A day out with nature

A day out with nature

It was a carnival at Bal Bhavan in Cubbon Park recently. The little ones gathered in large numbers to witness the nature festival, ‘Cubs of Cubbon’ organised by Mahindra Lifespaces.

The first-of-its-kind in the City, this festival offered a bouquet of nature-based workshops for the enthusiastic kids.

The little cubs of Bengaluru engaged themselves in these workshops and made a friendly connection with the nature. The kids registered for free and had eco-experiences in art, nature and beauty of creating.

It introduced children to gardening, magic shows, film-screenings, jam sessions and lot more creative activities.

Commenting on the event Smeeta Neogi, VP Marketing, Mahindra Lifespaces says, “We want to make a connection with the people of Bengaluru. As Bengaluru is an eco-city, we wanted to do something eco-friendly. So, we planned to conduct nature-based workshops for the kids.”

Nature walk, heritage walk, gardening, painting, pottery, storytelling, dancing, music and so many well-planned workshops were organised in the event that created a sense of appreciation for the Mother Nature among the kids.

The usually tech-savvy kids took a break from their gadgets and energetically took part in these workshops.

Samrat, a fifth-grade student of VIBGYOR High says, “This festival is great and interesting. There are so many fact boards put up about nature. There are so many activities that are great fun.” 

Another excited kid, Jathin from Frank Anthony School says, “I got tattooed.  I took part in pottery and mask making too. I danced and played the ‘Jungle Book’ game. This event is very interesting and fun as well.” The usually calm Cubbon Park was on Sunday crowded, and it was more like a family picnic in a carnival.

The kids were accompanied by their parents and grandparents, who watched them dance and sing in these workshops.

“It had to be a little more organised. But otherwise this event is great. The thought behind this festival is very unique,” says, Deepali Pawar, a homemaker.

“My kids are having great fun. This is any day better than them sitting in front of the television. My kids did clay modeling for the first time and I feel nice. These kinds of events should happen quite often as kids get a different kind of exposure and they learn to socialise,” says Malakatoi, a freelancer.

This event, being the first-of-its-kind in Bengaluru, did leave a mark on the kiddiewinks who are looking forward to more such events in the city.
