To mark the glorious occasion of Teachers’ Day, Google India has featured a colourful doodle on its home page on Saturday.
The doodle features a number of objects which is widely used as a part of academics like books, painting kits, laptops, mathematical symbols and instruments etc.
The two ‘O’s in Google have been creatively portrayed as the planet Saturn and an atom and the letter ‘L’ has been depicted as a ruler.
Sharing the poster of the doodle on its Twitter handle, Google India tweeted,” Raising our hands to say Happy Teacher’s Day with today’s Google Doodle. Thank you for making sure that learning continues, even as classes changed from seats to screens.”
Every year since 1962, schools, colleges and universities across India has been celebrating September 5 as the Teachers’ Day. It’s the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
He was a philosopher, academic, and statesman, and served as the first Vice President of India (1952–1962) and the second President of India (1962–1967).
Caught amidst the pandemic, students across India have planned to express their gratitude and thanks towards their teachers by posting photographs and videos of speeches, songs and dances on social media pages of their respective educational institutions.
Most parents, along with the students, confined in homes, are also getting busy to prepare the videos and designing e-greetings for the teachers.
This is for the first time in the last 59 years that the celebration of Teachers’ Day is going to be a low-key because of COVID-19 pandemic.
