They also extend their greetings to children across the nation on Children’s Day.

Children across the country remember him as Chacha Nehru (Uncle Nehru). He was very fond of children and therefore his birthday is observed as Children’s Day. On this day, chocolates and gifts are often distributed among children, while schools organize different events such as debates, and music and dance performances.

Pt Nehru was born on November 14, 1889, and was known for his love for children. Before 1964, Children’s day was celebrated in India on November 20, which was observed as the Universal Children’s Day by the United Nations. But after the death of Nehru in 1964, the nation decided to celebrate his birthday as Bal Diwas (Children’s Day) to honour his memory.
