Children's Day to be celebrated across India in a variety of ways
On November 14, each year, India celebrates Children's Day to commemorate the birthday of the first prime minster of independent India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru with special fun activities, painting, fancy dress competitions, and fairs for children.

Here are some of Chacha Nehru's one-liners on children

-At school, they (children) 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.

-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.

-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.

-They (children) do not think of differences amongst themselves, the difference between class or caste or colour or status.
