Children's Day is celebrated across India on this day.

To mark this occasion, goodies are distributed among children, while schools organize different events.

He left an unmatched legacy, driven by his deep commitment to India's freedom, and his guidance of a hopeful democracy towards greatness". "The INC wishes you a Happy Children's Day".
