Children's Day Celebration at V M School by OYA Foundation...

Children’s Day Celebration With Very Unique Kids
This time our Organization got a wonderful chance to celebrate children’s day with very special kids, they were the kids from Victoria Memorial School who were visually impaired. We celebrated this beautiful day on Saturday, 19th November. The occasion started with having an introductory but a fun loving session, we gathered information about themselves & shared with them about our organization & the most important thing “the purpose of meeting today”. The response of the kids after knowing the reason was overwhelming, there was an excitement & thrill in their voice & of course why not, it will be, everyone likes to have fun & that to from boring studies.
We started with playing few word games, and then we made them hear to the song of “Yeh Tara” from the movie "Swadesh” and title track of movie - "Taare Zameen Par". Our motive behind making them hear to that song was to make them realize that they are still very special like the stars in the sky. As stars though surrounded by the darkness of the sky still continue to shine & spread their radiance to others, the same way they are also a ray of hope to the other normal kids around. They place an example to others that inspite of not having vision they still have not lost the zeal to live their life. This sets them unique from other kids.
The celebration further continued by kids singing songs for us, they have a great passion for singing; music is like a friend to them. The kids had such a soothing voice; it seemed as if you just go on listening to them for hours & hours. Along with singing few kids were playing harmonium too. They are Super Rockstars. After a wonderful & melodious session of singing, we gave them healthy snacks which kids really enjoyed & the celebration ended by giving them gift as a token of love that we received from these special kids.

So to sum up this incredible celebration, it was an overwhelming & remarkable experience.
