An attempt to spread smiles

Jaana Hai, Nachiketa Tapovan, Chalo Milkar Chale!

On Monday, 15th October, students of seventh standard having their second/third language as Hindi and Xth grade students went to Nachiketa Tapovan, an orphanage in Jubilee Hills. This activity was a part of Hindi Diwas celebration, as says the VIIth grade Hindi lesson Jab Jaago Tabhi Sawera. Students collected funds, bought necessary stationary and goods that filled 2 big boxes!

At the orphanage, we performed various activities such as dance, songs and skits to entertain the kids of Nachiketa Tapovan. We performed a moral skit that discouraged child labour by explaining why child labour was a huge ban throughout India, and encouraged children to study. Later, we explained why education is important and how it is useful for their future opportunities in a better way. Then all of us presented a wonderful song, Padna Likhna Sikho, Oh Mehnat Karney Walo, which brought the audience to ecstasy with all ears.  Then, Aaheli, grade VII recited a series of poems about the concerned topic accompanied with actions. Then last but not least, six of the 10th graders performed a Rajasthani Dance, which turned out to be a huge hit of the show with a large round of applause. At the end of this activity, we taught the students at Nachiketa Tapovan a couple of school assembly songs, Hum Honge Kamyab and Aasman Ko Ek Din. Other activities included jokes, charades and Nachiketa students also joined us, sang and recited poems.  

Students got a chance to interact and mingle well with the students at Nachiketa Tapovan and enjoyed every minute. Rama Sharma Ma’am, senior school Hindi teacher, Mythili Ma’am, Student Advisor and Maheshwar Sir, Music teacher accompanied us over the exciting trip to the orphanage. Overall, it was a wonderful learning experience.
