Teachers’ Day 2022: In ancient history, teachers were extremely important. The Hindu Itihaas contains numerous references to Maharishis and sages who served as true guides and spiritual leaders to the kings of the time.
Every year on September 5, Teacher’s Day is observed as a gesture of thanks for shaping the lives of their students in order to honour and appreciate those gurus and teachers of our modern times. However, different countries observe Teacher’s Day on different dates throughout the year. India commemorates the second President of India, Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, on this day.
History of Teachers’ Day 2022
Teachers’ Day is observed in India on September 5, the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Since he insisted on dedicating his birthday to all teachers, this day has been observed annually since 1962, when he became President of India. He was a brilliant scholar who wanted everyone to understand the critical role that teachers play. His friend, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, said that he was above all a great teacher from whom all of us will continue to learn. After so many years, he is remembered and loved for his contributions to the country.
Significance of Teachers’ Day 2022
There is no denying that teachers play a critical role in assisting students in becoming adults with knowledge and wisdom, thus becoming good human beings and contributing members of society.
Without a doubt, it is an event that students, in particular, look forward to because it allows them to recognise their teachers’ efforts in providing them with true guidance and education. Thus, on the eve of Teacher’s Day, the President of India bestows National Teachers’ Awards on exceptionally well-performing teachers.
