India commemorates the 14th of November each year with a lot of fun and festivity, as the Children’s Day which is also known as “Bal Diwas.” Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister, was born in 1889 on this very day. The Prime Minister, known among children generally as Chacha Nehru, viewed children as the true power of the nation and as the foundation of a society. His birthday was selected for Children’s Day in India following the demise of the Prime Minister.
Besides a tribute to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s, Children’s Day also talks about the rights of children, care and education. The First Prime Minister of India had a clear idea of contemporary India and started fulfilling his ideals through the creation of strong pillars supporting the newly independent nation. He believed in empowering young souls to educate themselves, stand up and know their rights independently.
There are several events including quizzes, debates, cultural activities such as dance, music, and theatre that each school organises on this day.
Many schools also hold sports events to mark the day. School teachers frequently ask kids from neighbouring orphanages or slums to join in with the school students. These gestures are quite welcome as children learn to share and welcome everyone in society. Such actions also give students a sense of equality. Several NGOs take advantage of this day to support underprivileged children. They run several programmes for children with disabilities. People often distribute youngsters with books, food, chocolates, toys and others.
Even on the television, on children’s day, a number of special shows are broadcasted. Several journals also publish special stories this day showing the immense talents of kids in different parts of the country.

“Because children grow up, we think a child’s purpose is to grow up. But a child’s purpose is to be a child.” – Tom Stoppard
As quoted by Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru, “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country.” Children’s day is a wonderful opportunity to commemorate and celebrate Chacha Nehru and his thoughts along with educating the masses about the rights concerning the youth. Children’s day celebration is a great way to make both kids and adults aware of the true future of this country. Everyone should therefore appreciate the day and fulfil their duties by giving every child a fulfilled and joyous childhood.
The love and concern that we offer our children today, not taking into account their social and economic standing, will flourish tomorrow as the fate of our country. This concept is the gist of the Children’s Day celebrations.
