Why we celebrate Teacher’s Day on 5th September.

Regardless of the color, country or caste, teachers bestow equal knowledge to their students. They play a special role in everyone’s life. Hence, to show our gratitude towards them, we celebrate Teacher’s day, every year.

Now, you must be curious to know, why 5th September?
