Happy Teacher's Day! It is a special day to honour teachers. In India, Teachers' Day is celebrated on 5 September on the birthday of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the second president of India.

Dr Radhakrishnan was a philosopher and a teacher par excellence and when some of his students and friends approached him to seek his permission to celebrate his birthday, he requested that they should use the day to show their appreciation to their teachers. Since then 5 September is celebrated as Teachers' Day in India.

On Teacher's Day students dress up as teachers and teach junior class students. The day is marked by celebrations that include cultural programme, debate competitions, song and dance. 

To add more fun to this day, we have compiled some funny quotes and jokes that you can share with your teachers and friends through SMS, WhatsApp or Facebook while wishing them a Happy Teacher's Day:
