Important Days of September

The most auspicious event that strikes one’s mind when she or he thinks of September is “Teacher’s Day”, which is celebrated on the 5th of this month every year. “A teacher is a person who dedicates her or his life in laying the foundation of the future of the children of a nation and empowering them to become the builders of the nation.”

It is also the seventh month of the ancient Roman calendar and it is associated with ‘Vulcan’, the Roman God of Fire. Interestingly, in Latin ‘Septem’ means Seven. We observe important events like Literacy Day, Teachers’ Day, Hindi Diwas and many more in September.
