Children's Day is celebrated in honour of Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first prime minister of Independent India who also loved kids. The day is celebrated not only to remember "Chacha" Nehru's fondness for children but also to celebrate the young and their potential. It is a day to make kids feel special and to motivate them to build a better future.
