Children’s Day, or Bal Diwas, is celebrated each year on November 14. The day marks Jawaharlal Nehru’s birth anniversary. Pandit Nehru, or Chacha Nehru as he was fondly referred to, was India’s first Prime Minister and known across the nation for his warm affection for children.
Pandit Nehru was born on November 14, 1889. On Children’s Day, children across the nation honour the memory of Chacha Nehru. Schools and colleges across India often organise fun-filled activities to mark the occasion of Children’s Day.
