On the occassion of children’s day on 14th November, write a letter to Chacha Nehru
Today is your birthday, and I remembered you this morning as I woke up. First of all, wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
I have read about you in your biographies. I know that you are the first Prime Minister of India and how you worked hard to make India a Mordern nation. So you are called the architect of Modern India. I have visited Nehru Science Center and Planetarium which is made in your memory . I have also heard that you love children so we celebrate your birthday as Children’s Day.
Every Year my friends and I celebrate your birthday by wearing a rose on our dress. We cut cakes and also distribute chocolates in our school. But as this year there is a lockdown and schools are shut, we are not able to celebrate your birthday as before. But I promise after the lockdown next year we will celebrate your birthday again with great pomp and show.
I love this day and you are indeed the best leader.

I was delighted to know from your mother that you secured the first rank in 8th standard. Congratulations, to you. She also told me about your hard work, it is a very good sign that you study hard. But, Idhika study is not the do all and end all in life.
Besides, studies there is so much more to life. Certainly, you should play a little, at least an hour or two in a day. Playing regularly is necessary. Playing with friends releases tension, we feel fresh and light. Playing is a form of exercise which is very important for the body. If you do not play , you may get disorders at an early age. What good will all your achievements be if you fall sick and will not be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour. Playing is certainly not a waste of time but an essential part of life. Playing outdoor games will build your endurance in fighting diseases and thus make your body strong and healthy. As you know a ‘Healthy mind stays in a healthy body .
I know study is very important , but an all round development be it sports, dramatics or music will take you far ahead in life. Give time to everything, as you know ‘ All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’. I know you will reflect on my advise and implement it. Give my regards to uncle , aunt , and your little brother Arav.
