When does rest of the world celebrate Teacher's Day?
Do they celebrate it at all.

Yes, we do celebrate it. In Nepal we celebrate it on Guru Purnima.

I made a post on that day. If you have not read it then you may read it here:

All the days - mother's day, father's day, Dasehara, Deewali, bhai dhooj, and so many other festivals - we celebrate according to the Hindu calender (panchang)

Happy Teacher's day.

'They' don't really 'celebrate' it in the spirit of a celebration.

Sporadically a few good people who get a few good teachers do 'celebrate'. Its a joyful thing for them. Otherwise I'm skeptical.


School--yes we did celebrate it for 2-3 teachers (celebrate = wished them from our heart).

College--I have known a few cases of a few good men.

The world's getting cold didi! Hope you had a better experience at school. Cheers to all you teachers :)
