National Children's Day | Bhaumasthami Vrat





Innocent eyes, perplexing repetitive common questions, parrot speech, cartoon revelry, vicious and demonic behaviors, and their unconscious activities, children's magical eyes, and the normal dreams within them, perhaps nature has made us humans to be like this. I think so.

Every year on Bhadra 29th, Nepal celebrates Children's Day for these children and their safety and protection. Nepal has been celebrating National Children's Day on Bhadra 29th every year on the occasion of the day Nepal ratified the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child on September 14, 1990, and expressed its international commitment to child development, protection of child rights, and child participation.

The historic context of Rashtriya Bal Diwas in Nepal
National Children's Day has been celebrated in Nepal since Bhadra 4, 2021 BS. The then queen Ratna Rajyalakshmidevi Shah, during her visit to India, came to know that Children's Day was celebrated on Mahatma Gandhi's birthday and many social activities were held on that day.

Bhadra 4 was the birthday of Ratna Rajyalakshmidevi Shah. Thus, Nepal celebrated 42 Children's Day on Bhadra 4, and finally, Nepal was then trying to follow the path of the republic since 2063 BS, established Bhadra 29 as Children's Day. Welcome to Children's Day on Bhadra 29 of this year.


The memories of childhood are fresh with all of us, many of us even feel like we are getting old very quickly because childhood is so sweet that the sweetness that comes to our mind when we remember our childhood is much sweeter than the taste of 1000 chocolate. We have developed our learning ability in childhood, the stumbling of the foot and the wound of the foot may have taught us the force of gravity. After the first word in the universe, mother, father, or papa, we may still be learning the names of many things and things. Those lessons of childhood learning continue to give us an impact and a basis throughout our lives. The French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau said that human beings are born free but gradually they are bound by the rope of responsibility. In this sense, no one in the world is more independent than a child, it is necessary to instill feelings of love, affection, and harmony in that innocent and free child.

Parents need to think about their relationship with their children as they celebrate a new Children's Day like last year. Life is getting very busy but have they been able to give enough time and love to their children?

This year, in the post COVID scenario, the context of living confined inside homes. Now the importance of parenting, growing, and living is different in contrast to previous years. This year's Rashtriya Bal Diwas also advocates for the transformed parenting and growing scenarios and the protection of a child's interest under that changed scenario. Whether or not our children are heading in the right direction, if not, we need to consider how we should change our behavior. Here neither Shravan Kumar came from the soil nor the terrorists fell from the sky, our children are the future of every good and bad persona, think well, speak well and look good, good luck to all.

Bhaumasthami Vrat


Today is Asthami tithi and this holy Asthami is known as Bhaumasthami. It is also customary to fast Bhoomashtami on this day. Followers of Sanatan Dharma can celebrate and remember every festival in their way. The practice of fasting for spiritual fruits on this day is unique in itself.

In Bhaumashtami fast, especially worship of Mars and planetary peace is also done. There are many fruits of worshiping Shakti on the eighth day. There is a tradition of worshiping and adoring Gorakhkali Bhagwati in Bhaumashtami, especially in the temple of Bhagwati Gorakhkali in Gorkha.

As in other vrata, it is customary to get up in the morning to take a bath, sing hymns, worship and study the holy books and meditate. Good luck to everyone on this year's Bhoomshtami.
