Teacher's Day In India
Every year since 1962, Teacher's Day is celebrated on September 5 to commemorate the birthday of second President of India, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. It is a day to show our appreciation and gratitude to our guides and mentors. The students take up some duties of teachers and the school usually organizes a function to celebrate all the 'Gurus'.
Make your teacher a handmade card or an e-card, and let a few words say how much you value their guidance and counsel. We know it's hard, so we curated a list of 50 teacher's day quotes and memes. Now you don't have to scratch your heads for something respectful yet cheeky.
