Childrens’ Day is a day to remember a great leader, who in his quiet but determined way, laid the foundation to convert a nascent nation into a world power. His contributions to India and the world are always remembered. He had hope for the oppressed people of Asia, Africa and South America. He was a true democrat and a socialist. He was a writer, philosopher and secular. He was one of the strong pillars of Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).
Above all, he was a supporter of world peace, a tireless fighter for justice throughout the world. He lived for great causes. Further, it was Nehru who insisted that if the world was to exist at all; it must exist as one, Mr. Jaison Joseph, Kala(Art) Kuwait President, stated in a press release issued on the occasion.
