Sanjivini Welfare Association celebrated Children's Day by organising a cultural event exclusively for children at the Sanjivini Residential complex, Adyar, on November 14.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Narasimhavarman participated in the celebrations. Quoting Thirukkural, he told to children about their duties and responsibilities. He said: “Our nation has come a long way and is emerging as a super power, as visualised by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Therefore, you must be ready to meet challenges of the future as citizens of India.”
Mr. Narasimhavarman had a word of advice for the parents too. He asked them to keep an eye on strangers and to keep the police informed about any suspicious people visiting their locality.
With child kidnapping cases on the rise, he wanted parents to be vigilant. He requested the children to avoid talking to strangers.
Kamala Mahadevan, past District Governor, Lions Club International, explained the meaning of Sanjivini and urged the children to learn more and more. Every child has a genius in him or her, she pointed out.
Prizes and certificates were distributed to all the winners and participants in the ‘Born To Win' competitions.
