Children’s Day is celebrated on the 14th of November in India. It’s an occasion where people give a gift to their child or children and wish them good health and happiness. The first prime minister of India was Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was born on the 14th of November.

He loved children, and he believed in their educational opportunities. He was an advocate for children and for their future leadership in the country. There is no doubt about it, whether the parents are educated or not, kids can be taught to be responsible, productive, and ethical members of society. This is why, after his death in 1964, his birthday was declared Children’s Day, nationwide.

Children are the future of India. They are the new generation of Indians. And as a nation, we must invest in them. We must invest in their future so that they can lead us into a better India. 

On this day, schools organise events like dancing, singing, and plays. They also organise fancy dress parties. There are a number of residential societies, governmental and non-governmental organisations which organise such activities in their respective capacities. 

The main aim of these events is to promote positive values among children. They try to encourage children to be responsible, helpful, respectful, caring and polite. They teach children to be the best that they can be. They try to teach them to be compassionate, to love their country, to respect elders, and to be happy.

These are the values that we should inculcate in our children.  We should teach them to be self-confident, to have faith in themselves, and to believe in their abilities. We should teach them to be courageous, to be honest, and to be open-minded. We should teach them to be tolerant and to understand other people’s points of view. We should teach them to respect their elders and to follow the rules.

We should teach them to be disciplined and to be punctual. We should teach them to be grateful for all the opportunities they have been given. We should teach them to be creative, to be independent, and to be brave. We should teach them to be compassionate and to be helpful. We should teach them to be responsible, to be truthful, and to be respectful. We should teach them to be grateful, to be respectful, and to be honest. We should teach them to be polite, to be patient, and to be honest.

We should always remember the real reason for celebrating Children’s Day – to take forward the dreams of Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, to educate all children so that they will be valuable citizens of their nation.
