About : 

  • Every year, India celebrates the 14th November, the birth day of late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, as Children’s Day. This shows the importance which the First Prime Minister and the builder of modern India attached to children.
  • The children are our most valuable national assets. The future of the country lies in their hands and we owe it to them and to the nation to remember that we shape this future by our actions of today. It is imperative that children be given all opportunities to develop their personalities in a manner which will enable them to develop their responsibilities as full-fledged citizens of tomorrow.
  • We need to focus the collective attention of all our citizens on Children, their problems and their welfare, their potentials and their talents. It is the responsibility of not only the state, the teacher and the parents but also of every citizen to see that children grow up in a happy and healthy environment, conducive to their fullest development. The message of Children’s Day would be delivered home if we all realise our duties towards children.
  • There are many ways of reminding the people about their responsibilities towards children. Stamps seek to communicate the message in a very effective way. The Children’s Day Stamp fulfils the mission of propagating the awareness of our duty to the attainment of the right of children to blossom forth into ideal citizens of the future.
