How you celebrate Children’s Day?

By Palak Patel Kadi: Children’s Day is celebrated on different dates in different countries. In India Children’s Day is celebrated on Birth Anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru on 14th November every year. Jawaharlal Nehru had a special bond with children and Roses. He used to say that “Children are like buds in a garden and they should be nurtured carefully and lovingly as they are the future of our nation”. United Nations(UN) has declared 20th November as Universal Children’s day from 1954. The main aim was to encourage increasing understanding and mutual exchange among the children. It also promotes welfare of children all around the world. The other motive to celebrate children’s day is to bring awareness among the children that have succumbed to violence-abuse, discrimination, exploitation. Unfortunately these motives are given less importance while celebrating children’s day all around the world. Various cultural events and performances organized for celebrating children’s day highlight such motive to a lesser extent. 05_Chitra Spardha In this information era, Children should also give tribute and should be aware of all those who have worked for Child Rights and their Development like Nobel Peace Prize 2014 winner Kailash Satyarthi, founder of Bachpan Bachao Andolan (Save the Childhood Movement) who fights for Indian children's rights and works as an activist against child labour. There are many Children all around the world who have shown their heroic actions like Malala Yousafzia, Nobel Peace Prize 2014 winner who works for girls right to education also have to be given tribute by all children around the world. Children’s Day should be celebrated as a day to create awareness among the children regarding various issues like child labour, discrimination, exploitation, mal nutrition, etc. Let’s laud all the organizations and person who contribute for the betterment of Children all around the world.
