It was during a world conference for the general well being of children in 1925, that an idea of observing a particular day for the children was proclaimed. United Nations suggested 20th November as the Universal Children’s Day. It was established to encourage all countries to institute a day, to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and also to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world’s children, and bring awareness to all the children around the globe who have been subjected to violence in the forms of abuse, exploitation and discrimination.
In India, Children’s Day is celebrated on 14th Nov, in the honor of Shri Jawar Lal Nehru, who was a great leader and the first prime minister of India. He worked passionately for the welfare of children and the youth soon after independence. He was passionate about welfare, education, and development of children in India. Pt. Nehru was very fond of children and thus became popular as Chacha Nehru among his young admirers.
The real essence of children’s day is to understand the importance of childhood in our lives. The principles and disciplines learned as a child are responsible for what he or she becomes in the future, thus childhood should be celebrated. This day is a reminder to all the adults about children’s right to enjoy their childhood without any boundaries and to be given basic education for a better life.
