On November 14, the first Prime Minister of the country is the birthday of Jawaharlal Nehru Pandit who is celebrated as Children’s day. Nehru had a special accessory for children. He believed that children are the future and the country will be in their hands in the future. Therefore, his birthday is dedicated to children and on November 14, Children’s Day is celebrated with great fanfare across the country.
Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru was born on November 14, 1889. He came from a family of migrant Cashmere Pandits. He received his early education at home under private tutors. At the age of 15, he went to Scarify in England for further education. Although he served as a lawyer for two years in Britain, but was directly immersed in politics after he returned to India in 1912.
The development and education of children in the country was the vision of Nehru. In fact, this was under the vision of Nehru for the youth of the country that fundamental higher education institutions like the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), the entire Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and others were established.
Nehru was influenced by Gandhi’s thinking:
In 1916, he married Kamala Kaul. In the next year of the marriage, Indira Priyadarshini was born in her house who became the first Prime Minister of women of the country in the next few years. As an advocate, Nehru’s tenure was small. He was very under the inflluence of Mahatma Gandhi’s thought against the British.
Construction of new India after Independence:
This was the period when Nehru had completely deserted the British against the British. After being detained several times in 1929, he was imprisoned for the first time. During this time he also lost his parents and wife. Nehru, through his understanding and studies, created a different atmosphere of revolution in the country. After independence, when he became the Prime Minister of the country, he made the future of India coming from his strategies. He was called the Prime Minister of the public.
Nehru believed children to be a future:
Nehru also made many important decisions to secure employment for youth in freedom. Under his command, the country’s largest steel plant was planted in Bhilai, Rourkela and Bokaro. The most prominent institutes in the field of education, IIT, IIM and IISC also opened in the country of Nehru.
Nehru was not only a good leader and a speaker, he was also a good writer. He has written several books in English, ‘the Discovery of India’, ‘Glimps of World History’ and biography ‘toword freedom’. His letters, written in childhood to daughter Indira, were later published later as the Father’s Book Letters to His Daughter. She always supported the education of children.
