Happy Children's Day

November 14th, Children's day, People are celebrating this day by making their kid's happy. There are several programs organized for kids in different parts of the country. All kids who are having their parents & financial stability get a chance to celebrate or utilize the day. What about those poor souls who don't have parents or parents who are financially stable. Who takes care of them other than God? Is God arranging them a children's day celebration? Money, power & manipulation are the keywords of celebrations. People who are not having atleast one among these has no chance to celebrate.

I have never celebrated children's day other than the programs arranged by my school people. My parents preferred helping those poor & needy children than entertain me or my brother. Being a middle class family, we weren't big shots, but they had a mind to share whatever they can & they did that with poor kids everytime. For my parents everyday was children's day because they used to feed 1 or more than 1 poor child.

Since when did people started wishing "Happy Children's Day"? How many of us know the purpose & reason behind children's day? I am sure that not everybody will be able to answer this or may be atleast many people forget's this. Irrespective of this fact, how many of us have the child in us alive? Most of us work or study & prefer running for the career goal, that is our ultimate goal, but to celebrate or wish children's day this is not enough. We need to make sure that we are doing somthing different which is helping atleast 1 child to make out children's day wishes come true.

What have we dont for kid's? In our country where the economy is still growing & corruption & Controversies being the king & queen, what are we doing for our Kid's? Nothing other than some animation films. Even there are no efforts taken to abolish child labour or kidnapping or child prostitution. We are living in the Cyber Age & people prefer watching child porn, Is this something good for our kidz? Is that all we can give a kid in our country? I love my country, but it has lost its charm.

Being a child for many years & i believe am still a kid for my parents, i prefer doing something good for atleast a single kid. There are many ways to do that, but we need to find time & initiate it. Am not sure about how many people reads this blog, but whoever reads, please make sure that you can atleast Happy today. That is the best children's day wish you can give to any kid in the world. BE IT YOURS OR ANYONE ELSE'S.....
