India celebrates Children’s Day on November 14, the birth anniversary of our first Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was known for his love and affection for children, besides the country he headed.
Known as Nehru Chcha for more than five generations since the Independence, Nehru is the architect of modern India’s economic and foreign policies and vouched for peace and non-alignment when the whole world was beset with the Cold war polemics between the United States and Then Soviet Union or present-day Russia.
His vision to keep the country independent of Cold War politics helped visualize our own vision of development and it is relevant even to this day the world is visibly getting drawn into polarized groups again with China or Russia trying to set up second and third regimes .
Today is his 125th birth anniversary and Google India has conducted its sixth edition of Doodle 4 competition where the theme was ‘A place in India I wish to visit’.
