New Delhi: The nation celebrates Children’s Day on November 14 every year with much gusto and fervour. It marks a tribute to the country’s first prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was fond of kids. Also known as ‘Chacha Nehru’, the late PM batted for children’s education and how important it is for everyone to have access to read and write.
