At the serene setting of Ashima Open Homes (Brookefield, Bangalore), Independence Day was a day to remember. It was one such day when there were no rules, no restrictions but just plain fun and action.
Early afternoon all the children got together at the basement to clear the mess and clean up the place. It was tiring but at the end of it we had a beautiful basement for ourselves.
Soon, it was time to reap the benefits of all the work the kids had put in. They were allowed to paint the basement walls in whatever way they liked. There were colours splashing and brushes sweeping the walls. It was indeed a colourful sight! (Let’s just forget about all the saboon, water and effort the moms had to put in to wash the clothes later.)
The grand finale of the event was the launch of Pratham Books’ title ‘Little Painters’! A book that’s all about children who get their hands dirty but, in turn give wings to their artistic side. The kids were keen to know all about the adventures of the little painters in the story. They settled down for a fun-filled story telling session by Manju Dwivedi. We ended the session with a lot of gifts from Pratham Books! More stories…a lot more fun!
