Roshan Rahe Sabki Diwali – A Community Service & Go Green Project
Calcutta Round Table 4 executed one of its flagship community service called “Sabki Diwali” where it distributed firecrackers and goodies like biscuits, chocolates and chips to 250 children of a lesser privileged section in Kankurgachi , Kolkata.
In addition to this as a Go Green Initiative this year Calcutta Round Table 4 also distributed 250 LED bulbs to ensure their houses are lit this Diwali and called it “ Roshan Rahe Sabki Diwali”
We ensured the handover of all the products were done by our twinklers so they understand the joy of giving.
As part of the National Go Green initiative, 13 of our twinklers, armed with soil and seeds, got down to business and made some seedballs for a fun and evening. There was mud, there were seeds and there was tons of laughter and fun everywhere. The kids did a phenomenal job of making the seedballs – assisted by the tablers and circlers. This event was followed by games for twinklers and fellowship for the parents.
TABLERS CIRCLERS OF RRT169 & RLC 90 MADE THE SEED BALLS WITH MUD WATER AND SEEDS WHILE THE TABLERS ENJOYED CHOCOLATES. THE TWINKLERS ALL LINED IN A ROW AND THREW THE SEED BALLS IN THE BARREN LAND. THE CHILDREN WERE SO EXCITED THAT THEY TOOK THE REMAINING MUD AND SEEDS AND PUT THEM IN THE BARREN LAND AS THEY LIKED.
IT WAS FUN WATCHING THE CHILDREN ENJOY DOING THEIR BIT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT IN A FUN WAY.
