National Education Day is celebrated in India every year on November 11. It is the birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, eminent educationist and the first Education Minister of independent India.
As India’s first Education Minister, he was convinced that education is a tool of social transformation. He had a clear vision that all individuals should have a right to education that would develop their faculties and enable them to live an enriched life.
