Second Time at Samiksha

This second visit to Samiksha at Kidwai Kids, reinforced my feelings of last time.

Some of the children recognized me and welcomed me as Ranganna aunty- Story sister.

I loved the intensity with which they approached the art project- the ear bud painting had not seen so much creativity - beautifully done trees, houses and lotuses and even a peacock!

With a bit of tree-via thrown in, we sang the Tree song from Karadi. I followed it up with an animated narration of When Ali became Bajrangbali story from Tulika.

This was the first time my mother was coming along for my story session. The experience was uplifting for both of us.

Amazing kids and great initiative by Samiksha to bring education to the children since they cannot possibly go to a regular school for a while. This way they will be bright and ready when it is time for them to go back to the mainstream

However what is heart wrenching is that not all will get to go back. I was a bit saddened by the deterioration in health that I saw in one of the older girls. Certainly hope she gets better soon.
