Karnataka has launched 'Guru Chetana', a support system for the professional development of teachers, on Teachers' Day as a tribute to Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan
Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born on 5 September 1888. A distinguished scholar of comparative religion and philosophy, he wrote prodigiously and taught in many institutions, including the Universities of Mysore, Calcutta and Oxford. It is only late in his career that he got involved seriously in public life beyond academia. In 1952 he became the first vice-president of India and, in 1962, the second president of India.
