Which quotes of Jawahar Lal Nehru should be known by all the children?


Thinker | Posted on

Jawahar Lal Nehru was known for his love for children and how he used to see the potential in children and youth of becoming the India’s future. It was this vision of the first prime minister of the independent India, which made his birthday the day of the nation’s children.


As he used to say, “Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow.”

Here are 10 of my favorite quotes by Jawahar Lal Nehru which according to me, should be known and felt by each and every child.

1. Without peace, all other dreams vanish and are reduced to ashes.

2. Life is like a game of cards. The hand you are dealt is determinism; the way you play it is free will.

3. Time is not measured by the passing of years but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves.

4. The policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.

5. To be in good moral condition requires at least as much training as to be in good physical condition.

6. Obviously, the highest type of efficiency is that which can utilize existing material to the best advantage.

7. Let us be a little humble; let us think that the truth may not perhaps be entirely with us.

8. The person who talks most of his own virtue is often the least virtuous.

9. Great causes and little men go ill together.

10. The man who has gotten everything he wants is all in favor of peace and order.

He may have cherished Children yet the incongruity is that Primary Education was ignored in Nehru time.

While a ton was accomplished for specialized and advanced education and substantial ventures. However, designation of assets for essential training was severly low which has been contended by numerous business analysts.

Japan concentrated on it's proficiency rate and training from the beginning, that is the reason it was even ready to come out of Nuclear assaults.

Presently observe us, we despite everything have farming as most noteworthy employable segment while it contributes least to the GDP.

While I acknowledge Nehruji for how we had the option to quicken advancement post pilgrim period, yet I think if there was more spotlight on essential training, 75% of country India won't have been living under Rs 33 every day.
