CHILDREN'S DAY SPEECH
Respected Headmaster, teachers and my dear friends,
Today we have assembled here to celebrate the Birth Anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru as Children's day. He was fondly called as Chacha Nehru by all children in a loving manner. He loved children very much so he decided to celebrate his birth day as children's day. Nehru was born on 14th November, 1889 in Allahabad. His father was Motilal Nehru and Mother was Swaroop Rani. Since from his childhood, he was very intelligent boy in all aspects. After completion of his schooling in Allahabad, he went to England for his higher studies . On completion of his studies, he returned to India in 1912 as a lawyer in profession. In India there were many movements started by different freedom fighters of India against the British people. So, Nehru also joined the Indian National Congress in 1920. It was the period of Mahatma Gandhi who leaded the whole freedom struggle. Nehru also got very much attached with the policies of Mahatma Gandhi that is 'Peace & Non-violence'.
He actively took part in all freedom movement started by Mahatma Gandhi. This made a great change in the freedom struggle. Slowly and slowly people started joining the struggle finally it is possible to consolidate a huge mob in the movement like Non-cooperation movement, Dandi March, Quite India Movement and many more. He went to jail for many times but that didn't stop him from fighting for the country . Finally India got its freedom on 15th August, 1947. Jawaharlal Nehru became the first prime Minister of India in 1951.
He was honoured by the country with Bharat Ratna in 1955.
So, on the behalf of the entire school I am wishing you all a very happy childrens day. Jai Hind!
