Bal Diwas popularly called as Children’s day, is celebrated every year on 14th of November all over India. Schools and various institutions celebrate this day with full energy and enthusiasm. Orphan children are specifically looked on this day. 


Children's Day is celebrated on the 14th of November in India as a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru, who was born on November 14, 1889. Popularly known as Chacha, Nehru was India’s First Prime Minister and he was specifically known for his love towards children. Earlier, 20th November used to be celebrated as children day along with UNO. He believed that children have innocent heart and they can win heart of everyone with their innocent and angelic smile.

J.L.Nehru used to state that, “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow.” Very aptly said, It was only his vision and positive approach towards future generations that India has developed to such an extent in past few years. According to NDTV, J.L. Nehru also had a role in setting up premier institutions in India such as IITs and AIIMS.


Following things are usually done on a children day celebration –

  1. Fun filled activities

  2. Special assemblies are organised everywhere.

  3. Motivational speeches are arranged too.

  4. Gifts and chocolates are distributed among children

  5. Various contests are held in schools

  6. Free pens and sweets or stationary are distributed among orphan or poor children.

  7. Importance of good education is shown to children.

So basically, Children’s day is just not a birth anniversary, it is celebrated to create a strong and energetic youth, which lead the future of India and take them to the new heights of success.

I would like to end the article with very famous wording,

"The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence." 
May you fly to the greatest of heights and forever remain grounded! 
Happy Children's Day!
