There is no question that teaching is a great vocation that merits just as much love and respect as any other. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday, September 5, is commemorated each year in India with Teachers’ Day 2022. He was a Bharat Ratna winner, academic, and former president of India. Students around the nation will honor and respect their teachers on Teachers’ Day 2022. On September 5, special events are also planned in several schools to honor Teachers’ Day. The celebration of Teachers’ Day in 2022 serves as a reminder of the crucial role that educators play in developing the most talented citizens of our nation.
Who are teachers?
Some individuals think that teaching children appropriate behavior and moral judgment is their primary responsibility as educators. On the other side, teachers act as the children’s second parents. As they do with their children, they are the ones who reprimand the students when anything is incorrect. The life of the students in their care is significantly shaped by the teachers as well.
A teacher might have a better understanding of a student’s condition in life by speaking with them. Some of them come from dysfunctional families, while others lack parents and reside with close family members. Sometimes when students are having issues at school, the teacher will act as a second parent and decide to visit the student’s house to try to find a solution. Teachers can better understand why their students act in diverse ways by visiting them in their homes.
History of Teacher’s Day
In 1962, Dr. Radhakrishnan was elected president of India. Some of his friends and pupils contacted him and begged him to let them celebrate his birthday on September 5. In response, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan said, “Instead of quietly celebrating my birthday, it would be my haughty honor if September 5th is scrutinized as Teachers’ Day.” The fact that the Indian President made such a request demonstrates Dr. S. Radhakrishnan’s love and commitment to teachers. Since that day, September 5 has been honored in India as Teachers’ Day.
Students organize a variety of events to amuse instructors at schools and universities on Teachers Day. These include singing and dancing competitions, poetry recitals, impersonations of teachers, a variety of games that kids play with instructors, picnic planning, gift-giving, and, finally, expressing thanks to teachers. We need to instill a sense of security in our students, and we must always project love instead of fear. By being responsible and making an effort in their studies, students may succeed in life and make their parents and teachers proud of them. Students should respect their lecturers in return.
Why do we celebrate Teacher’s Day?
In India, Teachers’ Day is observed on September 5 to honor Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s birth anniversary. He was a well-known academic, the first Vice-President and second President of independent India, and he was awarded the Bharat Ratna. His birthday is September 5, 1888. In addition to being a well-known diplomat, academician, and most significantly, an excellent teacher, he advocated enlightenment as an educator.
An adage states that a country’s destiny is in its children, and teachers, in their role as mentors, may mold their students into future leaders who would steer India’s direction. They are essential to our lives because they help us succeed professionally and financially. They help us become better individuals, contributors to society, and ambassadors for our country. To recognize the difficulties, challenges, and unique responsibilities that teachers play in our lives, we commemorate Teacher’s Day.
What is the significance of Teacher’s Day in everyone’s life?
One such occasion that both students and teachers look forward to is Teachers Day. The Day is significant for the kids because it offers them the chance to appreciate the work that their teachers do to make sure they receive a quality education. Similar to kids, teachers anticipate the Teachers’ Day celebration as their efforts are honored by both students and other organizations.
In certain cases, students will freely tell their teacher about a difficulty they are having at home. Teachers act as second parents for their students, providing them with the necessary direction. A student will have more faith in their teacher if they perceive that they are valued by the teacher. Less time is spent at home than at school by students.
Teacher’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to appreciate and celebrate the bond between educators and students. So, make an effort to speak with your professors that day and express your wishes. If they are far away, leave them a letter to make their day.
