‘Children are like buds in a garden; and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow’ – Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru
At ten, we would be secretly reading fairy tales and be ashamed of letting others know of it. Now that we are beyond the adolescent age, we’d read them openly. At our age, we put away childish things, including the fear of immaturity and the desire to be grown up. Childhood is the golden time when we seldom think of the future. And memories of childhood are like a dream that stays even after waking up.
Children’s day is the perfect time to recall & rejoice the wishes that came true and dreams that gave us wings, to fly & be here today. Young minds are assets to the nation and hope for a bright future. Let us come together this year and solemnly promise to inculcate, in our young generation, the true moral values; and impart education that helps one excel in life and not just academics.
Youth is the decisive phase of our life and every person deserves understanding it, through the eyes of those who have seen it better. Life gives us many chances to learn but what we have grasped in our early days of life is what that has framed us and our personality.
‘Values and knowledge are not what we get in books but what life has taught us’.
Young minds play a crucial role in success and development of a nation, as they are going to bring either a positive or a negative change in our country. It is our duty to polish the raw minds to enshrine and reflect the grace of a compassionate society, the way we were nurtured until here.
Today’s youth, if rightly guided, will not just excel in their capabilities but also make a better tomorrow for everyone around them. This little of every single person makes the society a better place to live in. Awareness of people towards the rights, care, and education of children is important. And this children’s day is a crucial time to accept our role in framing the society and take forward a step by celebrating this day with a motive. This little can be expected of every single person. Working on young minds may not be an easy task. But a little effort will be worth it someday. Until then, be the child with a child; enjoy the purity of your soul and let freely fly the mischievous child in you.
‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up’ - Pablo Picasso
Bring out the little one, hidden somewhere within you and celebrate this children’s day. Celebrate the day of the adorable souls! Laugh with them, and ensure their involvement in your bad days only to make them value the good times and of family, relationships, love, and humanity. Make time for children; instil in them, the respect which starts from within the home. Day-care & school can never give the values & virtues of Humanity that parents can inculcate within the child. Don’t make comparisons, but bring out the best in your child.
‘A child can always teach, an adult, three things. To be happy with no reason, to always be busy with something and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires’ – Paulo Coelho.
India’s first Prime Minister, also known as, Chacha Nehru, was quite fond of the young ones and truly believed in the innocence and righteous care, childhood revolves around. Therefore, every year India observes his birth anniversary, November 14th, as Children’s day. Students organise various cultural programmes and performances in their schools and colleges as an enthusiastic feast to the day. Let’s learn from the innocent brains and celebrate India’s bright future with a pledge to safeguard the innocence and uphold their rights. Celebrate this children’s day not just as a celebration of childhood but a toast to the tender innocence of a pure soul.
