The beginning of celebrating Teacher’s Day across the country was on 05 September 1962, when the former President of India, Dr Radhakrishnan reached his office on his birthday and some of his students present there wanted to celebrate this day in a special way. However, then Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan suggested organizing Teacher’s Day on his birthday in honour of the teachers. In this way, Teacher’s Day started being celebrated on 05 September in India.
