On 5 September each year, India celebrates it’s Teachers’ Day. To honor the teachers in our lives, Google has dedicated a doodle to it. It has a red octopus conducting a class underwater as little fishes take lessons. The chalk board has different sections dedicated to Mathematics, Chemistry and Music. The teacher (octopus) stands in the middle while imparting knowledge, collecting home work, solving equations, etc.

India celebrates 5 September as Teachers’ Day every year on the birth anniversary of former President of India Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He is remembered as a remarkable teacher and a great educationist. He was born on 5 September 1888 in Tamil Nadu.

Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was awarded the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian honour in the country, in 1954 and was nominated 27 times for the Nobel Prize. He wrote ‘The Philosophy of Rabindranath Tagore’ and he dedicated 40 years of his life to teaching. He taught at several noted educational institutions, including Chennai's Presidency College and Calcutta University.

46 chosen teachers from across the country will be felicitated today in the 61st National Teachers’ Awards event in New Delhi. These teachers will be felicitated by President Ram Nath Kovind and the list has already been relrased by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The ministry had invited nominations for the award between 6 May and 25 June 2019.
