In India, Children’s Day, which is also referred to as Bal Diwas, is celebrated every year on November 14 to pay tribute to Independent India’s first prime minister Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru.
Earlier, this day was celebrated on November 20 but as Chacha Nehru loved children, it was decided that his birth anniversary will be celebrated as Children’s Day.
On this day, schools and educational institutions organize various cultural programmes, children come dressed in colorful clothes and teachers deliver special performances to express their love for their students.

Inspiring Jawaharlal Nehru’s quotes for Children:
“As they grow up, unfortunately, their natural freedom is often eclipsed by the teaching and behaviour of elders. At school, they learn many things, which are no doubt useful, but they gradually forget that essential thing to be human and kind, playful and make life richer for ourselves and others.”
“The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country.”
“Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow. Only through right education can a better order of society be built up.”
“The vast army of children across the world, outwardly different kinds of clothes, and yet so very like another. If you bring them together, they play or quarrel, but even their quarrel is some kind of play. They do not think of differences amongst themselves, the difference between class or caste or colour or status. They are wiser than their father(s) or mother(s).”
“Failure comes only when we forget our ideals and objectives and principles.”
“The only way to reform them (children) is to win them over with love. So long as a child is unfriendly, you can’t mend his ways. He can be disciplined, if his attention is drawn to some other activity, like a voluntary body in Delhi (1960s) ‘Bal Sahyog’ used to do. They learn many things there during vocations, without any compulsion of sort and then their minds get diverted to constructive channels.”
“The object of education was to produce a desire to serve the community as a whole and to apply the Knowledge gained not only for personal but for public welfare.”
“Children do not think of differences amongst themselves.”
“What we really are matters more than what other people think of us.”
“There is perhaps nothing so bad and so dangerous in life as fear. Life is like a game of cards.”
“It seldom goes to the timid who are ever afraid of the consequences.”
“Time is not measured by the passing of years but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves.”
