Teachers Day was celebrated in our Institute after a gap of 2 (two) years due to Pandemic – Covid 19, on 5th September 2022. Every year 5th September is celebrated as Teachers’ Day in the country. A day dedicated to teachers and their contributions in shaping one’s life, it commemorates the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, a Bharat Ratna recipient and the first Vice President and second President of Independent India. Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born on September 5, 1888.
Dr Radhakrishnan was a Teacher, Scholar par excellence and loved and admired by all his students. Teachers’ Day is celebrated on his birthday since 1962. The day is marked by activities of celebration, thanks giving and remembrance with all Teachers and Students participating. On Teacher’s Day, students across the nation honor the Teachers and gurus in their lives.
