Children’s Day is celebrated all over the world on 20th
November. In India, the basis of Children’s Day is Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru’s Birthday, which is celebrated on 14th
November. Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru was always very concerned for children, loved them a lot and contributed immensely towards their development.
The occasion of children’s Day is not only an opportunity to celebrate and enjoy, but it reminds us of the mission and message of Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru. He always wanted children all over the world to grow, prosper, get education and prosper in life.
Children’s Day is celebrated with great pomp and show across India. Different schools and organizations are seen initiating various competitions and awarding outstanding students. There are special offers for kids in Shopping malls, theaters and amusement parks. Parents are seen pampering their kids by fulfilling their wishes for the Day.
Jawaharlal Nehru popularly and fondly remembered as Chacha Nehru, always believed that children decide the future of any country or civilization. If the children of the country are provided with proper foundation and development opportunities, they can uplift the nation towards greater prosperity. On the other hand, failure to feed and educate the children prepares to ruin all the expectations of any nation.
Therefore, amidst all this pomp and glory, we should not lose sight of Chacha Nehru s real message. That is providing our children with a safe and loving environment to grow as well as giving them ample and equal opportunities through which they can take great strides and contribute to the progress of the nation. This Day serves as a reminder to each and every one of us, to renew our commitment to the welfare of children and teach them to live by their Chacha Nehru s standards and example.
