Children’s Day

<i><font lang="JA" size="1" face="ApexNew-BookItalic"><font lang="JA" size="1" face="ApexNew-BookItalic"><p align="left">On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Convention</p><p align="left">on the Rights of the Child, the Post of Slovenia and India</p><p align="left">Post agreed on a joint issue of two stamps to mark Universal</p><p align="left">Children’s Day. One stamp bears the image of a Slovene child,</p><p align="left">while the other bears the image of an Indian child.</p><p align="left">Countries throughout the world celebrate Children’s Day,</p><p align="left">but on different days. In Slovenia it is 20 November, while</p><p align="left">India celebrates it on 14 November, which is also the birth</p><p align="left">date of Jawaharlal Nehru.</p><p align="left">Nehru was the first prime minister of independent India</p><p align="left">starting in 1947, and he has garnered the greatest credit for</p><p align="left">India becoming independent from British rule. He is known</p><p align="left">as a great ally of justice and equality among nations. He</p><p align="left">worked continuously with world peace activist Mahatma</p><p align="left">Gandhi, and he also made friends with President Tito of</p><p align="left">Yugoslavia. A fascinating side note is that Nehru’s only</p><p align="left">daughter was Indira Gandhi, who was prime minister of</p><p align="left">India from 1966 to 1977 and then from 1980 until her death</p><p align="left">in 1984, when she was assassinated.</p><p align="left">Nehru emphasised the equality of children with a loving</p><p align="left">disposition towards them, and he saw in them the bright future</p><p align="left">of India. Children called him Chacha Nehru (Uncle Nehru) or</p><p align="left">just Chaffinch (Uncle). In Slovenia the name Jawaharlal Nehru</p><p align="left">is quite familiar to those with a knowledge of modern history,</p><p align="left">and in 2013 a bust of him was erected in Goriša Brda.</p><p align="left">Universal Children’s Day is supposed to be not just a day of</p><p align="left">partying for kids, but a day when we are conscious of their</p><p>rights and equality regardless of faith or origin.
