Mangalore: Children have Gala Time Grabbing Goodies at Govt School
Daijiworld Media Network – Mangalore
Mangalore, Sep 3: Small packages with snacks, vegetables and many other day-to-day items spread across an open ground, with lucky chits hidden inside the packages. And children waiting curiously to grab the goodies.
The scene was witnessed at the city’s Bokkapatna Government High Primary School premises on Sunday September 2. The occasion was 'Vastusoore' programme, organized for children by Dharmabhumi Pratishtaana, Bokkapatna.
Prior to the event, a stage programme was held in which mayor Gulzar Banu along with several others took part.
The centre of attention were the eager children, who were curiously waiting to grab the little packages. The stage programme had to be winded up soon as the children started moving ahead to grab the items even as the programme was set to start.
As soon as the organizers flagged off the event, the children plundered over the packages and emptied the ground in no time. They eagerly opened the packages to find prizes like iron box, water storage drum, all arranged neatly on the stage.
The lucky winners took home the prizes, but those who did not get any goody were not disappointed either, as they were allowed to keep the packages for themselves.
