Parents and teachers need to connect to children to understand them in order to drive home lessons or small scientific principles, said Union Minister of State for Tourism K. Chiranjeevi during a Children’s Day celebration organised by Rajagopal Foundation at Indira Gandhi Municipal Corporation Stadium on Wednesday.

The programme commenced at 9.00 a.m.

After formally launching the celebrations by releasing some pigeons and colourful balloons, Mr. Chiranjeevi recounted his experience of learning from his own teachers as a seventh standard student and explained the concept of pollination, fertilisation and germination.

Chiru’s advice

Advising parents to spend more time with their children to understand their needs and read their minds, Mr. Chiranjeevi gave many personal examples.

In the entire jam-packed galleries of the IGMC Stadium, children showcased their talent by presenting various cultural performances and took part in various literary and cultural competitions.

Not many could get a glimpse of the former megastar, but his voice blaring over the public address system regaled them.

A few prize winners had the chance to meet him and take photographs.

Mr. Chiranjeevi profusely thanked Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal for giving him a chance to interact with children and said that this was his first such occasion.

Competitions

The competitions included song, group dance, fancy dress, essay writing, elocution, quiz and drawing contests.

The Union Minister was felicitated with garlands and gifts by the Secondary Education Minister Kolusu Parthasarathy and Vijayawada MLAs Malladi Vishnu and V. Srinivas.

Earlier, the Union Minister came in a procession from the Gannavaram Airport that exposed differences between various groups in the Congress party in the Krishna District.
