Thank you for teaching me how to read and write, for guiding me to distinguish between what is wrong and what is right. For allowing me to dream and soar as a kite, thank you for being my friend, mentor, and light.

In many countries, Teachers’ Day to be special days for the appreciation of teachers, and may include celebrations to honor them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general. The date on which Teachers’ Day is celebrated varies from country to country. Teachers’ Days are distinct from World Teachers’ Day which is officially celebrated across the world on October 5.

The idea of celebrating Teachers’ Day took ground in many countries during the 20th century; in most cases, they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education (for example, Argentina has commemorated Domingo Faustino Sarmiento‘s death on September 11 since 1915, while India celebrates Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan‘s birthday on September 5 since 1962). This is the primary reason why countries celebrate this day on different dates, unlike many other International Days.

Teachers’ Day of India: 5th September

A good teacher has greater influence in shaping the life of an individual even more than his/her parents. In our country’s culture, a teacher has been given a place above the almighty god. A good teacher’s proper guidance and support are very important in achieving one’s goal in life. Every successful individual always remembers the constructive role played by his/her teacher in their school-college days.

A teacher’s job is sometimes a thankless job; a teacher works in a most honest way while performing his/ her duties towards shaping the careers of students, also apart from academics, other personal or extra-curricular activities of students are taken care of by him. A student can rely on his/her teacher for guidance on each and every aspect of his/her life, and a good teacher never disappoints his pupils.

Teachers’ Day is celebrated every year on the 5th of September to honor and acknowledge the contribution made by countless numbers of teachers in helping and molding the careers of lakhs of students and in turn shaping the destiny of India.

Origin of Teacher’s Day Celebration

The day was marked for the celebration as Teachers’ Day since 1962 in respect and deference of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was born on 5th September 1988. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a great scholar, philosopher, and teacher of modern India and was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 1954. He became the second President of India in 1962. Therefore it was only natural that his birthday would be celebrated to pay respect towards lakhs of unknown teachers across the country. It was his wish that instead of celebrating his birthday on the 5th of September every year, it would be better to celebrate it as Teachers’ Day in the whole of India.

India’s teacher’s day is different from World Teacher Day which is celebrated on the 5th of October every year in the whole world.

Mode of Celebration:

On this day in every school of the country, students arrange and perform various types of cultural programs and activities as a token of love and respect towards their teachers. Outstanding teachers are also given prizes for their contribution to the development of schools and bringing good results from students.

Students also give personal gifts to their favorite teachers to express their affection and gratitude. A life-long bond is developed among teachers and students. Teachers also feel special as their hard work and honesty are recognized on this day.

The role of teachers in the making of a nation is most important and significant; therefore it is necessary that we pay our utmost respect and gratitude to them and celebrate the 5th of September as a day of special teacher-student bonding.

PM Modi’s Speech on Teachers Day 2015

As per the Media report: PM Modi has addressed the mass of students on teachers day 2015 a day before the 5th of September means on the 4th of September between 10am and 11.45am. He has given his speech a day before as the 5th of September is a holiday in 2015 due to the Janmashtami festival.

He has interacted with the students all across the country on the 4th of September in order to share some tips on public speaking. He answered the question of a student (“How have you achieved such mastery in oratory?”), who was very curious to know how the PM gives speeches without a script. PM Modi answered that “To be a good orator, you need to be a good listener. You need to listen with your eyes and your mind,”. He also motivated the students by saying that “Don’t worry about what people will say. Don’t be nervous. You should be confident,”.

He said that what you want to say just write down “That will help you sharpen your speech,”. He also suggested students take help from Google and YouTube and said that “You are google guru Vidyarthi (students) after all. If you see other speeches online, you will gain confidence,”.

He was also questioned by a student about leadership for which he answered, “To be a leader, you should be attached to people. Their pain should give you sleepless nights,”. He urged students to think for, ”why they would want to become leaders”, “for happiness, elections or to solve problems.”

The controversy around PM Modi’s Teachers’ Day Speech on 5 September 2014

Though the children of India have been celebrating Teacher’s Day as a day when they express their love and respect for their teachers and in turn teachers also show their affection for their pupils, but this year’s Teachers’ Day on 5th of September 2014 is in news for a reason other than a simple student-teacher event.

As per the directives of the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry all government and private schools across the country were asked by the Government to ensure and arrange for PM Narendra Modi’s live televised Teachers’ Day speech and interaction with school children at the Manekshaw Auditorium in Delhi.

The said directive also stated that schools will have to arrange for televisions, cable connections, and projectors, etc. so that students can also see the question-and-answer session which will be telecast live on Doordarshan between 3 pm to 4.45 pm.

Controversial Directive:

But the directive is being criticized by some schools and opposition parties on the ground that the school children cannot compulsorily be forced to remain in school till 5 pm to watch PM’s speech. Opposition parties are suggesting that the timing of speech should be changed to suit school hours so that small school children will not have to remain in school till evening.

Furthermore, another problem which is being faced by school authorities is that at such short notice they are finding it difficult to arrange technical instruments needed for the live telecast of the Speech as all schools of the country are not well equipped with modern telecommunication instruments and infrastructure.

One more question which is of significance is whether school children can be asked to compulsorily watch and listen to PM’s speech. Though PM of the country has every right to address the students and children of the nation but making them listen to it compulsorily seems unwarranted.

For instance, when PM makes his speech to the nation on the 15th of August or on 26th January every year, it is not compulsory for anyone to listen to it and everyone is at his or her liberty to either listen to it or not. Then why Teachers’ day speech of the PM is being made compulsory for school children across the country?

Hopefully, the controversies around Teachers’ Day will not affect the auspiciousness of the day which is being celebrated every year on 5th of September in the memory of a great educationist and scholar President Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan and the sanctity and usefulness of Teacher’s Day will not be marred in pointless political controversies.

It would be better if Teachers’ Day remains as a day of Teacher-Student bonding of love and respect as it has always been.

Very good morning to the Principal, respected teachers and my dear colleagues. We are here today to celebrate the most honorable occasion of Teachers day. Really it is an honorable occasion to all the students all over India. It is observed every year to pay respect to the teachers from their obedient students. So, dear friends come on and join this celebration to pay heartily respect to our own teachers.

Teacher’s day is celebrated all across India every year on the 5th of September to pay tribute to the teachers for their precious contributions in our study as well as towards the society and country. There is a great reason behind the celebration of the teacher’s day on the 5th of September. Actually, the 5th of September is the birthday of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. He was a great person and highly devoted to education. He was well known as the scholar, diplomat, Vice President of India, President of India and most importantly the Teacher. After his selection as the Indian President in 1962, he was asked and requested by the students to get permission to celebrate his birthday on 5thof September. However, he replied that, instead of celebrating the 5th of September as my personal birthday, it would be better if it is dedicated to the whole teaching profession. And 5th of September should be celebrated as teachers’ day all over India to pay honor to the teaching profession.

For all students of India, Teachers’ Day is like an occasion and opportunity to pay tribute and gratitude to their teachers for their continuous, selfless and precious efforts in shaping the future. They are the reason to enrich all the quality education system in the country and process it continuously without getting tired. Our teachers never consider us less than their own children and teach us from their hearts. As kids, we need inspiration and motivation which we surely get from our teachers. They prepare us to tackle any bad situation of life through knowledge and patience. Dear teachers, we are really grateful to all of you and would be forever.

Teachers Day Speech 3

Good morning to the respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends. As we all know that we are here to celebrate teachers’ day today. My self, _______ studying in class __ would like to speech on the occasion of Teachers Day. But first of all, I would like to thank my class teacher to offer me such a great opportunity to speech on teachers’ day. The title of my speech is, why teachers are so important in our life.

In India, teachers’ day is celebrated by the students on the 5th of September every year. It is the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishan. His birth date is being celebrated as teachers’ day every year from the time when he became President of India in 1962 after the student’s request.

Teachers really play key roles in education and student’s life. Teachers generally become a person with proper vision, knowledge, and experience. The teaching profession is a profession of great responsibility than any other job. The teaching profession has a great impact on the growth, development and well being of the students and nation. According to the Madan Mohan Malavia (founder of Banaras Hindu University), a teacher is “…….It Lies Largely In His Teacher’s Hand To Mould The Mind Of The Child Who Is Father Of The Man. If He Is Patriotic And Devoted To The National Cause And Realizes His Responsibility, He Can Produce A Race Of Patriotic Men And Women Who Would Religiously Place The Country Above The Community And National Gain Above Communal Advantage.”

There are many precious roles of teachers in the education of students, society, and country. The growth and development of the people, society, and country is solely depending on the quality of education which can be given by a good teacher. Good quality education is very necessary to all to fulfill the need of politicians, doctors, engineers, businessmen, farmers, artists, scientists, etc in the country. Teachers have to continue hard works and go through a variety of books, articles, etc to put thorough knowledge needed to society. They guide their students all the time and tell the path to make a good career. There were many ideal teachers in India who have set themselves as role models for the upcoming teachers.

An ideal teacher becomes courteous all the time without being impartial and not affected by insult. Teachers are like parents in the school for all students. They do their best to maintain the health and concentration levels of the students. They motivate students to participate in extracurricular activities also besides studies in order to improve students’ minds level.

I am going to recite some well said quotes on education, students and teachers by the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi during his interaction with students on the Teachers’ Day:

  • “Education should become a force for the nation’s character building.”
  • “Dialogue with students: Enjoy childhood. Don’t let the child in you die.”
  • “We must restore respect for the teacher in our society.”
  • “Can’t India dream of exporting good teachers?”
  • “Children can contribute to nation-building through cleanliness, saving electricity and water.”

Students pay honor to their teachers for selfless effort in shaping the career and enriching the education system all over the country.

Teachers’ day is celebrated as a special event in many countries at different dates. In China, it is celebrated on the 10th of September every year.

It is also like an appreciation to the new teachers to become a responsible teacher in the future towards education. As being a student, I always would be grateful to all the teachers in my life.
