Teachers Day!

In many countries, Teachers' Days are intended to be special days for the appreciation of teachers, and may include celebrations to honor them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general. The date on which Teachers' day is celebrated varies from country to country. Teachers' days are distinct from World Teachers' Day which is officially celebrated across the world on Oct 5.

Did you know whose birthday is celebrated as Teacher’s day in India? Well, it is the birthdate (5 September 1888) of an academic philosopher, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was the second President of India and the first Vice President of India. One of India's most influential scholars of comparative religion and philosophy, Radhakrishnan built a bridge between the East and the West by showing how the philosophical systems of each tradition are comprehensible within the terms of the other.

From the era of the gurus to the modern teaching era, teachers have always set an example in molding us to what we are today. 
Lets all wish our teachers from all over a very Happy Teacher's day!
