Diwali Mela for Children in Pimpri
Radiant faces, cheerful hearts and loads of laughter; that was what marked the occasion of the Diwali Mela! Held in Pimpri on Sunday, 28th October, especially for children, the event was a remarkable one!
Neha Dharmani set the tone with an encouraging ‘Dada Shyam’! A choral by children was energetic and enthusiastic! Coupled with melodious kirtans by none other than Shashank Ombhase, the hall was thoroughly charged in spirituality! Revered Dada J.P. Vaswani’s Talk was played with an interactive session with fun prizes. An aarti, mantra chants and a sumptuous meal added delight to their day! But the highlight of the event was yet to come! Children and even their parents were given clothes, shoes, games and surprise gifts! Their happiness was contagious and enthusiasm unbounding!
On the occasion, Sister Krishna Kumari, Working Chairperson of the Sadhu Vaswani Mission, said, “Remember Dada at least for 2 minutes daily, greet him with a Dada Shyam and ask all that you want of him! She also urged the children to stay meatless on 25th November. In unison, going beyond, the children and their parents present pledged to go meatless for the entire month of November!
The event concluded with the children given an opportunity to choose from an additional range of gifts.
