“Because they trained me with their personal and professional ideologies.” -Judie Manuel
Every year on 5th September we set an event first to Respect and Salute our parents, teachers, and others elders who taught us so many beautiful and hard things which shaped our lives for good reasons. Teachers day is always a special day which reminds me of the challenging days filled with fun at school, college and every day at office or home.
Now going back to the first teacher day celebration dated 1962 is surprising when Sir Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan began serving as the second president of India.
Today nation wide, Indians schools, colleges celebrate teachers day with greeting cards, chocolates, flowers, and performances as children and students showcase their importance towards all the teachers. If you ask each and every student about their teachers they will surely tell about their favorite one and why they play an ideal role in their life.
Comming back to respected Sir Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan actually began to serve India with his esteem position of India’s second President. However, he declined this celebration of “Radhakrishnan day” and said that instead, it would be great and proud that his birthday on 5th September should signify as Teachers Day in India.
Born in 1882 in a town called Tirutani in Andhra Pradesh, Sir Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan wanted his father to take him to work on the role of a priest, this boy’s talents often brought him to join schools in Tirupati and Vellore. He gradually and eventually joined Christian College, Madras, in order to study philosophy, and then this was a big time to make himself, his parents and our country proud with his serving for India as President of India.
Now, this excited me because I feel how important teachers play the role of teaching and molding every child’s dream to come true. I wish all my family elders, cousins, friends, teachers, and Pastors a very Happy Teachers Day. 🙂 Thank you!!!
In fact, I like the verse from the Bible,
“Train up a child in the way he should go:
and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
