Remember ME - You Me and Dementia

Saturday, February 9, 2008


Indian Finance Minister Shri P. Chidambaram has said that we should care young talents who have lost their childhood as many children move into adulthood bypassing the joy of childhood because of harsh realities of life. All efforts should be made to identify and bring forth the creativity of the socially challenged children.

Stating this Shri Chidambaram said that the requirement for their food, clothing and even shelter are usually met but what is most important is to encourage the creative and natural talents which these children possess but are not expressed as they do not get a proper platform for expression. Shri Chidambaram said that children possess original and natural talents which should be encouraged particularly in the field of Songs, Music, Dances and other similar arts.

The Finance Minister appreciated the original idea and initiative by two professionals Alpana & Neeraj who with the assistance and enrollment of other professionals organized a show called “Small Wonders” to bring forth the creativity and talents of these special children at a function here last evening at the prestigious Balyogi Auditorium of the Parliament. Appreciating the role of different voluntary institutions working for the welfare and development of socially challenged children (Orphans) like Ashadeep, Shishu Sangh Open Griha/St. Michel’s Hostel, Bhatia School and Bal Bhawan, the Finance Minister said that similar efforts should be made to empower the children by exploring & then developing their potential.

The programme, which was based on the theme of Basant Panchmi, will be telecast on Lak Sabha TV Channel from 4 to 5 p.m. on Sunday i.e. 10th February, 08.


Forget yourself for others, and others will never forget you.
