It is rightly said that children are the future of tomorrow. And for a better future, we need to count on their proper growth and development. The journey starts at home where kids absorb & learn ethics, and behavior along with positive social interaction. Quality learning, education and exposure to extracurricular activities like art, craft, music, dance, theatre, etc contribute to their upbringing as well!
And many festivals are held to ensure that kids grow up with such fun & worthy extracurricular activities.
