Children at DPGA Borivali, were excited as the announcement for the celebration of children’s day came about. While the lower Primary joined the Early years at the celebrations in the school, the others preferred connecting to the universal energy through a visit to the Global Upasana Centre, Pagoda by the Gorai creek.
Learning here took place at a very different level, with the different ways and techniques of guided meditation that complimented the ones that take place in school. Such learning not only aids in strengthening the mind but also expands the intellect. Learning about the origin of the Buddhist culture and its roots in India and its widespread expanse all over world, attracted the students’ attention leaving them spellbound, especially, where the glory of India was concerned.
This was followed by a pot-party in the school and a movie show. The younger students enjoyed participation in the take-away activities like photo frames, greeting cards, hats etc. The moon-walker and the other games added to the fun and joy of these students.
India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, was born on November 14. After his death in 1963, his birthday has been celebrated as Children’s Day in India. Children’s Day is not just a day to let the future generation have its say. It is a day to remember a leader who, in his quiet but determined way, laid the foundation to convert a nascent nation into a world power.
Apart from being known for his skills as a statesman, Nehru was also immensely fond of children. The more popular and famous of Nehru’s pictures show him with children.
In all the photographs Nehru’s joy at being with children is apparent. When he is not sharing pleasantries with them, the expression of intense concentration as he listens to them reveals his commitment and attitude to children. Children to Nehru were little adults in the making. Nehru, to children, is never the Indian political leader and prime minister. He is always Cha-cha Nehru – Nehru Uncle.
