Youth stories change with age however the guiltlessness of those days continues as before, Pritha Banerjee memories while we observe Children’s Day
This Children’s Day, let the child inside you, come out! Let that kid breathe this 14th November. There is so much that you can do for yourself. Do what you used to like in your childhood. I am doing things like Drawing, dancing, instance, enjoying swings, running or eating chocolates.
Children’s Day is celebrated in India on 14 November, which is also the birth anniversary of the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. Universal Children’s Day is celebrated on November 20, as it marks the anniversary when UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1989) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1990). Thus, Children’s Day is a celebration to increase awareness of the rights, care, and education of children, worldwide.
Ring a neighbours’ doorbell and run this was one of the best movements of childhood. Let’s do it again. It was so much fun then, and it would be fun even now. It is annoying for your neighbour, but, it is Children’s Day! Ring the doorbell of the apartment in the same corridor as yours and run! Do not forget to open your door before.
We all used to love drawing, Colouring, crayons, Sketch pens, watercolours. So many more things which used to bring out our creative out-side. The drawing book would be favourites in the bag. Get your hands on some crayons, pencil, eraser and a plan sheet of paper. See if you can still draw that beautiful.
Fancy dress, No classes, treat from teachers and Chacha Nehru Ji has thoughts that come to mind whenever someone talks about Children’s Day. If you are in school, this is the best day of the year. Over a while, the celebrations for this day have changed a lot. Not just that, being a 21st-century children’s is a big task. I am just talking about the highly competitive environment created for the classroom, on the sports field, and at extra-curricular activities. I am talking about the 21st Century little born child using gadgets like smartphones, space called the internet.
Every year’s on the 14th of November, all of us on Children’s day we were given candies in the school, the extra curriculum activities, the games and hell lot of things which we now miss in rather days.
