“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” – Mark Twain
Going by the sanctity of this quote, Nirmaan – the Social Club of IMNU hosted the ‘Joy of Giving Week’ starting 2nd October, 2018.
The first day was observed as the Foundation Day where they inaugurated the new avatar of the social club of IMNU which was formerly called Saral. They celebrated the day by playing games like Musical Chairs with the kids. Club Fiesta, along with the kids, played to the tune of Garba. To add to the kids’ delight, the members of Nirmaan also a celebratory cake.
The second day was devoted to Arts & Crafts. The kids along with their Nirmaan supervisors turned on their creative side and dipped their hands in paints to create wonders.
Fun & frolic continued on the third day with Chillar Party.
The fourth day was dedicated to fun outdoor games like pitthu, badminton and kho-kho. These kept the kids active and agile.
Alumni Day, the fifth day, gave the kids a chance to interact with the former members of the social club. All the alumni as well as the faculty got a chance to stop by the Nirmaan stall. The hand-made items crafted by the kids on the second day sold like hot cakes and garnered a lot of appreciation. They also danced in the cultural event of the Alumni Day.
On the sixth day, the students of Nirmaan took the kids out on a day trip to Kankaria Lake where they took a ride around the lake on the ‘Toy Train’. The fun quadrupled when the kids went to the Kankaria zoo.
The week instilled in all a renewed sense of belongingness with each other.
