Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru once said “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country“.
Nehru was a very strong advocate of the importance of education when it came to children. Involved in establishing the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, the Indian Institutes of Technology, the Indian Institutes of Management and the National Institutes of Technology.
On this day, schools and colleges host cultural programs, functions, and events. Many times, teachers also participate in these functions in order to show their love and affection for children.
In India, November 14 started being celebrated as Children’s Day only after Nehru’s demise in 1964. Apart from his role as a freedom fighter and politician, Pandit Nehru has left behind a legacy of education and development of children in the country, and November 14 is celebrated as a tribute to him.
