REPUBLIC DAY CELEBRATIONS

HAPPY REPUBLIC DAY TO ALL.

NANDAVANAM.....

This is a children’s club run by me .


As part of our events, Republic day was celebrated by hoisting the National Flag in the nearby grounds and was filled with Desabhakthi. The children were encouraged to be creative and positive in their activities. The program also provided the opportunity for parents and children to visit and learn about NANDAVANAM. The photos are below.


WHAT IS NANDAVANAM?


NANDAVANAM in Tamil, is the garden where different flowers blossom for the daily pooja of The Almighty. This NANDAVANAM unites all children in serving The Almighty and mankind. NANDAVANAM is a forum for children to discover the divinity within them. NANDAVANAM enables children to learn moral values and culture in an enjoyable manner and make good friends. The forum also develops a sense of service to mankind, and teaches our heritage. The children brought up in this way will learn good moral values and principles and will realize the spark within themselves and grow with positive thoughts and spirituality.


ACTIVITIES:-


Activities include social, spiritual, intellectual and physical development of the children.

For ex:- Stories, bhajans, slokas, quiz, games & sports, competitions etc.


SPECIAL EVENTS & COMMUNITY SERVICE:


Celebrates various festivals and teaches the meaning behind the festivals.


a) Service to the needy is the most important of all.


b) extending voluntarily service in Senior Citizen's Homes, orphanages, helpage homes, etc.,


c) Actively participating in National festivals and sowing the seed of patriotism in children.


The children put kolam yesterday night with great enthusiasm.



Stray dogs doesn't know the hard work of the children.

Children pin our National Flag to each other with fun and love.

  15. Shanthi Maami - my respect and admiration for you has tripled right now. Its wonderful to see this Nandavanam of fresh bright faces and the joy in their eyes! Did they put up a bharatha matha drama and all? Upload the videos if you have them. The children's kolam looks wonderful. Wish the stray dogs slept all night that night and did not mess it up!

    I'm amazed at how wonderfully you juggle all your activities in 24 hrs! kudos to you!
