National Children Award

“Life's aspirations come in the guise of children.” - Rabindranath Tagore
While the well-being of our children is imperative for national development, it should be deemed as an end in itself. It is the responsibility of the country to provide adequate opportunity and support for the holistic growth and development of children as mandated by the Constitution of India.
