Remembering 'chacha' Nehru

Children are the future of India. By studying hard and imbibing good values they can contribute to building India as a strong and prosperous nation in which all sections of society enjoy the benefits of economic and social advancements. Today, India stands at the threshold of a new era of progress. India is rapidly progressing and is emerging as a global power. The world is watching India's growth with admiration. This progress has been possible because of the dedicated work and commitment of the people of India. The children of today, when they grow up, must continue to work hard as they will have the responsibility for ensuring a glorious future of India. I would like the children of India not only to work for the economic progress of the nation but also to contribute to a caring society that provides the benefits of growth to all, particularly the weak and the disadvantaged.

I would like all of you to be sensitive to the fact that many children are not fortunate to have the opportunity of getting a good education. You can be sensitive to your surroundings by helping at least one disadvantaged child. By doing so, you become a child who cares for others. I would like to see every child, boy and girl in the country to be touched by the light of modern education. Empowerment of women is particularly important, as I believe this leads to the empowerment of the nation. I have a special message for the girl child, who will grow up to be equal partners to shape the destiny of this country. You must not give up your education at any cost - as the education of the girl child is critical for our progress both economic and social. When we educate a girl child, we have not only educated an individual but also a family. With these words, I wish all the children of India, a very happy Children's Day.
