The president also added, "A characteristic feature of our culture and heritage has been the Guru-Shishya Parampara. We are very fortunate and blessed as a civilization to have always had, since time immemorial, great gurus who have led seekers of truth to their goal."

The Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces concluded by saying, "Let us pray, on this auspicious day, that our Gurus continue to help and guide us, individually and collectively, in building a nation and world defined by wisdom, peace and harmony."

Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who is an Indian philosopher and statesmen, is one amongst the most distinguished 20th century scholars. He always believes that "teachers should be the best minds in the country". For this reason, his birthday is being celebrated as Teachers' Day in India though the world celebrates Teachers' Day on October 5.

Radhakrishnan is also known for holding many positions along with the titles of the second president of India and the first vice president of India. He also served as an ambassador to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). He was conferred with Bharat Ratna in 1954 for his remarkable works in philosophy, education and other areas.
