While, the occasion is a way of remembering the first Prime Minister of the country, it is also an occasion to celebrate children and acknowledge their position as the future of the nation. Jawaharlal Nehru was the first Prime Minister of India and he has a warm affection for children and so he is referred as Chacha Nehru.

Country's first PM Jawaharlal Nehru was born on 14 November 1889 in Allahabad.

Universal Children's Day is celebrated on November 20 in United Nations. On this special day of children in India, various institutions including schools, colleges, orphanages, corporate institutions, government institutions, NGOs organise special programmes for children and put an extra effort to make them happy by creating a positive and a more protective environment.

Most schools hold many competitions & cultural performance for Children's on this day. It is also a common practice to distribute gifts like clothes, toys and books to orphan children on this day.
