November 14 is celebrated as Children’s Day in India whereas the United Nations declared Universal Children’s day on 20 November, on which it is celebrated throughout the world. Following suit with the rest of the world, India used to celebrate Children’s Day on 20 November itself earlier, until the demise of an eminent freedom fighter and the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. An anti-colonial nationalist, social democrat, politician and author, Pandit ji was an integral part of the Indian independence movement who advocated parliamentary democracy, secularism, and science and technology during the 1950s when he served as independent India’s first Prime Minister. He served a tenure of 17 years and shaped India’s arc as a nation. Under his tenure, the country was saved from two blocks of cold war and progressed in most arenas, specifically in education. Jawaharlal Nehru is credited with the establishment of educational institutions of great repute, including Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

The leader was also involved actively in the freedom struggle and had to go to prison for the same. An author, he wrote during the time he was in prison. His books include 'Letters From a Father to his Daughter' (1929), 'An Autobiography' (1936), and 'The Discovery of India' (1964) have gained global acclaim and readership. He was extremely fond of children and invested a lot of faith in them. He believed that children were priceless gems who are the future of the nation and could turn around the national scenario. He therefore emphasized on their education, upbringing and development, for they depended on the development and growth of the nation. He was dearly called ‘Chachaji’ by children and is still known as Chacha Nehru among children and adults.

Schools, polytechnics and other educational institutions celebrate his birth anniversary by organizing cultural events, plays, fancy dress competitions, debates, speeches and other quiz competitions in order to spread awareness among children. Instead of declaring this day as a holiday, the day is marked by celebrations and a commemoration of the historical aspect of the nation. In addition to that, the life and times of Nehru are discussed and displayed in the form of plays, skits or quizzes. The day is also a reminder about how every child in the country, whether rich or poor, deserves a good present so that the future can be as bright as they wish it to be. Basic facilities and human rights including healthcare, education and sanitation are must haves for children of all age groups and protection from corrupt activities like child labour, human trafficking and sexual abuse is equally important to be ensured for them.

On the occasion of Children’s Day, here are some quotes, wishes and messages for you that can be used to convey your heart’s desires to your near and dear ones.
