In 1962, when Dr. Radhakrishnan assumed the role of India’s President, his students and admirers wanted to celebrate his birthday. In a humble gesture, he suggested that instead of celebrating his birthday, the day should be dedicated to honouring teachers. He believed that educators played a crucial role in shaping the future of a nation.
Teachers’ Day is not just a day of appreciation but also a day to reflect on the profound impact teachers have on our lives. Dr. Radhakrishnan’s legacy reminds us of the importance of education and the pivotal role teachers play in nurturing young minds. His vision and dedication continue to inspire generations, making Teachers’ Day a heartfelt tribute to all educators who light the path of knowledge.
Hon’ble President of India Smt. Droupadi Murmu will confer the National Teachers’ Award 2023 to 75 awardees on 5th September 2023, on the occasion of Teachers' Day, the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
