India celebrates Children's Day November 14 as a tribute to her first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, who was born on the day in 1889.

Jawaharlal Nehru, fondly called Chacha Nehru was known for his love for children. On this day, chocolates and gifts are often distributed among children, while schools organize different events such as debates, and music and dance performances.

India started celebrating Children's Day from 1959, when it used to be on November 20, which the UN designated as the universal Children's Day.
