the best ones, as usual, to be patient and wise all the time as far as this is what motivates your colleagues and students. We are extremely lucky to have you, and we do appreciate everything you do. As for us, we would also try to support you and be thoughtful as you are the light of wisdom and true prudence for us. Thank You.”
