Happy Teacher's Day 2017: Here's a list of 20 wishes and quotes to send your favourite teachers and gurus

New Delhi:  They say teachers change the world - one child at a time. There's no better day than Teacher's Day, marked on September 5 in India, to reach out to the teachers who have inspired you and taught you valuable lessons. Teacher's Day is celebrated in India in honour of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on September 5, 1888. Dr Radhakrishnan was India's second president and a great scholar, philosopher and Bharat Ratna recipient. Since 1962, India has commemorated his birth anniversary by paying tribute to its hardworking - and admittedly under-appreciated - teachers and gurus. 

Here are 20 wishes and quotes you can send your teachers on Teacher's Day this year:
