Fourteenth November is celebrated as Children’s Day in India on the occasion of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday. He was the first Prime Minister of India, who was very fond of children. After his death in 1964,every year his birthday (14th Nov.) is celebrated as children’s day in India.
The world may remember him as the first Indian Prime Minister and a skilled politician, but for children he was Chacha Nehru. Children always affectionately called him as Chacha. Chacha in Hindi means ‘Uncle’. He believed that children must be provided with love and care as the future of a nation lies in their hands. This day is dedicated to children and every body tries their best to make the children happy on this day.
