- Today’s children are tomorrow’s citizens. It is the sacred responsibility of the government of every country to take special care of its children, to look after their welfare and to ensure their proper growth under healthy, happy conditions. So with India. And ‘Children’s Day‘ on November 14 every year, which happily coincides with the birth anniversary of that great lover of children, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, is to remind the State, the parent and the teachers of their duty by the nation’s children.
