Teachers’ Day commemorates the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan and his notable contributions to the cause of education. On this day, we also recall and acknowledge the countless teachers of our nation who were and continue to be our guiding light. Teachers’ Day is a tribute to the unnoticed hardwork and dedication of all ‘teachers, gurus, masterjis, sirs and ma’ams’.
It is a day to express our gratitude towards them. Let us thank all our beloved teachers because of whom we are who we are today.
