New Delhi: Google celebrated Teachers’ Day 2019 with an animated doodle on Thursday, marking the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.

Radhakrishnan, who served as the first Vice President of India (1952–1962) and second President of India (1962–1967), was born on September 5, 1888. He was a staunch believer of education.

 

It is believed that in 1962, when Dr Radhakrishnan assumed the Presidential office, some of his former students came to visit him and requested to celebrate his birthday with them.

To which Dr Radhakrishnan replied that he would be honoured if people observed September 5 as Teachers’ Day instead.

Since then, the nation celebrates Teachers’ Day every year in honour of the twentieth-century scholar and also to acclaim the contribution of teachers and educators for their significant role in students’ lives.
