Actor Sonu Sood, on the other hand, dedicated the day to his first teacher in life – his mother and posted her picture on Twitter writing an emotional post in Hindi that translates that he is walking on the path that his mother had shown him, the destination is far but he’ll surely get there.

3 Idiots actor R Madhavan also remembered the “extraordinary and selfless” contributions of teachers in his life. He wrote ‘Wish you all a very HAPPY TEACHERS DAY. I am what I am today, only because of the extraordinary and selfless teachers I’ve had the privilege of being blessed with. I am ever grateful for their presence in my life’.

Actor Siddharth Malhotra tweeted ‘To all who’ve helped me understand life and make the best out of it, who’ve taught me lessons so I could ace better at the things I do. Here’s wishing them a Happy Teachers Day.

Teachers’ Day is celebrated across the country in the memory of former President Dr S Radhakrishnan, a philosopher-author and India’s second President who was born on September 5, 1888. His contributions to the field of education are exemplary. In 1962, the tradition to celebrate Teachers’ Day began to honour Radhakrishnan and all teachers.
