Children’s Day – Speech
We are the youth of our country. We are the future of our country and today it is our day. A very warm welcome to respected teachers and fellow students. Today I got the opportunity to stand in front of you and give you a speech on “children’s day”.
We, the children, are considered one of the faces of God. Somebody has well said that “God cannot be present everywhere so he sent children”.
A child can change the atmosphere. A simple laugh or smile can relax human so easily. Children act as stress buster. They are the symbol of happiness and positivity. A conversation with the baby or a child can absolutely make your day. Children are always compared to Gods because they are so pure by heart. They treat everyone equally and also the innocence and truth always give another level satisfaction.
Children’s day is a day of celebration for kids. It is celebrated worldwide though dates are different it is celebrated in almost every country. It is a day dedicated to children. In India, it is celebrated on the 14th of November. We all aware of the name Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He has played a big role in India’s freedom. He is considered one of the leading freedom fighter. He was the first Prime Minister of India.
Towards the midnight of 14th August, 1947, he was the one who declared the Independence of India through the speech called “Tryst with dynasty”. Many specific and major decision has been taken by him. Apart from achievement and controversies, Jawaharlal Nehru is also known for the affection and care towards children. He was so much fascinated by kids. The Children’s day is celebrated in his memory because his fascination towards children along with it he was born on 14 November 1889.
Children are considered as the youth of the country. They are the future. If they will get proper and best facilities in present only then they will be able to give better progress and development in future. Children’s day is celebrated to know the worth of kids. To tell them their importance, to look at their needs and demands and necessity.
Every child deserves some specific treatment and nurture conditions. All families’ background and economic status are not the same which badly affects the lives of children. If a child belongs to a rich family, he might be living his best life without any stress and burden. But, if a child belongs to a poor family he might living under pressure. He might be ignorant towards his studies and more focused on earning and hence giving a contribution to child labour.
Multiple stories have multiple backgrounds. Children’s day is mainly celebrated to know how valuable kids are. Children deserve certain respect and importance within their family, society and in the country. Some rules or regulation should be followed for every kid. For instance, every child should get the best facility. Education and food should not be achieved through hard struggles. Children should be motivated to achieve their own dreams instead of pushing them to some another field which they don’t like.
Also, for kids of poor family government should launch attractive schemes and funds which will attract poor family to send their kids to school for education and enlightening their future. Also, some seminar and parents teacher interaction should be organised so that parents would know the worth of education and also be a part of development.
Children’s day is celebrated in a excited and fun manner in every educational institute. It is mostly enjoyed in the schools since school programs are organized. Many competitions regarding dance, singing, drama, arts and other field are organized. Children participate in them and explore their talents. Teachers also pretend to behave like kids. It is one day completely dedicated to kids. Children seem to enjoy this day very much since they are considered to be the priority on that day. Not by the just school but they also get special attention and affection by their family.
At the last of my speech, I just want to say children are next generation. Every one of them deserves equal respect and lives. We should not discriminate among kids. We should consider each other to be a part of a common family. If we see some needy kid then for the sake of humanity we should help him. Our simple help can play a vast role in someone’s life. Education, food and play these are the role of children. These roles should not be snatched by them. They should not pressure to study hard. They should not be pressurized to earn. They should not be considered inferior. They should not be dragged off from their dream. We should hear the child and try to see the concept of the world through his vision.
Their innocence speaks a lot. Let children be free and let they get the opportunity to express themselves freely.
Thank you, everyone, for listening to my speech and giving your crucial time.
