India celebrates Children’s Day on November 14 as a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru who was born on November 14, 1989. Earlier, it was celebrated on 20th November but after Jawaharlal Nehru’s death, it was decided that his birthday would be celebrated as Children’s Day. That is because Pandit Nehru was very fond of kids, and the affection was mutual as they called him ‘Chacha Nehru’.
Children’s Day, which is popularly known as ‘Baal Diwas’ is celebrated to increase awareness of the rights, care, and education of children. Nehru was called ‘Chacha’ because of his friendly attitude towards kids.
Here are some quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru on Children’s Day:
“I may not have time for adults, but I have enough time for children”
“The only way to reform them (children) is to win them over with love. So long as a child is unfriendly, you can’t mend his ways”
“Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow”
“At school, they learn many things, which are no doubt useful, but they gradually forget that essential thing to be human and kind, playful and make life richer for ourselves and others”
“The vast army of children across the world, outwardly different kinds of clothes, and yet so very like another. If you bring them together, they play or quarrel, but even their quarrel is some kind of play”
