Children’s Day 2019: History & Significance of Children’s Day Celebration in India

As the name suggests, Children’s Day celebrates the country’s young minds, and pushes for their rights, safety and education.
⮚ Also known as Bal Diwas in India, the celebrations date back to 1956, when the day was observed as ‘Universal Children’s Day’ on November 20, keeping
with the United Nations. After Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s death in 1964, however, it was decided the celebrations be moved to commemorate his birth anniversary and his fondness for children. Since then, November 14 has been celebrated as Children’s Day in India.
⮚ The first Prime Minister of independent India was fondly known and addressed as Chacha Nehru. He was a strong advocate of children’s education, and was also involved in the establishing of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), the Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) and the National Institutes of Technology (NIT). He always believed in the country’s young minds, and emphasised on their welfare and growth
