Brighten up your child’s future this Children’s Day!
Did you know that Children’s Day wasn’t always celebrated on 14th November? Earlier, it was celebrated on 20th November - a day which the UN observed as Universal Children’s Day. But it was after the death of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru in 1964 - who was born on November 14, 1889 - that India started celebrating Children’s Day on his birthday to commemorate him.
The reasons for this are well known among everybody today - Jawaharlal Nehru was popularly referred to as Chahaji or Chaha Nehru due to his immense love for children, and his unending adulation for them. He believed that children were an essential part of the future of the country, and regarding this, he said: “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country.”
Is it not apt that on Children’s Day, we also remember one of the forces who stood up most saliently for children?
Also known as Bal Diwas in India, Children’s Day is an auspicious occasion which not only celebrates the future prospects which children hold inherent within them, but also the radical possibilities which can come about by educating them. Jawaharlal Nehru was also a key proponent of this: he ensured the establishment of some of the leading universities in India, including All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). He also went so far as to initiate the establishment of Indian Institutes of Management (IIM).
