A Tribute To Jawaharlal Nehru And Embracing Child’s Rights

Children's Day in India is celebrated annually on 14 November in honour of Jawaharlal Nehru, fondly known as “Chacha Nehru”, as he was born on 14 November 1889. Nehru was a prominent political figure who played a vital role in India's struggle for independence.

At the same time, his warm affection and love towards children endeared him to them; thus, his birthday is celebrated to honour children. Meanwhile, Children's Day is celebrated on varying dates in other countries. 

Why Children’s Day is celebrated?

14 November marks the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Indian independence activist and first Prime Minister of independent India.

He has been instrumental in encouraging children's education as he believed that children are the real strength of the country and the bedrock of society.

This is why November 14 is celebrated as Bal Diwas or Children's Day in India. Nehru always showed affection and love towards all children; hence, the children also cherished him very much.

That's why he was known as "Chacha Nehru" among the children, “Chacha” refers to uncle, younger brother of father.
