Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru whom we Indians also lovingly address as Chacha Nehru was a favorite amongst children as not only did he love them but also did things during his term as the prime minister that kept him locked in the memories of Indians as the messiah of children. It is his birthday on November 14 that we in India observe as Children’s Day.
Chacha Nehru always said that children should be taught to love, care and share and in keeping with this very thought of the late Prime Minister, Story organized a unique initiative ‘Share a Story’. Under this unique program one can donate books at the Story book store which will be later given to the less privileged children of the society. Prasenjit Chatterjee, theatre personality Jayant Kriplani, Sidharth Pansari and Master Arya Dasgupta were present at the occasion to encourage people to participate in this initiative as well as declare it open.
The weeklong initiative will conclude on 14th of November. Speaking at the occasion Prasenjit Chatterjee said “Events of this kind will help in bringing joy and happiness to the lesser fortunate children of our society. With the help of this effort many children will be exposed to proper reading materials and their knowledge will increase considerably. My recently released film Force is also about special children and coming to this event which is all about the less fortunate kids gives me immense satisfaction”. The actor along with Arya and Jayant Kriplani donated books from their collection for this unique initiative.
The people who will be contributing their books in this initiative will get a certificate from Story. The person will also get 20 percent discount on books and five percent discount on toys and stationery. They also get a chance to participate in a lucky draw, winning which will give them a sum of Rs. 1500 in the form of vouchers.
Sholoana Bangaliana congratulates Story on this wonderful initiative and urges its patrons to help in spreading love and education on the upcoming Children’s Day by donating books for the less fortunate kids.
