Delhi Customs organised Painting/Drawing Competition on 10.06.2022 for children on the theme ‘Mere Sapno Ka Bharat’ at Darya Khan Park, East Kidwai Nagar and Govt Senior Secondary School, Rajokri as part of the Iconic Week celebrations under Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
Around 300 children participated enthusiastically in the competition, which was conducted for 2 age categories - 5-10 years & 11-16 years.
The theme is meant to connect the children with development of their Nation and to make them active contributors towards nation-building. The purpose is also to invoke a proud connect with rich cultural history and ideals of freedom struggle in this 75th year of independence so that children and citizens can value the freedom & privileges that we enjoy as citizens of India.
This also tries to encourage children to think innovatively and come up with solutions for the problems they see around them.
Children made very creative and colourful paintings/drawings on the theme ‘Mere Sapno Ka Bharat’. The paintings exhibited that they seek and desire a clean, environmentally prosperous, technologically advanced, fair & just and an egalitarian country which leads the world towards future. All children were provided with drawing materials and refreshments.
Prize winners were awarded certificates, trophies and gifts. The event was very well received by the children and the residents of the area. Chief Commissioner Shri Surjit Bhujabal and Principal Commissioner Smt. Simmi Jain graced the occasion, interacted with children and gave away the prizes.
