Hello Readers,

Wish you all a very Happy Children’s Day.

Children's Day is celebrated on 14 November, to mark the birthday of our first Prime Minister of independent India, who was fondly called Chacha Nehru (Uncle Nehru) or Chachaji (Uncle), and who emphasized the importance of giving love and affection to children, whom he saw as the bright future of India.

  • Nehru was very much fond of children, it was his love for children that made Indians celebrate Children's Day.
  • He wanted to enhance the progress of Indian youth for which he established education institutes like AIIMS, Indian Institute of Technology. To pay him tribute, India celebrates this occasion on 14 November, the day of his birthday.
  • Many functions are organized in schools, offices and other organizations. Most schools conduct cultural performances on this day, run by the children themselves. Teachers also get involved and may perform songs and dances for their students.
  • On this day, the State and the Central Government also make it a point to showcase children's films as part of Film festivals organized in many parts of the country. All over the country, various cultural and social institutions conduct competitions for children.


Children's Day is recognized on various days in many places around the world to honour children globally. Children's Day began to celebrate on the second Sunday of June in 1856 by the Reverend Dr. Charles Leonard, pastor of the Universalist Church of the Redeemer in Chelsea, Mass. That Sunday of June Dr. Leonard held a special service dedicated just for children. Dr. Leonard christened the day, Rose Day. Later it was named Flower Sunday. Still, later the second Sunday of the month of July was named Children's Day.

The International Day for Protection of Children is observed in many countries as Children's Day on 1 June since 1950. It was established by the Women's International Democratic Federation on its congress in Moscow (4 November 1949). Major global variants include a Universal Children's Day on 20 November, by United Nations recommendation.

"The law of love could be best understood and learned through little Children."
