Teacher’s Day: September 5 in India, October 5 for the world……………

Teacher’s Day in India is held on September 5, on the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, India’s second President and an extremely respected scholar and teacher of philosophy. It is the day that Indians honour the teachers for their immense contribution to the country and the community.
The idea of celebrating Teachers’ Day took ground independently in various countries during the 20th century. In most countries, people celebrate a local educator. For example, Argentina commemorates educationist Domingo Faustino Sarmiento’s death on September 11 since 1915,
However, the World Teachers’ Day is observed exactly a month later, on October 5.
