India, Sep 05: Search giant Google on Wednesday dedicated an animated doodle to Teachers’ Day.
In the doodle, a spinning globe, wearing spectacles is shown as a teacher. The globe is surrounded by icons representing various subjects including physics, chemistry, music, maths, astronomy, among others.
In India, September 5 is celebrated as the Teacher’s day since 1962 in honour of India’s second President and revered teacher Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on the same day in 1888.
He was a teacher at Chennai’s Presidency College and Calcutta University.
While India celebrates Teachers’ Day on September 5, World Teacher’s day, designated by UNESCO is celebrated on October 5 every year.
