Teaching is the most prestigious profession around the globe. India has a long tradition of Guru-Shishya relationships in which the Guru is revered more than God or one's parents. Every year on September 5th, India celebrates Teachers' Day to commemorate the birth anniversary of our second president, Dr. Sarveapalli Radhakrishnan (1962-67). Dr. S. RadhaKrishnan was a well-known academician and a popular teacher among his students. World Teacher's Day is observed every year on October 5th to commemorate the anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 International Labor Organization (ILO/UNESCO Recommendation Concerning the Status of Teachers. UNESCO began these celebrations in 1994 to honor teachers and teaching professionals. Teachers must be credited and recognized for their valuable contributions to the development of good citizens. They are frequently the children's second mothers because they spend the majority of their time at school rather than at home

Teachers are the creators of society. They are the builders of nations. Their impacts on their students cannot be quantified in any way. Teachers have a profound impact on their students' personalities and lives from kindergarten to university, and sometimes even beyond. A good teacher's importance can never be overstated. A teacher-student relationship is the most selfless of all relationships because the teacher gives with no expectation of receiving anything in return. They serve as role models, inspire, guide, mentor, and encourage, and are similar to parents outside the home.

Teachers' Day is a day to recognize and celebrate educators' contributions to educating and empowering society. The concept of Teacher's Day itself is relatively new, having taken root in many countries in the nineteenth century. However, it spread like wildfire and spread far and fast. There are several Teacher's Days celebrated around the world. In fact, every week, there is most likely at least one Teacher's Day somewhere in the world. Many of these Teacher's Days honor a native educator or a significant educational milestone. Teachers would spend a significant amount of time analyzing our compositions and looking for the smallest flaws.

About Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan

In India, however, Teacher's Day is an annual event celebrated on September 5th. This date commemorates the birth of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the country's second President. He was a renowned scholar and one of India's most distinguished comparative religion and philosophy scholars. He was a professor of philosophy at the University of Mysore, the King George V Chair of Mental and Moral Science at the University of Calcutta, and the Spalding Professor of Eastern Religion and Ethics at the University of Oxford during his lifetime.

Celebrating this honorable profession is critical in a country where parents are obsessed with their children becoming doctors or engineers.

Days like this help to solidify the value of teachers and inspire more people across the country to enter the profession and begin shaping the leaders of tomorrow.

Importance of Teacher's Day

Teaching is regarded as one of the noblest professions because it contributes to a more educated population in the world. Teachers choose careers in order to spread knowledge and wisdom. Only educated labor forces can propel the country to the developed stage. This requires a well-educated individual with proper guidance and visions. A teacher not only teaches students about textbook lessons but also shapes a child into a socially responsible individual. They serve as role models for many people and are well-liked by society as a whole. Do you understand the significance of Teachers' Day? And why should they be given more credit? Here are a few examples:

  • They make learning creative in order for their students to quickly understand and imbibe the knowledge.
  • Teachers are always an inspiration to students and give motivation to them in every step.
  • As a result, students, teachers, and mentors are all under stress. As a result, they must be respected.
  • Teachers are the best sources of inspiration and magicians for their students.
  • They are more tolerant of dealing with all types of students in a class.

Teachers' Day greetings are now sent via email, WhatsApp messages, or Facebook posts. In every relationship, technology has surpassed the personal touch, and the teacher-student relationship is no exception. Information sources have also changed. Previously, we would consult books and well-read teachers. We had no one except our teachers to clear up our doubts and provide us with research leads, which they did so kindly and willingly. For students, online tutorials and video lectures are now the preferred options. We used to spend hours in the library reading and researching; now, Google provides all of the information you need in seconds. 

However, the credibility of information obtained via the internet cannot be guaranteed. Finally, for verification and validation, one must turn to a teacher. As a result, it is safe to say that teachers are, will be, and have always been irreplaceable.

"Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber, and future of an individual," said Dr. Abdul Kalam, former President of India. Perhaps no truer words on education have ever been spoken. To be fair, teaching is more than just a profession. Teachers are more than just employees. They are intimately involved in the raising of a child. If it takes a village to raise a child, teachers make up a large portion of that village. Parents may assist us in taking our first steps, but it is teachers who assist us in finding our wings.
