Ten popular Jawaharlal Nehru Quotes to Share on Bal Divas.

In India, we celebrate Children’s day as Bal Divas on 14th November every year. It’s in line with the International Children’s Day celebration on 20th November every year.

November 14th is the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He was the first prime minister of Independent India. Nehru was well known for his fondness towards children and children’s in India, affectionately called him Chacha Nehru.

In India also, universal children’s day were used to celebrate on 20th November before the death of Nehru. But after Nehru’s death, India unanimously decided to celebrate his birth day on November 14 as Children’s Day or Bal Divas in India.

The motive of children’s day celebration is to increase awareness of the rights, care and education of children.
