Teachers' Day celebrated in Kolkata

Kolkata, Sep 5 : Special feasts for teachers and honours for principals of various schools here marked celebrations of Teachers' Day in the West Bengal capital Thursday.

Heads of several schools and colleges in the city were felicitated as a recognition of their contribution to the city's educational sector.

Principals of eleven reputed institutes were honoured by the Institute of Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Development (iLEAD) here on Teachers' Day, which celebrates the birth anniversary of India's second president and teacher-philosopher S. Radhakrishnan.

Students of schools across the eastern metropolis organised cultural programmes for their teachers.

Protests and demonstrations against the recent spate of assaults on teachers in West Bengal cast a shadow over the celebrations.
