For you and me, republic day is all about going to schools, hoisting the Indian flag and singing the National Anthem! For some, it is about staying at home, enjoying the holiday and watching the Parade. But, when it comes to celebrating the Republic day with a difference, C.L.A.P wins the hearts of all. This Republic Day, C.L.A.P (Creative Learning Arts and Performance) celebrated the Indian Republic day in a creative way, spreading joy and happiness with children suffering from Down Syndrome.
This 26th January C.L.A.P celebrates India’s Republic Day with Down Syndrome Children, teaching them how to make music using percussion instruments while singing our National Anthem and reciting different poetries truly engulfing the sense of freedom. ‘POETRY’thon is an initiative by Mishti (the founder of C.L.A.P), who feels the need to spread the joy and bring together the true spirit of unity amongst these young children.
C.L.A.P is India’s first unique and multi-dimensional holistic Self-Development Centre for Children, Women and Parents. It uses the power of creative arts to foster self-expression, learning, healing, growth and development through board games, yoga, dance, creative arts, theatre, story-telling and counselling.
Ms. Mishti Varma, loves children and this Republic Day she wanted to celebrate it with a purpose. She celebrated it with Down Syndrome children with an aim to help and teach them by spreading love and joy amongst all.
This would help the children to learn new music, understand themselves and free themselves from all their troubles. Mishti is in the opinion that, Music is the best and easiest way of one to express himself.
