I love my India: Embracing Children's love towards their motherland
The feeling of love and devotion towards one’s country develops from a very young age. India is a diverse country and attracts millions for its alluring history, marvelous structure, vibrant culture and happy people. The beauty of India lies in the shared values, rich heritage, and unity that binds the nation together.
The love for the nation unites children and inculcates a sense of identity. They can experience a lot of things related to this, like the power of love and unity and the beauty of diversity.
In our last art session, we conducted the art session on the topic ‘I love my India’, where children shared their knowledge about India’s history, vibrant culture, cuisine and recent advancements in the country.
Children shared their feelings of love and respect towards their nation. They shared their views of what they love about India. One student shared his love for the national flag and how he sees all the colors of nature in the Indian flag. Another student shared her interest in Indian cuisine, Indian street food and not to forget her love for the national sweet- Jalebi. These instances show how deeply children are attached to their motherland. This way they take an interest in learning about history while moving ahead into the future. The children also shared their interest in their knowledge of national facts.
Through their paintings, they showcased their knowledge about the national flag, national tree, national bird.
India has always attracted millions through its beautiful landscapes, magnificent history and diverse culture. Children see India as a place that accepts everyone with open arms. A place that showcases diversity as its strength and has a sense of belonging among its members. Children also learn to grow together in a harmonious environment together. Their love for India unites them and inculcates a sense of belongingness and we-feeling among them. This way children also learn to respect each other and other ways of life.
