In 1962, September 5 came to be declared as Teachers’ Day in India to mark the birthday of scholar and eminent educator from India Shri Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He also served as India’s vice president and president between 1952 and 1967.
Subhash Chandra paid tribute to Sarvepalli ji on his birth anniversary and also wished the fellow countrymen on the occasion of Teachers’ Day.
He also posted that if there is on person who is important in one’s life it is a teacher. One’s teachers play a huge role in whatever success one achieves in life in the future.
Sarvepalli ji was one of India’s most distinguished twentieth-century scholars of comparative religion and philosophy and his philosophy was grounded in Advaita Vedanta, reinterpreting this tradition for a contemporary understanding.
