Parents and teachers should carefully and tenderly cultivate children like fresh flowers in a garden since they represent the nation's future and tomorrow's people. Only through proper education can better social society and order be established.
While we strive to teach children all there is to know about life; children teach us how to live. Unfortunately, the pressures of parenthood can mask the small lessons we acquire along the road. Yes, learn from the very people we are continually assisting with their everyday needs! They're small, yet they have a new perspective on life, priorities, and the things that impact them. I have been repeatedly amused at what worries them and laughed at how insignificant their concerns are compared to mine. However, I learnt that their mental attitude and perceptions could teach us, adults, many things.
Children's Day is observed across India to raise awareness about children's rights, care, and education. Every year on November 14th, it commemorates the birth of India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Among children, Nehru was known as Chacha Nehru, and he campaigned for youngsters to have a well-rounded education to help construct a better society in the future. Children, according to Nehru, are the true power of a nation and the cornerstone of the community. Hence, many educational and motivating events for children are organized across India on this day, especially in schools.
In India, Children's Day has been observed since 1956. Before Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru's death, India honoured Children's Day on November 20 (the day designated by the United Nations as Universal Children's Day). After Jawaharlal Nehru's demise, his birthday was honoured as Children's Day in India.
Jawaharlal Nehru had great faith in India's children because they "can play with each other without thinking about differences." As a result, Nehruji was instrumental in developing some of India's most prestigious academic institutions. His perspective was influential in founding AIIMS for medical, IITs for engineering, and IIMs for management studies.
As told by Nehruji, "Today's children will make the India of tomorrow. The way we as a society bring them up will determine the future of our country". This philosophy is even conveyed in his letters to Indira Gandhi, his daughter when she was a young child. At present, children have a lot of fun activities on this day, ranging from excellent morning assemblies to dance parties while maintaining social distance or via online platforms due to the pandemic. During this day, the children are the center of focus, and many schools throw a party to make children feel special. I particularly remember when the management would allow us to wear any casual color dress other than our uniforms during my school days! Some memories are worth smiling, along with the playful shenanigans that took place. Happy Children’s Day and keep the child within you alive!
