September 5th marks the birthday of a former Indian President, scholar, philosopher, and Bharat Ratna awardee, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. In India, this day is celebrated as Teachers Day to commemorate the role teachers play in defining many lives.

Even during a nationwide lockdown due to the pandemic, teachers were busy creating curriculums and innovative teaching methods to keep young minds interested while learning online. To thank teachers for their effort and commitment to a brighter future, Shoppers Stop, India’s leading fashion and beauty destination shared a series of creative posts on their Instagram handle. The brand says thank you to teachers for managing a class of 150 keen and enthusiastic students at an internet speed even as slow as 50kbps. Additionally, to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Radhakrishnan, the brand set up multiple installations of a creative portrait of the visionary made entirely out of chalk sticks.
