Teachers’ Day 2020: It is celebrated on September 5 in India to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan dabbled in various roles, from philosopher to President of India. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s birth anniversary is celebrated as Teacher’s Day on September 5 of every year since 1962.
Let’s take a look at some inspirational and motivational quotes from Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
“When we think we know we cease to learn.”
“The end-product of education should be a free creative man, who can battle against historical circumstances and adversities of nature.”
“The main function of a university is not to grant degrees and diplomas but to develop the university spirit and advance learning. The former is impossible without corporate life, the latter without honours and post-graduate”
“Teachers should be the best mind in the country.”
“A life of joy and happiness is possible only on the basis of knowledge and science.”
Instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege, if 5th September is observed as Teachers’ Day.
