Children's day is special day for the children. Universally, Children's Day is celebrated on 20th November, every year.But in India it is celebrated on 14th November, because the date marks the birth anniversary of legendary freedom fighter and independent India's first Prime Minister - Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru.
As a tribute to Nehru and his love for children, Children's Day is celebrated on his birth date.
The reason why his birthday has been chosen for the celebration of children is because of his love and passion for children. Pandit Nehru is also regarded as the country's special child to have been the first Prime Minister, after her long struggle for independence.
The day is marked with a lot of activities for children. But the fact remains that only a section of the country's children actually have an opportunity to celebrate their existence. Schools organize events and activities that their students thoroughly enjoy.
