Children’s Day or Bal Diwas, in Hindi, is a day when students across schools in India enjoy various recreational activities and fun. While some children and grownups don’t know about the history of Children’s day, many know it as the birthday of India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
Children’s Day is commended in India as a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru who was conceived on November 14, 1889.
Affectionately called ‘Chacha Nehru’ and ‘Chacha Ji’, Nehru’s adoration for children is all around perceived and acknowledged in each edge of the nation, even years after his passing.
The day continues to be a special for children as they are showered with gifts, and all the more significant, a considerable measure of consideration.
Schools sort out events like debates, test competitions, and music performances to engage the students and furthermore distribute clothes, chocolates, and books to orphans and underprivileged children.
Be that as it may, before India’s autonomy in 1947, Children’s Day was commended on November 20, the day observed by the United Nations as Universal Children’s Day. Be that as it may, after Nehru’s demise in 1964, it was unanimously chosen to observe Children’s Day on the birthday of the first Prime Minister as a tribute to his adoration for children
Nehru was attached to children and would meet youthful kids with fondness. It was for his special love towards children that he came to be known as Chacha or the most loved uncle for the children of the nation.
This is the reason why India celebrates Children’s Day on November 14 – To recognize the tyke cherishing man, the opportunity warrior and the first Prime Minister of autonomous India.
