Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of independent India, was born on November 14, 1889. November 14 is celebrated as Children’s Day or Bal Diwas across the country to commemorate the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was affectionately addressed as Chacha Nehru by kids. Nehru, a central figure in Indian politics before and after the independence, had deepest desire to work for the welfare of children and the youth in the country.
To nurture the future generation of India, Nehru took a special interest in the education system of the country. He not only ensured that every child in the country gets free primary education, but also established several higher educational institutions including All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), and Indian Institutes of Management (IIM).
Children’s Day is to celebrate the kid that we all are inside and forgotten to sincerely accept ourselves. We have end up too mechanical in approach and were adulting so fast, it's far difficult to just accept the kid-like aspect of us. It is also the proper time to impeach what's it this is preventing you to simply emerge as the kid which you are meant to be?
Prior to Nehru’s death, India used to celebrate Children’s Day on November 20, the date observed as Universal Children’s Day by The United Nations.
