REPUBLIC DAY CELEBERATIONS AND SPORTS EVENT OF ASHOK NAGAR

I would like to present here about an interesting Sports Event on occasion of Republic Day (of course with colorful pictures) at our children’s Park on 25 th and 26th Jan 2009.

We, proud Indians, know the value of Republic day, it was a remarkable day in Indian history as it was on this day the constitution of India came into force and India became a truly sovereign state. On this day, our nation has became a totally Republican unit. The country finally realized the dream of Mahatma Gandhi and the numerous freedom fighters who, fought for and sacrificed their lives for the Independence of their country. So, Republic day is always a special occasion.

This Republic day has become extra special for our street residents, Ashok Nagar. We thought just one day is not enough for saluting our Nation and hence celebrations were held for two days.
FLAG HOISTING BY MASTER. KARAN MOORTHY WITH THE HELP OF MR. RAMANATHAN


To make the kids involve in this function, we conducted a sports events for the kids, so that they will get to know the importance of Republic Day. It would not be worthwhile if I didn’t mention here that this idea was actually proposed by two smart kids, Lakshana and Harshita. They have come up with a plan which made all our eyebrows raised. Then this wonderful idea was implemented with the cooperation of all young mothers. Again, I should also mention that the encouragement from the senior persons who are the caretakers of children’s Park in our locality gave us a strong motivation in implementing this.

The two kids themselves have come up with a plan about the events to be conducted and about the participants list. There were some interesting events such as Frog Jumping, Bunny Hopping, Pebble Picking and Book Balancing, and kids from 3 years to 10 years participated. The day ended with lots of fun and enjoyment.

On 26 th January 2009, the function started off with a flag hoisting ceremony followed by singing National Anthem. A formal address was given by the Good Samaritans of the Association. Flag hoisting was made by a 6 year old child prodigy Karan Moorthy. It was followed by prize distribution to the winners of the previous day events and the grand finale was Karan Moorthy's demo of motor bike racing. Children and their family returned home thrilled and happy.

CHIEF GUEST INTRO BY MR. RAMAN

These are the two smart brainy gals I am showing for you my friends, Lakshana and Harshita. These two gals really rocked that day and got lot of appreciations for their leadership and innovative quality.

ENTHUSIASTIC AND YOUNGEST ORGANISERS OF THE EVENT To my surprise, I was called up on stage to speak about the Sports Event. I was wordless on the dais. I spoke a few words at that time but I took this opportunity to thank everyone for considering my kid’s idea and suggestions who is just 7 years old now. Lakshana, you have made me very proud dear..

I would like to thank all the parents and residents of Ashok Nagar for their co operation and participation in that Event. My very special thanks to Mr.Ramanathan and Mr.Kumaravel (lovingly called as uncles by us), for honoring my kid’s idea, their support and their encouragement to her BY AWARDING HER AND HER FRIEND WITH CREATIVE KIDS AWARD.. And my sincere thanks to Mr. Raman, who agreed and gave his full support in including the Events and prize distribution in between their pre scheduled programme list.
