On Friendship day “The Hindu” News Paper conducted painting competition to HEAL Children. The topics were India in My Dreams and a Festival of their liking. The children did so well and there is a very big and wonderful coverage in the paper with the caption ‘THEIR CREATIVTY ASTONISHES ONE AND ALL’ – It was riot of colour at the HEAL Home for Orphans on Friendship Day.
They also wrote…If it is by choice that one makes friends world over, at places like HEAL Home for Orphans, friends are made to console each other and matter more as they are the only ones to say their own. At ‘HEAL’ the orphanage on Chetana campus it is ‘Friendship Day’ everyday.
Their basis of existence and relationship with all around them is based on ‘friendship’ as they do not know from where they belong to or even if they know they do not have anyone to relate to.
Imagination of those Orphan children is on par with any of the creative skills of an urban child of an elite school and surprisingly in all the three categories the younger lot have outshined their counterparts either in portrayal of topic given to them through imaginative sketching and filling apt colours’.
When the winners were rewarded with valuable prizes and all the participants received the special gifts the whole village was in gay mood.
Mrs Marudwathi supplied the content of the recent ‘Friendship Day’.
