Oats Corn Sandwich

In India, children’s day is celebrated on the 14th of November every year on the birth anniversary of first PM of India. Before the death of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Indians celebrated children’s day on 20th November (international children’s day by U.N). As our first prime minister loved children the most. He once said “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow.” The day celebrates and acknowledges children’s rights.

Children’s day is celebrated in almost every school across India. In my school, various cultural programs, play’s, fetes and fancy dress competitions were organised. Children dress in Chacha Nehru’s signature attire, a red rose tucked in their sherwanis. Colourful carnivals and fetes were organised and our teachers put up stalls of food, toys and games on the occasion of children’s day.

Income earned from the stalls, usually went to charities for children or donated to orphanages. That is the spirit of children’s day. We celebrated it with great enthusiasm fun and much love.
