“I always feel joyous and excited on occasion of National (5September) or World (5 October) Teachers’ Day, as I could complete school education to my top education i.e. Ph.D. because of my teachers and also happy that I started my carrier as College Teacher.
In India, from 1962, 5 September is celebrated as Teachers’ Day as on this day in 1888 a great scholar, philosopher, erudite person and statesman Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born. On the other hand, in the world 5 October is celebrated as World Teachers’ Day, which was initiated from 1994. It is pertinent to mention that UNESCO celebrates World Teachers’ Day (WTD) to commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.
This year, World Teachers’ Day (WTD) is celebrated with the theme, “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future.” According to Guy Ryder, the International Labour Organization (ILO) Director-General, “Now is the time to recognize the role of teachers in helping to ensure a generation of students can reach their full potential, and the importance of education for short-term stimulus, economic growth and social cohesion, during and after COVID-19”. World is celebrating Teachers’ Day for their continued commitment to the students and for contributing to the achievement of the 2030 targets under Sustainable Development Goal 4.
According to our former President Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam ji, “Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, calibre, and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me”.
On occasion of World Teachers’ Day, my thoughts are for all the teachers for their selfless service.”
