A day to remember child rights


Indian today paid homage to the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on his 128th birth anniversary. The day is dedicated to the children of the nation as Chacha Nehru's Love for them is known to all. There may be many underprivileged children who need such recreation in a country like ours but they can't afford to spend their time and money.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday led the nation in paying tributes to independent India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on his 128th birth anniversary.

There is a cheer in the air on November 14 when schools across the country put aside textbooks for a while in order to celebrate the importance of children. To commemorate his birthday, various cultural programmes are held across the schools.

Nehru was very fond of children. For better and bright future each and every child has to do hard work that's what Chacha Nehru teaches and believed in children.

Children, students are treated specially on this Children's Day across the world as people around them try to build a more protective and positive environment around them. However, after Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru's death in 1964, it was decided unanimously to commemorate his birthday - November 14 as Children's Day or Bal Divas in the country. "So give them something great to imitate". Schools and other educational institutions arrange exciting games, competitions and surprise gifts for students on Children's Day.
