AGARTALA, Sep 4 (TIWN): Like every year, Tripura has geared up to celebrate Teachers' Day on September 5. The practice of students-teaching-students has been observed today across schools in the state ahead of Teachers' Day.

Teachers' Day is a special day 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 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.

It was his wish that instead of celebrating his birth day on 5th of September every year, it would be better to celebrate it as Teachers’ Day in whole of India.
