Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan
Happy Teacher’s Day
5th September is a very important day. Because on this day all the teachers and teachers of India are shown love and respect.
‘No one is educated when they finish the book, to respect everyone more than to educate.’
A virtuous teacher builds a life. A life without education is dead. One teacher gave an example –
“A Good Teacher is like a candle –
it consumes itself
to light the way for others”.
This is to say- ‘A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart’.
APJ Abdul Kalam says – “Teachers are the backbone of any country, the pillar upon which all aspirations are converted into reality.”
Because teachers can build a society, establish the children of the society as citizens and the right people in the base of the world.
Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan was born in Madras, India on September 5, 1888. He was the first Vice-President and Second President of India. Radhakrishnan was one of the brightest examples in the history of education in India. He was a prudent, successful politician, and above all, the best teacher.
“Teachers should be the best mind in the country.”
Because teachers create the future of the future, the country of the future.
In 1962 some humble students of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan came and said, Sir, we want to celebrate your birthday. Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan replied that –
“Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if September 5th is observed as ‘Teacher’s Day’.”
That is, from 1962 till now Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday is celebrated as Teacher’s Day. But one day, by showing respect and love, is it really about showing respect and love for our teacher’s palace! Because one day is not enough to honor them, teachers should be honored 365 days a year. Because a teacher is not a teacher for a day but a teacher for a lifetime.
We conclude with a famous statement of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. He says –
“A life of joy and happiness is possible only on the basis of knowledge and science.”
