Every individual is an enlarged replica of their teachers

Bhopal (Mahamedia) Teacher’s Day is celebrated to mark respect and gratitude towards all the teachers, gurus & mentors. Teachers are no less than engineers or architects of our society that shape the young minds. In India, Teacher's Day is celebrated on 5th September- to mark the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Globally, Teachers Day is celebrated on 5th October; in India, we celebrate it on 5th September from 1962 onwards. 
Dr S. Radhakrishnan is one of the most renowned writers in contemporary India. He has made significant contributions to a variety of subjects starting from theoretical, theological, moral, instructive, communal, and enlightening subjects. He wrote several articles to many recognised journals which are of great importance. Teachers Day is a great occasion for celebrating and enjoying the relationship between teachers and students.
Teachers nourish and prepare students for their future as they are the real icon of knowledge and wisdom. They create awareness among the students and common people. They are the source of light in the world that has been darkened due to ignorance. Our teachers are the true pillars of our success. They help us garner knowledge, improve our skills, grow confidence as well as they help us to choose the right path to success. But, despite playing such a crucial role in the lives of students and in nation-building, they rarely are shown the gratitude that they deserve.
A teacher is a friend. Philosopher, and guide who holds our hands, open our mind, and touches our hearts.
The contribution of a teacher cannot be ignored at all. In many countries across the world, teacher’s day is a special day where teachers of the schools, colleges and universities are honoured specially. Teaching is the most influential job in the world. Teachers are known to shape the mind of youth and without knowledge no one can exist in this world. Teachers impart good value in children and turn them into responsible citizens. A teacher is the one who knows the way shows the way, goes the way, and leads others through the way.
Sir Isaac Newton once said-“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” So, try to meet your teachers on the day and convey your wishes. If they are far then send them a message and make his/her day memorable.
