Today, 5th September is an important date for India. This date is celebrated as Teachers' Day in India since 1962. It's the birthday of Dr. Radhakrishnan (5-Sep-1888), an Indian philosopher and statesman, 1st Vice-President of India and 2nd President of India. He was awarded the highest civilian award in India, the Bharat Ratna and honorary membership of the British Royal Order of Merit. He believed that Teachers held the key to society's education and development. Hence, his birthday is celebrated as Teachers' Day in India since 1962.

You know I didn't know.

But how wonderful this day exist's.
Teachers to me are the 'salt of the earth'.... and give
so others can have a good life.I wish I had become one, often.
I knew there was a teachers' day, but I didn't know when it was, and which countries take part.
I hadn't heard about it until now. What a great opportunity to pay homage to those who helped us learn.
I sure do. I'm a teacher. I often look forward for this day. You get a chance to see how much of what students have really absorbed. Even though they may do well in tests, its good to see students step into the teaching role to experience what teachers experience.
Now I do. Thank you for teaching me about it. :)
