Teacher’s Day 2013 Celebration in India

Teacher’s Day 2013 Celebration in India

Indians have great respect for teaches as they give us knowledge and show right path to get success in life. Earlier we used to call teachers as ‘Gurus’ which is now replaced by ‘Sir’ or ‘Madam’. They are the guiding light in our life and are responsible for our overall development. So, in India, people celebrate 5th September as Teacher’s day to give a tribute to all the teachers for their contribution. 5th September is the birth date of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan who was a great teacher, scholar, diplomat and president of India.

Dr. Radhakrishanan became the president of India in 1962. That time, some of his students came and requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday. But instead of giving permission to celebrate his birthday alone, Dr. Radhakrishnan said his students to celebrate 5th September as Teacher’s day. It was his love towards teaching profession. Since then, Indians celebrate Teacher’s day on 5th September every year.

So, on teacher’s day, we show our respect and gratitude towards teachers and give them thanks for their hard work and devotion.

It is also a great fun to celebrate teacher’s day in schools. On this day, students dress up as their teachers and take lectures in classes. Sometimes, teachers sit as students in classes and their students take lectures. This helps teachers to relive their school days. In schools, students organize functions to make the day more special for their teachers. They give dance performances, show dramas, sing songs and present various other programs to entertain their teachers. Students also show their love towards their teachers by giving gifts and cards to them.

So, both students and teachers enjoy this day together and have lot of fun. This day also provide a way to have healthy interaction between teachers and students.
