Children’s Day is celebrated on November 14 all over the world. An important day is dedicated to the vulnerable inhabitants of the planet who need the support of adults. The expression “the future is our children” fully reflects the essence of the coming years. But to build a happy tomorrow, you need to solve problems today.
A special date celebration takes place in India. The day was first celebrated in 1948: the name was different – Flower Day. People collected money, called on the UN to pay attention to current problems, sold flower tokens. Until 1954, events were not held annually, but later strengthened. The idea remained the same – collecting donations, caring for disadvantaged children.
November 14 was not chosen by chance. On this day, the first prime minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, was born. During his lifetime, he was kind to children, paid attention to the difficulties, took care of them, as well as the future of the state. Interestingly, he even had the nickname “Chacha Nehru”.
Various events are held across the country. Participation is easy for everyone! Colossal work has been done over the years, but there is still a lot of work ahead, so people need to unite.
Amazing facts about children:
- newborns cannot see blue;
