Essay On Children’s Day
Young children are considered to be the wealth of every nation. That is why Pandit Nehru said that the wealth of any country is safe in schools, not in banks. Children are the future of this country. Children are the axis of a family, society, and nation.
Every year Children’s Day is celebrated all over India in memory of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. It is a known fact that Nehru had immense love for children. He used to mix with children as if he was one amongst them. That is why all children used to call him ‘Chacha Nehru.’ He gave his birthday, 14th November as a gift to them to see a broad smile on their face. He loved their innocence, honesty, and kindness.
All schools celebrate Children’s Day by arranging events like debates, dances, songs, plays, essays, etc. The winners are given prizes. In Delhi, children gather at the National Stadium near the India Gate. They present group exercises, poems, cultural programs, etc. before the Prime Minister. He appeals to the children to serve the nation and follow the path that has been shown to us by Nehruji. In the end, the children are given roses, sweets, and prizes in his memory. Such types of programs are carried out in all other states also.
On Children’s Day, we should think about the welfare of children. The government should take strong actions to impart primary education to children. Firstly, child labor should be completely eradicated from this country. The teachers must be vigilant about the participation of students in various competitions. Children must be appreciated by giving prizes for their excellence in any field so that they are encouraged. There should be strong foundations on which the whole education system can stand firmly. The arrangements for Children’s Day should be done by keeping these things in mind. Children’s Day is as important as Independence Day and Republic day. On this day, we must get the co-operation from all citizens.
