The Contribution Of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan


Teaching is the most needed thing for every person as it shapes young minds and infuses them with knowledge. Without our teachers, we are nothing. The world would not be a better place if there were no teachers. It is they who take an interest in conveying their knowledge to their students so these students can become responsible adults.


Our education system is there because there are teachers. These individuals have expertise in specific subjects and pass it on to the next generation. In India, the celebration of Teacher's day is dedicated to Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan as he initiated it while taking the oath as the president of India.


Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a man of many talents, and he had amazing qualities. He was a great philosopher and teacher who established big things at a young age. He was selected by many big Universities and then chosen as the president. His students liked him very much, and he was a true inspiration for everyone. He requested that on his birthday, all the teachers should be given respect. Since then, teacher's day has been celebrated by all the teachers.


Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan also wrote a book titled "Political Thinkers of Modern India." His book describes the importance of teachers and education in a country. He wrote the book by taking Democratic India as an example which was still in development. He mentioned that teachers are important pillars of building a country and people should respect them more. His philosophical thinking and understanding of the teaching profession allowed him to write many great pieces.


He also inspired many great leaders with his thinking, such as Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, and Dr. Rajendra Prasad. He also developed his understanding of politics and comprehended how the country was lacking due to some party leaders. He also scolded them for procrastination and delinquency; he also became against the Congress people for doing favoritism and corruption.


He was a fearless and knowledgeable man who understood the value of a teacher and teachings. Thus he deserves to be celebrated in the way he wanted. We can do it by celebrating all the teachers and mentors of our life.
