I drew a butterfly!!!!!

The last Sunday I was in a school where competition was taking place for children. The competition was on pencil drawing, water colour, story writing and essay writing. The children were divided according to their age. I reached the spot with a group of children who were eligible for participation. The competition started at 9 am sharp. Before there was registration and other formalities so we reached there well in advance. Unfortunately some of the organizers had given me a responsibility, staying on the door and strictly prohibit parents to enter the hall. According to them small children (from 5 years onwards) also participate so parent’s presence will divert their attention, and time allotted for them only 30 minutes and they wanted to finish the competition within the stipulated time. It was disheartening to me to do the job but I had to obey. One young mother requested me to go inside and see her daughter; her daughter was hardly getting five years, to find out what she does inside the hall. I told her nothing to worry, let her do whatever she knows. Then the mother started to talking, she was not aware about the topic of competition, where I told the topic was given one week in advance then how you missed it. She said many reasons for missing the topic. Thirty minutes runs out fast the little angel came out with a broad smile on her face, she looks very cute. She came near and told her mother, ‘the topic was on ‘nilavilakku’ (lightening lamp) but I made a butterfly’. Her mother hugged her and told it’s alright dear, no problem, you did it that is all. It was really funny and touching on watching them and hearing their conversation. How did you spend your Sunday? Any fun related incidents with children to share?

@else34 We may try when there is a compulsion My elder son draw well. Younger one always depend him for drawing works. Once I stopped elder one and told let the younger one try himself. He cried, screamed and talked words like no one to help him but I just didn't mind. Finally he sat by his own and made a beautiful drawing.
