Short Essay on Teachers' Day in 100 Words

Teachers' day is celebrated in India on 5th September every year. It is celebrated on the auspicious occasion of the birthday of India's first vice-president and second president, Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. Dr S. Radhakrishnan loved teaching and was a great teacher. During his tenure as the president, one of his students asked for his permission to celebrate his birthday on a national level.

Dr Radhakrishnan suggested that instead of his birthday, he would be happier if 5th September could be celebrated as Teachers' day to pay respect to teachers all over the country. Since then, Teachers' day has been celebrated every year by students to express their love and gratitude for their teachers. On this day, students decorate their classrooms, organise games and performances for their teachers and give them gifts and tokens of gratitude.

Our parents who taught us how to eat, talk, walk and run, our kindergarten teachers who helped us grasp the first alphabets of our life, our school teachers and college professors as well as our dance, drawing, singing mentors - every single one of them have played a role in shaping our lives and making us better and stronger human beings. All our teachers deserve to be shown respect, love and gratitude. Teachers' day gives us the opportunity to do the same. 

On teachers' day, students decorate their classrooms, organise games, singing and dance performances for their teachers and give them gifts as tokens of gratitude. They also visit their tuition and coaching centres to celebrate the day with their tutors and mentors.

The students who have already passed out from schools and colleges, make it a point to visit their old teachers and bring them sweets and gifts. In many schools and colleges, senior students dress up as their teachers, take classes for junior students and let the teachers rest and enjoy the day. They also arrange delicious food and treats for the teachers. It is a fun-filled day for all teachers and students.
