On this Children’s Day 2016, I convey my
heartfelt wishes to all the children’s around the globe. They may not
always smell pure and sweet, A dirty diaper or a dampened sheet But with
a loving cuddle and a beautiful smile, The joys of parenthood are all
worthwhile.
In India, Children’s Day is celebrated on 14 November, the birthday of
the country’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Jawaharlal Nehru,
who was fondly called Chacha Nehru (Uncle Nehru) or Chaffinch (Uncle) by
the kids, emphasized the importance of giving love and affection to
children, whom he saw as the bright future of India. He wanted to
enhance the progress of Indian youth for which he established education
institutes like AIIMS, Indian Institute of Technology. It is well known
that Jawaharlal Nehru admired 2 things, one of which is rose and the
other was children. To give him tribute, India celebrates this festival
14 November, the day of his birthday.
Many functions are organized in schools, offices and other
organizations. Most schools hold 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 seen as a day for the kids
to engage in fun. Children take part in many sports organized for them.
