Why is Teachers day celebrated?
Teachers day is celebrated in order of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the second President of India. In order to celebrate his birthday, his students came up with the idea of have a Radhakrishnan day. But Dr. Radhakrishnan refused it and instead recommended them to celebrate it as teacher's day, as a mark of respect for all the teachers. Hence September 5 of every year came to be celebrated as teacher's day.
On this day, a majority number of schools conduct programs for and by the teachers. However, different schools follow different procedures. This time even the government has taken measures to award teachers today. The Vice - President, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu will confer the National Award to Teachers 2016 at Vigyan Bhawan to give public recognition to meritorious teachers working in primary, middle and secondary schools.
