Republic Day Through The Eyes of a Child

Republic Day Through The Eyes of a Child

Republic Day is an important occasion that fills our hearts with pride and joy. While as adults, we understand the true essence of the day, little children in India have a unique and a heartwarming take on Republic Day, which holds different meanings for each child across the nation.

At MBCN, Republic Day is marked with a day full of exciting activities and events, helping the specially-abled children revisit the country”s glorious past and inspiring them to create new avenues of change for a bright and promising future. Our children are the ones who sow the seeds of a fruitful future, after all. And as citizens of this country, it is our duty to imbibe them with a sense of pride and righteousness that can help them become successful leaders tomorrow.

Recently, we went around the MBCN school and asked several children what Republic Day meant to them, and were amused with the innocent responses. While for some, Republic Day means a holiday and a chance to play all day, for others it’s a day when they are truly excited to watch the hoisting of the flag, followed by distribution of sweets, and other fun-filled activities that rekindle their young, patriotic spirit. For many, Republic Day is a day to celebrate the brave soldiers and the selfless martyrs who gave up their lives for our prosperity and safety. But what tops the list is the colourful and bright parade, which the kids love to watch with wonderstruck eyes.

Here are a couple of drawings made by the MBCN kids, showcasing Republic Day through the eyes of the little ones, and what it means to them.

Republic Day is a pivotal day in India, and as citizens, we take immense pride in celebrating the many facets of being Indian.

Laughter Day: MBCN teachers are a boon to the lives of special children

Laughter Day: MBCN teachers are a boon to the lives of special children

In a world full of despair and uncertainty, it”s always a good idea to take a break, and laugh away our fears and miseries. At MBCN, we believe in spreading smiles and unlimited happiness, and our teachers definitely go the extra mile in instilling positive vibes in the air, full of mirth, fun, and laughter.

Laughing may not be the quickest solution to a problem, and it will not change the situation, but what it does change is the way we look at things, and our overall perspective on life. Our mood defines everything, and how we react to certain situations can make or break us in ways we can”t even imagine.

Spreading love, being kind, and staying happy have a magnetic effect, especially when we deal with people on a day-to-day basis. At MBCN, we strongly believe in the power of happiness, and in dispersing happy vibes wherever we go, and in whatever we do!

We don”t need a particular day to express happiness or laugh out loud. It is a feeling we instil in our special children every single day. Laughter is something that helps us connect to one another, and alleviates any form of stress or tension. People go out of their way when it comes to joining special laughter clubs, as that becomes an escape from the monotony, and things that bring us down. At MBCN, we thrive on this concept 365 days of the year.

The MBCN teachers are the sole reason for the smiling faces of our students that you see in the photographs below. Teaching by the book is alien to their style of teaching. Instead, they interact with children in a friendly way, which makes the learning atmosphere more conducive and comfortable. Telling jokes, sharing fun-filled experiences and positivity are the three keys to a happy, friendly environment at MBCN.

We”ll let the pictures do all the ”˜smiling” for us now!
