Activities Conducted


1. Teacher's Day Celebration

The teacher’s day celebration was held on 5th September in Sinhgad Institute of Technology Mechanical Department. It was organized by MESA Committee to show their gratitude toward teachers. Teachers day is celebrated in India in order to mark the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan who was a staunch believer of education and was a well-known diplomat, scholar, President of India and above all a Teacher. When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the president of India in 1962, he was approached by some of his students and friends and requested him to celebrate his birthday as Teachers day. In reply, Dr. Radhakrishnan said, “Instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teacher’s Day”. The request showed his love for teaching profession. From then onwards the day is celebrated as Teacher’s Day in India.
