The 3 year old children were so excited to see us ‘special visitors’, but very curious of our displays.
It was a great pleasure to talk about our vedic culture to such young souls. They were very receptive
with full of questions and answers.
We had an interactive power point presentation, where we discussed various aspects of our culture as well
as giving them hands on experience using traditional instruments as the mrdanga and kartals.
They appeared to also really enjoy learning word for word the Vedic Maha and then singing it all together using the instruments.
Then it was time for yoga. They were able to listen and follow the instructions of the various fun yoga postures, especially
designed for these young people. Relaxational music was played at the end of the yoga session, which proved effective when we saw everyone totally relaxed and falling asleep.
Finally they got a chance to try out the beautiful traditional clothes we had brought for them, which were colourfully displayed around the room. Most of them got dressed into the clothing and wore bangles and other jewellery. While others were keen on getting the Indian facial art done like us.
The teachers were equally as excited to get dressed with our help, while one teacher took on the challenge of draping the sari herself. The children loved seeing their teachers getting dressed up.
