Jawaharlal Nehru was popularly known as Chacha Nehru in India. Jawaharlal Nehru loved children of his nation and wished that they should shine like the twinkling stars of the sky and rise to lofty heights.

This great dreamer of India was born on 14th November 1889 in Allahabad (U.P.). His birthday is celebrated as Children’s Day all over India. Jawaharlal Nehru was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He had all the luxuries of the world at his feet. His father Motilal Nehru appointed highly experienced teachers to teach him.

Jawaharlal was not allowed to take anything without permission in the house. One day, Nehru took his father’s pen by mistake and got a thrashing by his father for taking the pen. But Jawaharlal loved his father, as he knew his father too loved him, thus he ignored his father’s trashing and carried on with his life. Motilal Nehru appointed teachers to teach him swimming and horse riding. Best tutors were kept to develop his personality and impart values of life, so that he could become one of the esteemed citizens of his country.

Jawaharlal was married to Kamla Kaul on 8th February 1916. In the year 1917, he gave birth to the nation’s blooming flower Indira Priyadarshini.

Jawaharlal was a great dreamer. He wanted to eliminate the curse of poverty, ignorance, unemployment and disease from the root. He didn’t want to rest till his last breath. He wanted to toil day and night to keep the flag of his country high.

Jawaharlal left for heavenly abode on 27th May 1964 at the age of 75. His last written lines were:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep but 1 have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.

 Jawaharlal Nehru died after writing these verses written by Robert Frost.

Jawaharlal Nehru may not be in between as today. but this gem of a person shall be remembered till the world cease to exist.
