Happy Children’s Day

Children’s Day is celebrated across India to increase awareness of the rights, care and education of children. It is held on 14 November every year as a tribute to India’s First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, fondly known as Chacha Nehru among children, he advocated for children to have fulfilled education.

Children’s Day is celebrated across India on November 14, on the birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru. The celebration of Children’s Day or Bal Diwas in India dates back to 1956 and is a day to increase awareness about the rights and education of the children. Jawahar Lal Nehru, popular among children, was fondly called Chacha Nehru and is often cited as saying that children should always be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow. Before his death, Bal Diwas was celebrated on November 20, coinciding with Universal Children’s Day by the United Nations. After his death in 1964, a resolution was passed in the parliament to give him a befitting farewell and it was unanimously decided to celebrate his birthday as Bal Diwas or Children’s Day in India.

Jawahar Lal Nehru, under the guidance of Mahatma Gandhi, turned out to be a leader of India’s struggle for independence. He laid the foundation of independent India as sovereign, socialist, secular and a democratic republic. For this, he is credited as the architect of modern India. He loved children and was often photographed with them.

To mark Children’s Day, schools organise fun and motivational functions. Many prepare Children’s Day speech. In many schools, children are asked to ditch school uniform and wear party clothes to celebrate Bal Diwas. It’s a joyous occasion for all children, parents and teachers.

Childhood Memories :

When I was a Child… My parents didn’t call my cell, they yelled my name; I played outside not online !!

If I didn’t eat what my mother cooked then I didn’t eat anything., unlike today children create tantrums and eat stuff like pizza, burger or other fast food, parents also give in and try to satisfy children’s whims and fancies !

Remembering those awesome carefree childhood days !

Childhood is like being drunk. Everyone remembers what you did EXCEPT YOU!

If You Carry Your Childhood With You, You Never Become Older, Childhood is all about being wild, having fun and enjoying a carefree life – So, Enjoy your childhood till it lasts… Keep the child inside you always alive then you will never feel Old..

Every child is a different kind of flower and all together, make this world a beautiful garden.

Life never seems to be the way we want it, but we live it in the best way we can…There is no perfect life, but we can always fill it with perfect Moments……
