Here are some of the remarkable quotes by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru to celebrate this special day to share with friends and family.
“Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the nation's future and the citizens of tomorrow.”
“The object of education was to produce a desire to serve the community as a whole and to apply the knowledge gained not only for personal but for public welfare.”
“The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country.”
“A university stands for humanism, for tolerance, for reason, for the adventure of ideas and for the search for truth.”
"The vast army of children across the world, outwardly different kinds of clothes, and yet so very like another. If you bring them together, they play or quarrel, but even their quarrel is some kind of play. They do not think of differences amongst themselves, differences of class or caste or colour or status. They are wiser than their father(s) or mother(s).”
