About the Day

In India 5th September is celebrated as Teachers' day.

5th September is the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the president of India in 1962, some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate 5th September, his "birthday". In reply, Dr, Radhakrishnan said, "instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers' day". The request showed Dr.Radhakrishnan's love for the teaching profession. From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers' Day in India.

Born on September 5, 1888, at Tiruttani, 40 miles to the north-east of Madras, Radhakrishnan grew to become the most famous Indian teacher and philosopher of all times. He was also the Vice-President of India from 1952-1962.

 'If a person can double himself, (make a true friend) once in three centuries it will be more than a miracle. Those who talk of trippling themselves don't know what they are talking about.' - Michael De'Montigane (inventor of the essay)
It is indeed a great blessing to have true friends. Thinking of friendships, the legendary friendship of Krishna and Arjuna comes to mind. They were both princes from neighboring kingdoms. Arjuna was in love with Krishna's sister but Krishna's father was opposed to the marriage. Krishna advised Arjuna to kidnap his love!

Thanks a lot

I informed the boy, Aditya about your greeting.
Narayana Rao - 06 Aug 2010
Dear Moharram

Thank you for the comment.

The boy is my brother's son. I shall inform him your good wishes. Please pass on this greetings message to more authors and motivate them to greet more authors. We need to establish good friendly feelings among many knol authors.

Some or other differences of opinion do keep coming up frequently. But we need to push them aside frequently to wish good of all knol authors. We are on this platform for the good of all and not for spreading displeasure.

Big Business

Valentine’s day – Fathers day – friendship day and the list goes on & on this was really unheard of 10 years ago, celebrating such days is after all “ Western culture” & big business for retailers. Lately I have seen that we too have got up from our slumber & started celebrating Hanuman Jayanti, Gudi Padva, etc, in a bigger way then ever before, we indeed needed such a cultural jolt :)
