On the 70th Independence Day, children from the slum near Sushant Lok in Gurgaon celebrated the day in a great manner to prove a point.
“We celebrated the programme so that children get confidence in themselves. We want to show that even if they are from economically backward background, they are as capable as others,” said Laxmi, a teacher, who is associated with the children from last four years.
“I prepared a lot for my drama. I was nervous but excited too,” said the 10-year-old Sunny.
“Though I was bit hesitant earlier to take part in group dance as it is not considered a good thing amongst my community, I then decided to go for it. My teacher told me its not a bad thing,” said Pooja.
