VELLORE: Events to mark and celebrate Children’s Day organised for in-patient children of Christian Medical College Hospital (CMCH)was organized by the department of pediatrics,  on Saturday, with the theme ‘Help Children Enjoy Childhood’.

The tiny-tot in-patients in CMCH ward interacted with each other and enjoyed the skits enacted by students of the School of Nursing, CMCH.

CMC director Dr Sunil Chandy in his address to the children and their parents pointed out that children were a big source of inspiration. He called for parents to help children enjoy their childhood. 

“We should learn innocence, courage and the adventurous attitude of children in our life,” he pointed out. The first Prime Minister Jawarharlal Nehru had great fascination for kids and a rose, once gifted to him by a child became a permanent fixture on his coat when he  would step out to meet the  public. He wanted his birthday to be celebrated as Children’s day, Sunil added.  Chandy gave away prizes to children of the ward who had topped in various competitions on the occasion.

Some of the children, despite their illness and the IV lines and masks came out dressed as Gandhi, Nehru, ‘Bharat Mata’ and spoke about the day and how they enjoyed being with others. They also planted rose plants in remembrance of the day.

Students of the Thulir Science School in Katpadi also celebrated Children’s day with cultural shows on the occasion.
