Happy Children's Day 2022

Children's Day is celebrated across India to raise awareness about the rights, education, and welfare of children. It is celebrated on 14 November every year on the birthday of the First Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was known to have been fond of children. On this day, many educational and motivational programs for children are held all over India.


Every year on November 14, people honor Jawaharlal Nehru, also known as "Chacha Nehru," by celebrating the day. He was famous for his love of kids and was born on November 14, 1889. He also founded the Children's Film Society in 1955 to produce children's films in their own cultures.

When Chacha Nehru passed away in 1964, the nation started observing his birthday as Children's Day. A resolution to observe National Children's Day on November 14 in his honor was approved by parliament after consideration of his appeal to kids.

But why Children's Day is celebrated on 14th November?


In the words of the Late Pt. Nehru, "The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country."

Former Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had a distinct vision for what Modern India should resemble and realized that the best way to understand his goals was to build solid foundations that would support the recently independent country in the future.

Chacha Nehru was a fervent supporter of children's education and consistently held that the advancement of a newly independent nation depended on the well-being of its youth. He held that young people were a country's true strength and the cornerstone of society.
