Teachers’ Day 2022: Every student's life is significantly influenced by their teachers. Students are not only given education or knowledge, but also crucial values and advice that aid in their development as better people. Every year on September 5, India observes Teachers' Day to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Sarvopalli Radhakrisnan, the nation's first vice president. When some of his students visited Dr. Radhakrishna to wish him a happy birthday in 1962, the custom of observing his birthday as Indian Teachers' Day was born. He urged them to observe this day (September 5) as a way to honour all of India's legendary teachers. The day is a reminder of the role that teachers play in nation-building by guiding and educating the brightest minds of our country.
