Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) Dr BD Mishra has conveyed his warm greetings to the children and the people of the State on the eve of Children’s Day, which commemorates the birth anniversary of the country’s first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
In his message, the Governor said that the children, on account of their tenderness, fragility and innocence, exclusively depend on their parents/ guardians and the society at large for their growth, life sustenance and physical well being. Every adult in the nation, thus, owes it to her or his child or ward to afford her or him the best facilities to grow up in a healthy and happy atmosphere.
Good upbringing of our children, nurtures a better future for all. We must, therefore, provide our children with the best opportunities to harness their potential and imbibe good values so that they become ideal citizens of our State.
Children’s Day, ipso facto, is a special reminder for every parent/ guardian as also the society to give all facilities to the children to enable them to progress with knowledge, dignity, confidence and compassion, he said.
“On this special occasion, I call upon every parent/ guardian to take a pledge to build a harmonious society which is empathetic to the healthy upbringing of our children,” the Governor said in his message, while appealing to them to “give their best today for their children’s tomorrow”.
