Children's Day in India

Universally, Children’s Day is celebrated on 20th November and in India this day has been preponed to 14th November, the date marks the birth anniversary of India's first prime minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Jawaharlal Nehru loved children and was popular among them as "chacha" Nehru, (the word meaning of "chacha" in Hindi is "uncle"). 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.

Children's Day is celebrated all over India, especially at the school level with fancy dress copetitions and meetings. There are also community activities with stress on children's involvement.
