Teachers Day

Today Sept. 5th is celebrated as Teachers Day . It has been chosen as it the birthday of Dr S Radhakrishnan the second President of India, who was a great teacher .

It is a teachers appreciation day.A day to have fun with your teachers. In most schools normal classes are suspended and the students relax with their teachers. They bring them cards, flowers and gifts.The upper class schools organize parties and gifts for the academics.Many social organizations and government bodies give away teacher awards
