September 5th

From the pages of The Times of India:

When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the President of India in 1962, some of his students and friends requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, September 5. He replied, "Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilage if September 5 is observed as Teacher's Day." Since then, Teacher's Day is celebrated to acknowledge the contribution teachers make to our lives.
Thank you, teacher.
