Children’s Day 2018: Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.: The nation is celebrating the 130th birth anniversary of the first prime minister of independent India, Pt Jawaharlal Nehru. Pt Nehru, who was born on November 14, 1889, was known for his love for children and was fondly called Chacha Nehru. He once said: “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country”.
