New Delhi: It's the day to express gratitude to the most inspirational person in your life. If you are proud of what you are today, you ought to thank your teacher. Yes it's Teachers' day and Google has honoured them in style with a delightful and colourful doodle.

When you visit the homepage of Google, you will be welcomed with a sweet doodle which will remind you of your childhood days and your wonderful teachers. The doodle features every alphabet in the Google logo as a teacher in the various roles. The letter ‘G’ features a female teacher wearing spectacles sitting behind her desk; correcting papers and keeping an eye on students.

The first letter ‘O’ has a teacher teaching mathematics in the classroom. The second letter 'O' shows a teacher possibly reciting a poem or story to the children. The fourth letter 'G' will remind you of your sports teacher who always inspired you to play sports and stay fit. The fifth letter 'L' shows a teacher of Chemistry in action, demonstrating complex chemical reactions. And the last letter 'E' depicts a music teacher teaching kids how to play music.

Teacher's Day is celebrated as Guru Divas in India on September 5 every year since 1962 to commemorate Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday. He was the first Vice President of independent India and the second President of India, but above all the most revered and loved teacher of religious and philosophical studies.  

So, a very Happy Teachers' Day to all the teachers out there who have made a difference in many people's lives and continue to inspire us everyday.
