The primary colours of joy!!

Content contribution by: Arushi, Sakshi, Sonam, Vrinda

In keeping with our zealous tendencies, Delhi decided to have the longest Children’s Day celebrations this year, with back to back events on 14th as well as 15th!! (Yes, no less than a double party for us!!)

The marathon session of revelry started on the 14th at Bal Sehyog:

Party Station I:

First on the agenda was a drawing competition where we distributed drawing sheets and crayons to sixty kids (yes we had a full house!!)…The topics given to them were either ‘Chacha Nehru’ {it was, after all, his birthday :)} or ‘Your future profession’. The kids took to the activity with great enthusiasm and it was an absolute delight to see all of them enjoying themselves, submerged in colourful thoughts….The treasure-trove of talent and creativity that lay hidden in these little angels was quite a revelation :)

After a couple of hours of the fun-filled drawing competition, the first, second and third positions were announced!!

Refreshments were served shortly after which boosted the kids for the next surprise: a movie screening and post-screening photo-session!!! The kids went wild getting clicked in different poses and with their favourite didi or bhaiya!!!

But the celebrations were still not over for the MAD volunteers… We had another day to  follow at Arya Anathalaya on the 15th:

Party Station II:

The MAD team at Arya Anathalaya witnessed the most amazing of all times when they celebrated Children’s Day on Sunday in what we call a typically MAD Delhi style. Smiles, eager eyes were all over the place as the kids waited in anticipation of our grand plans and did we live up to it! It began with the screening of the film Dil Bole Hadippa in the morning for the boys. The boys connected instantly with the cricket, the actors, the comedy and the fun of the film as we soon saw them jumping, laughing, joking and enacting the actors. But the best moment was when the music came on! And the film had plenty to offer in that department. We saw all the barriers of hesitation and shyness break the instant songs started and the rest was a sight to behold!

The girls were no less. As morning shaded into the afternoon and the boys all left smiling, the girls came to paint the town red! We got to see some of the coolest dance moves, the grooviest sing-along and all in all a happy mood as the movie rolled on and the excitement of the kids refused to dwindle! The amazing exuberance of the girls and the endearing shyness of the boys plus a pukka Bollywood film and we lived the most fun day of our lives!

And it wasn’t just the kids who had the time of their lives..Take a look at this:

Testimonial from Vrinda (one of our oldest and most dedicated volunteers!!):

“On 14th November i tried to bake a cake for my students but I guess last minute plans don’t work for me as my cake got overcooked (actually the right word is burnt :( ) I was quite disappointed, but the next day, I took fudge for them instead and they all relished it!!! My happiness knew no bounds….cooking for family and friends is normal (plus they hardly appreciate it!) but this was the first Children’s Day when i cooked for my students :) and i was on the adult side for a change!! We played games and chatted like there was no tomorrow!! I guess, somewhere in the process, I transformed from just their teacher to their teacher and friend!! I am really close to my students and doing anything for them gives me immense happiness!!”

So here’s to the kid in all of you, HAPPY CHILDREN’S DAY! Because, as the kids taught us, it’s never too late ;)

    Kids make everything so special and they made this little event all the more enjoyable..On the 14th of November our volunteers got a chance to spend some more time with the children and they loved it thoroughly..The best thing other than the childrens' reactions was the volunteer attendance, almost everyone tried their best to attend the event..it was only me who had to travel that very day and could come only in the second half and missed quite a lot..All in all it was a superb day with the kids..I would try my best to organize such wonderful events in future too..

    The best thing about spending a lot of time with the kids is that we get to be kids ourselves too in the process. :D
