Children’s Day or Bal Divas is celebrated across the states in India, in honour of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday, a man who truly believed that children are our real investment, and the one statesman who laid the foundation for India’s prominent educational institutes. This Monday, November 14th marked Children’s Day with several entities joining in the collective cause of children and the need to raise awareness around children’s rights in India.

Amidst this, many Indian brands joined in the celebrations, often taking us adults back into our childhood, or merely reminding us about our immense levels of curiosity and excitement that kept our childhood minds alive.
