Introduction: Purpose of Children’s day
In honour of Jawaharlal Nehru, who was born on this day in 1889, the 14th of November is observed as Children’s Day in India. This holiday is a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru. Chacha Nehru, or simply Chachaji, was the affectionate name given to Nehru because of his well-known fondness for children.
Before 1964, India celebrated Children’s Day on November 20th, which was also the day that the United Nations designated as the international celebration of children. However, after he passed away in 1964, it was unanimously decided that his birthday would be celebrated as Bal Diwas throughout the country due to the fact that he had a deep love and affection for children.
Nehru was quoted as saying at one time, “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow.” How we raise our children will have a significant impact on the future of our nation.
Nehru, who was concerned about the growth and education of children in the nation, was responsible for establishing many of the most prestigious educational institutions in India during his time as prime minister. His commitment to the growth of young people was a driving force behind the establishment of both the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (also known as AIIMS) and the Indian Institutes of Technology (also known as IITs). Even more impressively, he was the driving force behind the founding of the Indian Institutes of Management.
Significance of Children’s Day
A famous social reformer, author, and statesman from the United States named Fredrick Douglass once said, “It is easier to build strong children than it is to repair broken men.” A sage quote that makes reference to the part that children can play in laying the foundation for a strong nation. This is a thought that was also shared by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India and a highly respected Indian freedom fighter and leader.
Nehru held the firm conviction that the way in which a nation’s children are cared for and raised lays the groundwork for the nation’s future success. It is imperative that, in order to construct a powerful nation, we instill good values in our children by showering them with love and care and guiding them through the ups and downs of life until they are self-assured and strong enough to contribute to the construction of the nation.
This equation was very well understood and believed by Nehru, which was displayed in his affection towards children despite cultural and linguistic barriers. Nehru believed that children should be treated with love and respect regardless of their background.
Children’s Day at Akshara International School
Aksharites celebrated this great pomp involving a number of activities by the teachers to honor the children at Akshara International and also the child in them. Children treasure the little joys and we treasure their every Aksharite’s little success. Whether it’s trying harder, practicing more, learning well, scoring better marks than the last time, we celebrate every one of their joys.
As a result, this event honoring children serves as a tribute to him and his conviction that “the foundation of a strong nation depends on the happy state of its children.” Even though the virtuous man has been gone for a very long time, his ideas continue to live on until this day, and we are reminded of them annually on Children’s Day.
It also serves to bring to our attention the significance, not only for the nation but also for society, of the health and happiness of our children. It also serves as a reminder to us as responsible citizens of India to avoid making distinctions between children on the basis of their caste, religion, ethnicity, or financial and social status. It serves as a gentle reminder to watch over them, make sure they are fed and healthy, and ensure that they have access to educational opportunities.
