Teacher's Day celebrates the crucial role teachers play in our lives. From shaping up one's character to teaching them the art of living well, teachers play a pivotal role in making us a better person. Every year, September 5 is observed as Teachers' Day in India to mark the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. For the uninitiated, Dr Radhakrishnan was a philosopher, scholar, an exemplary teacher and a politician, who dedicated a major part of his life in cultivating and nurturing young minds. On the occasion of Teacher's Day today, while the country remembers legendary teachers like Rabindranath Tagore, Chanakya, APJ Abdul Kalam, Television celebs too shared their thoughts about their teachers and wished a happy teacher's day.
