Children Day is a commemorative day celebrated every year in honor of children. The date varies by country. World Children’s Day is celebrated on November 20 each year to commemorate the Declaration of the “Rights of the Child” by the United Nations General Assembly. In India, it is celebrated on November 14, the birthday of the first Prime Minister of independent India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He was a strong advocate for the education of Indian children and youth and asserted that education was imperative for the growth of the country. He was affectionately called “Chacha Nehru” by children.
