Teacher’s Day 2017: Google Doodle turns the logo into a virtual classroom
Google Doodle has turned its logo into a virtual classroom to mark Teacher's Day on Tuesday. In the doodle, the alphabets of the Google logo transform into students and teachers, with a virtual blackboard behind them highlighting different subjects.
Teacher's Day is celebrated in India on 5 September. It is a day to thank your teachers, not just from school or college, but anyone in general who has taught you important lessons in life.
The Teachers' Day was first celebrated in India in 1962, when Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan began serving as the second president of India.
To celebrate his esteemed position, his students suggested that his birthday be celebrated as 'Radhakrishnan Day'.
Radhakrishnan was born in 1882 in a town called Tirutin Andhra Pradesh. He became the first Vice President of India in 1952 and took on the role as the nation's second President in 1962 until 1967. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 1984 and the British Order of Merit in 1963.
