In India, today, 5th September, is observed as Teacher's Day.
This is after the birthday of Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, a former President of India, a savant and professor of philosophy.
So its a special day for educational institutions, teachers and students. Teacher's Day is observed without fail in schools across India. In various ways, and often very humorously, students express their regard and love for their teachers.
The teacher-student relation is a profound one. And on 5th Sepetmber every year, people are reminded of this.
