Stamp Information : Children's day commemoration stamp November 14, 1964. The Indian Posts and Telegraphs Department has, since the year 1957, been bringing out special stamps to mark the observance of Children's Day each year on the 14th November. Various themes connected with the care and we;;-being of children have been depicted on them. Children's Day has acquired a special significance for us in this country as it falls on the 14th November, which also happens to be the birth anniversary of our late Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who is unfortunately no longer with us. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's love for children and solicitude for their welfare are too well known. The tiny tots always had a special corner in Panditji's heart and he was never happier than when in the company of children. During his lifetime, child welfare made great strides in this country. It is no wonder that children all over India knew Pandit Nehru mot as the Prime Minister but as the benevolent uncle- "Chacha Nehru". "Chacha Nehru" is no longer with us but his memory will live forever not only with the children of this country but also with everyone else. Appropriately enough, the special stamp issued this year commemorates not only Children's Day but also the seventy-fifth birth anniversary of the late Prime Minister. The design of the stamp has been adapted from the commemorative coin of the denomination of one rupee, which is separately to be issued on the 14th November 1964. The stamp bears the inscription 'Chacha Nehru' (uncle Nehru) at the top and 'Bal Din' (Children's Day) at the bottom.
