“Children are the hands by which we take hold of the heavens.”
-Henry Ward Beecher.
Children are the most innocent and lovely creatures who have the power to console any human. Every person has a thing or two to learn from the children. They are the most precious creatures in the world.

Of course a lot can be said about children. A special day is arranged every year to adore and celebrate the children. This special day is celebrated as the childrens day.
Every country celebrates children’s day on different days. In India we celebrate this day on November 14th, on the birthday of our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Nehru adored and loved children so much. He is very lovingly called by children as Chacha Nehru. There is many photographs taken of Nehru with children.
Talking of Nehru. He was a great freedom fighter. And because of the freedom struggle most of the time he was imprisoned by the British empire. He at that time had our little Indhira Gandhi with him. In spite of being in prison he maintained a constant touch with his small daughter. You know how he kept in touch with his daughter? Through the letters.
Nehru is one of the greatest fathers one can ever have. He taught wisdom to Indhira through his letters. His first letter was titled as The Book of Nature. When she was just 13 years old, Nehru started to write her detailed letters. His letters consists of a wide variety of subjects including geography, science, trade, epic, evolution, etc. All his letters are published as a collection named Letters from a Father to his Daughter.
Thus he imparted a wide knowledge on her which developed her into an efficinet politician in the future, leading the country as a Prime Minister.
Children are best imitators than a best learner. If you want to bring your child good, be good so that they can imitate you in a better way.
