“If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.”
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
As a mark of respect and to recognize teachers’ contribution towards the students and college, CPC celebrated Teachers’ Day jovially. In India, September 5 is observed as Teachers' day, in remembrance and to mark a tribute to President Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Virswami .
It is said that when Dr Radhakrishnan became President (1962-1967), his students and friends wanted to him to celebrate his birthday.
