Children's Day, also referred to as "Bal Diwas", is celebrated every year on 14 November on the birth anniversary of India's first Prime Minister Pt Jawaharlal Nehru.

Fondly referred as "Chacha" by kids, Nehru was fond of both children and roses. He was often quoted as saying that children should always be carefully and lovingly nurtured as they are the future of the nation and citizens of tomorrow.

Children's Day was first celebrated in 1964 after Nehru's death.

Schools across the country conduct special functions on this day, during which kids dress up like Chacha Nehru in his trademark outfit with a red rose in the buttonhole.

However, apart from being celebrated in schools and colleges, the day is nowadays also marked by wishes on social media.

Several Bollywood celebs have wished their fans and followers "Happy Children's Day" on Twitter.

Here are some of their tweets:
