NEW DELHI: Google’s doodle marking Teachers’ Day in India shows a red, animated octopus standing against a blackboard, using its tentacles to solve math equations, read, conduct experiments and, make notes.

To mark the occasion, President Ramnath Kovind will felicitate the winners of National Teachers’ Awards 2018 at an event in New Delhi. A total of 46 teachers have been selected from across the country to be honoured for their contribution to the education sector.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) had received nominations for the honour from 6 May to 25 June, after which the teachers were selected at three different stages. This year will mark the 61st year of the National Teacher’s Award.

Designated by UNESCO, World Teachers’ Day is celebrated on 5 October internationally as a tribute to teachers and educators around the world. In India, the tradition of celebrating the day started in 1962 when Dr Radhakrishnan began his presidential term. The day is not to be confused with Guru Purnima, a more Hindu-Buddhist festival which also celebrates the student-teacher relationship.

Dr Radhakrishnan was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour, in 1954. He was nominated 27 times for the Nobel Prize; 16 times for the Nobel Prize in literature, and 11 times for the Nobel Peace prize.

Unnatural diet, lack of exercise and a poor lifestyle can affect the human’s aging process.

US researchers have warned this. The ‘senescent’, one of the cells that increase the lifespan of humans, plays an important role in age-related diseases and conditions.

Researchers have found that it prevents the accumulation of premature aging and also protects against harmful effects caused by unnatural diet.

Senior author Nathan LeBraser from ‘Mayo Clinic’ in the US said, “We believe that unnatural diets and poor lifestyles accelerate the aging process of humans at both biological and clinical levels.”

In their research, researchers did training on mice. In which one group of these mice were provided with a healthy diet and the other group was given food like ‘fast food’.

This test resulted in fatal changes in health parameters in mice eating things like ‘fast food’. In which several symptoms were seen such as increasing their body weight, increasing their flesh to 300 meters.

After this, half of the mice in both groups of both types of diet were exercised daily, which showed a change in their body.

Nathan said, “It doesn’t mean that you need to run in a marathon, but we need to find new ways to increase our activities to stay healthy.”
