September 5 is celebrated as Teachers’ Day in India. It marks the birth anniversary of the second President of India, Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was a popular figure among the students. On the occasion, several Indian sportspeople took to social media to post messages for their mentors and teachers. The legendary Sachin Tendulkar also had a brilliant message for his fans recognising the importance of a teacher in an individual’s life.
