- Children’s Day is really every day, because those who are entrusted with the care of our children – be they parents, teachers, social workers, or simply benign old uncles and aunts – are constantly made aware of the presence of children, and cannot even for one moment neglect them or their many needs.
- Children are always hungry – not just for food, but for knowledge, adventure, friendship, fun – and it is the sacred duty of every adult Indian to try and provide them with the opportunities that lead to these things; not only for one’s own children, but for all children near us, no matter where they come from or where they go.
- Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s First Prime Minister, loved children, and understood their world. He could identify with a child’s way of thinking; that is why children took him to their heart. It was a happy inspiration that brought about the celebration of Children’s Day on the birth-day of Jawaharlal Nehru.
