A Short Speech on Children’s Day –
Today I’ve got an immense opportunity on this monumental occasion of Children’s Day to address you who are the true and most precious treasure of any country of the world, the future leaders, scientists, doctors, engineers, teachers who are expected to bring about radical transformations in the country and the world by causing development and prosperity for all human beings, by shunning any of the discrimination in the name of caste, colour and creed.
So expectations are very high on you, my dear little friends. But you are not little, this is a blunder to consider you little. Persons in young age have done wonder. In Indian Mythology, there are names of Dhruv and Prahlad. Swami Dayanand, a great Social Reformer, had taken the decision in his childhood. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, had created Facebook when he was only 19. It means he had started work on this project when he might have been 14 or 15.
So dear young men and women, don’t underestimate your energy and power just because you are little kids. The success is not related with age. You will have to start work right now as your destination is full of travails and seemingly tougher than it appears. For that the first and foremost duty of yours is to do the work whatsoever is assigned on you by your teachers, parents and society earnestly.
At present that work is getting education. You focus must be all in all on your studies. Prepare yourself for future. Make aim now and like Arjuna fix your eyes on that aim. You will see the future belongs to you. You can mould it for you, your family and nation. Dear young sons and daughters, Children’s Day is symbolic. All days belong to you.
You are fortunate that you have access to this great treasure of knowledge called education. But there are millions of other unfortunate children who are deprived of this wonderful facility that can convert man’s life for sure. We have also to think for those poor and deprived children. What can we do for them? There are many NGOs and other organizations which are doing a great work towards this direction. But they are always handicapped by the shortage of funds.
If not directly, you can held these destitute children through these organizations by sending them some money you can save from your pocket money. Your teachers can guide you in this direction. The country can only progress when all of its citizens get education. The ignorance ( darkness ) prevailed in the country can be removed with this light known as education. Getting freedom was difficult but to preserve it is more difficult. I can’t help crooning a couple of lines of a very beautiful Hindi song –
Hum laayen hain toofan se kishti nikal ke,
Is desh ko rakhna mere bacchon sambhal ke….
In English it goes as follows – We have sailed our boat ( Nation ) through a big storm ( Slavery ). Now it’s your duty to take care of this country.
With that I end my speech. I hope these words may influence some of you. And it they do, my job is done.
Thanks. And once again Happy Children’s Day.
