PROJECT-Teej Celebration- Age no Bar

Teej was celebrated at Kaindia’s Child Kingdom, Baltana, Zirakpur, on 29th July 2017.Forty ladies with children, some young and some old applied Mehndi on their hands. The designs made by them were very intricate and could out beat any professional. Sapna, Mrs Seema Gupta’s daughter applied mehndi on the ladies continuously for two hours nonstop. Songs were sung with Dholki and danced on feet tapping music. PP Rtn Shyam and President Manjit did Kikli-Kalir-Di which was a sight to see, followed by Mrs Neerja Sharma, PP Rtn Bedi, Rtn J C Sharma and Mrs Jagjit Kaur. It was difficult to make out who was six years old and who was sixty plus years old as everyone danced with gusto.

Hot bread pakoras and jalebis with hot tea was served to almost sixty people. Colourful bangles and bindis were distributed to all the ladies. Happiest moment was when one of the ladies had made an apron from an old suit, which she had learnt in her Adult Education class. It was a proud moment as President Manjit had just explained the design verbally and she made it without using machine. President Manjit has handed over her machine so that they can practise this skill and get motivated to learn more things.

Two rugs was handed over to the school so that the ladies and children could sit comfortably to learn. This was sponsored by, Mr Sachin working in Allahabad Bank as his birthday was few days ago.

All this was possible due to kind courtesy Mamta Bhanot and Rtn Preet who sponsored the bangles and Snacks respectively.
