Edition2: Taare Zameen Par

On 13th Nov, which was the eve of children’s day, Pune Riverside Round Table 105 an organization of young people, celebrated taaren zameen par. This was a painting competition for differently abled children at Phoenix school in 16th Lane Prabhat road, pune next to symbiosis school. There were around 120 children across different age groups. Some children could draw and paint. Some children were given pre-drawn images based on difficulty levels only for painting.
Children were given snacks sponsored by Round Table, and then they were taken to gathering hall. The anticipation was great and the smiles and excitement was contagious. The members of Round Table attended this event in great numbers. It was a worthy experience for all. In fact such events can make these children feel a part of society and raise their self esteem of doing something which is valued. The Phoenix school is doing a great work to educate and make them self reliant. Principal Swati madam and her staff deserve a special mention for doing this activity. The work done by her team on this date was stupendous. The organization, attention to details was great.
The judges Mrs Pallavi Gothkhindikar and Mrs Ashwini, guided the children. They were so impressed by potential of children that they have decided to go there weekly to help children improve their skill as a social initiative.
The hour was given to children and the sight of them involved creatively was spectacle. Teachers and Round Tablers were helping them as well.
Then it was the judgment time. There were four categories and it was difficult for judges to rank them as many had put in good work. But first and second ranks were declared though no one can argue that entire 120 children were winners.
Mr Ranjit Shirole, a yound dynamic politician from Pune, graced the occasion and distributed the prizes. The joy on faces to receive a prizes beyond citiblog reporter’s vocabulary. Each participant was given a certificate.
Really a meaningful afternoon and a great children’s day celebration
