India Post has issued a set of four stamps and a Miniature Sheet on the occasion of Children's Day.
In India, Children's Day is celebrated on November 14, after the birthday of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He was the first Prime Minister of India after independence. As is known, he had an extreme love for children. Nehru worked passionately for the welfare of children and youngsters soon after independence. He was keen about welfare, education, and development of children in India. He was fond of children and thus became popular as "Chacha Nehru" (Uncle Nehru) among his little admirers.
