Children’s Day in India is November 14th, because that’s Nehru’s birthday, and Nehru loved children. Isn’t that sweet? And, just like World Animal Day and all the other sub-holidays, I am marking the occasion with a theme video post. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
This is one of those topics where I am kind of over-whelmed by options. But I am going to start with something recent, a sweet song that treats teenagers as the children they really are.
And then there’s one of my favorite films from 2016, which also has a beautiful view of children, Dhanak.
I don’t like this movie as a whole nearly as much as I like Dhanak, but I love this song!

Okay, I can’t leave you with that! It’s too sad! Let’s go out on a high note, a super super catchy and fun and ridiculous song! Be warned, it will stay in your head alllllllllll day.
