The international children’s day is celebrated all over the world by the UN ans UNESCO on November 20th every year. It is celebrated as the Universal Children’s day and is aimed at promoting worldwide fraternity and understanding between children. This date was chosen because on that day the Declaration of the Rights of Children was adopted by the UN.
In India Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru, whom children fondly called as Chacha (uncle) is closely associated with children. His birthday is celebrated as Children’s day. It falls on November 14th every year. Nehru used to like children a lot and even posed for photographs with them whenever possible. One of the more endearing pictures from history is a child pinning a rose on Nehru’s coat.
I wish all the children of India a very happy Children’s day.
