Chacha Nehru's Gift To The Children Of India

Today is 14th November... and v all celebrate it as Children's Day and Chacha Nehru's B'day....

Was jst remembring those innocent and sweet days .... right from the day.. whn v stepped into ths beautiful world... till the date... where v r 2day....

Lets thank our parents who made our childhood so beautiful... lets thank them who made every possible things to giv us the happiness v asked for...

lets thank our teachers... who were always ther with us to guide us and to correct us at each and every step.....

Lets recollect some memories of Jawaharlal Nehru....

On 14th November, 1889, a son was born to an eminent lawyer, Motilal Nehru n his wife Swaroop Rani. They named him Jawaharlal. He was brilliant and compassionate and was grtly loved by al..... And when India gained its independence.... ths outstanding statesman was named.... the first Prime Minister of the country.

He was a perfect blend of eastern values and western thinking..... and encouraged technological progress. But he was also a man of letters.... and a great poet and wrote some famous works like..... 'Glimpses of World History' and 'Discovery of India'. His letters to his daughter, Indira, was also compiled into a book and reflects his philosophical outlook..... his compassion and above all, his tender heart.

His gr8 luv for roses as well as children is a well-known fact..... In fact he often compared the two.... saying tht children were like the buds in a garden...... They should be carefully and lovingly nurtured..... as they were the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow..... He felt tht childrn r the real strength of a country and the vry foundation of society..... Mst importantly he believed in giving equal opportunities to girls and boys..... In fact his own little grl grew up to be the third Prime Minister of India.....

Quite naturally, he was the 'beloved' of all the children who gave him the endearing name of 'Chacha Nehru'..... As a tribute to ths grt man and his genuine love for children..... his b'day is celebrated all over India as 'UNIVERSAL CHILDREN'S DAY'...... A day of fun and fanfare..... celebrated with singing, dancing and storytelling in schools and colleges as well as on radio and TV..... Special functions r held to honour children all over the country.....oh..i miss those school days.... :(

The significance of Children's Day......

Chacha Nehru's real msg was..... to provide our children with a safe and loving environment in which to grow..... as well as..... giving them ample and equal opportunities.... thru which they can take grt strides and contribute 2 d progress of d nation..... Ths day serves as a reminder to each and every one of us, to renew our commitment..... to the welfare of children... and teach them to live by true standards of life so tht they can leave their footprints.... (oh... i feel like wrting somthng abt it...) nd to set a good example of themselves.... :)

Hey....Next time shall write somethng abt footprints....
Till then... bye n take care :)
