Children’s Day – 14 November
Children’s Day – 14 November is here!
Happy Children’s Day to all our Curious readers!
In India, we celebrate Children’s Day (Bal Diwas) every year on 14 November, This day promotes awareness of the rights, care and education of children.
The date of 14 November was chosen as Children’s Day as a tribute to India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, whose birth anniversary is also today.
Jawaharlal Nehru was known as ‘Chacha Nehru’ among children as he was very fond of children. He saw children as the future of the nation and promoted universal primary education in India.
On this day, schools and other organisations throughout India organise speech contests, debates and other programmes to celebrate the day.
Jawaharlal Nehru (14 November 1889 – 27 May 1964)
Jawaharlal Nehru was a leader in India’s Independence movement. He is considered to be the ‘architect of modern India‘ and laid the foundations for a modern, secular, democratic Indian republic. Jawaharlal Nehru is also considered to be one of the great statesmen of the modern world.
