Childrens day11






The child is a charming presence attracting one and all by its smile, laughter, playfulness and innocence.Children’s Day is celebrated on 14th November in India as it's the birthday of Pandit Jawaharlala Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India.The reason why his birthday has been chosen for the celebration of children is because of his love and passion forchildren. While many countries have different days, 20th Nov is Universal Children’s day.

Let us raise our hearts for the children of India and of our times,who seem to grow faster than they should, neglecting and over-riding the charms of childhood, appearing to be bonsai productions  knowing too many things and acting as adults. Let the children be given the chance to play on the ground, water and in the open with others so that the vastness of nature may add wealth of health to their being. Let not the parents hamper or pamper their children, instead let them be themselves charming, good and Godly.
