Children’s Day is celebrated on 14 November every year on the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. He is remembered for being fond of young children who used to affectionately address him as ‘Chacha Nehru’. The day is celebrated across the country to raise awareness on various issues related to children, including their education, child rights, abuse etc.
On this today many schools organize many cultural programs in which teachers sing and dance for their students. Various types of institutions organize competitions for children as well.
