childrens-dayChildrens Day reminds that every child comes with a message that God is not yet discouraged of man. Children’s Day is to celebrate “childhood”. On Children’s Day tribute is paid to all children in the world. Children are loved by one and all. They win over our hearts with their angelic eyes and innocent smiles. It makes one realize that maybe that’s the way God wanted us to be. India’s first prime minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, was born on November 14. After his death in 1963, his birthday has been celebrated, as Children’s Day in India. Children’s Day is not just a day to let the future generation have its say. It is a day to remember a leader who, in his quiet but determined way, laid the foundation to convert a nascent nation into a world power. But why Children’s Day? Apart from being known for his skills as a statesman, Nehru was also immensely fond of children. The more popular and famous of Nehru’s pictures show him with children. A few little ones voiced their feelings about the day and the every child’s favorite leader. Children to Nehruji were little adults in the making. The story also goes that he started to wear a rose on his jacket after a child pinned one on it. Nehruji’s affinity to children is well recorded, for he said, “Our one goal, our bounden duty, is to gift the future of India – our children – a country filled with peace and tranquility”. Children’s Day year after year thus, symbolizes Nehruji’s genuine love for children and is a tribute to the great man that Nehruji was. It is the day when children all over the country are pampered with goodies. From the schoolchild’s point of view, the best thing perhaps is that it is a special day at school – they need not wear uniforms and are given sweets. The celebration on Children’s Day was not just limited to regular schools but even special schools. The Skills and Ability School in Nerul held various activities including solving the puzzle, embroidery, coloring and painting for its special students. The school had also invited students from the regular stream to join the celebrations. The aim of the school was to show the hidden talents of the special students. Another special school that celebrated Childrens Day was Euro school in Airoli. The celebration was week long with students making greeting cards and postcards. Parents of the students also donated dal and rice to the institute on the day. Indeed, there are; “no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child, there are seven million.
