Though it is not a holiday, classes in schools across India are not held as usual but are replaced by other celebratory events and thanks and remembrances.

"Teachers' Day is celebrated to appreciate and honour teachers for their contribution to society as well as imparting knowledge, guiding and shaping the minds and careers of students," said a post on the new website.

"Teachers play a major role in influencing and moulding a child's life as children in their formative and impressionable years spend a lot of time at school. Whatever a child learns at this time stays with him all his life."

Assam is organising various events on September 5 headed by the education minister at the state level.

At the district level, deputy commissioners will head the activities, while at the institutional level, principals and headmasters will look over the celebrations, according to information available in the new website.
