Hari's picnic

Yesterday he went to Picnic at Children's park Ernakulam with his friends. After the announcement of picnic day he was very happy and asked me what the term picnic means. He enjoyed the trip to the park and told me about the events there. He was very curious about the dancing fountain there. They travelled in the train in the park. He also mentioned about the statues of Mayavi, Kuttoosan and Dakini.
Children like to travel and visit new places. His school arranges field trips and visits to important places. Last week they visited Fire station and told me about the fire engine and its operation. He is very sensitive and also very keen about his surroundings.

Children at various parks in Ernakulam
The full name of Children's park is Indira Priyadarshini Park. The park is run by District Council for Child Welfare(DCCW). District Collector is the Chairman of DCCW. It is a renewable energy park in Kerala. The park has equipments working on Solar, Wind, thermal, micro hydel, bio mass and bio gas. This will create awareness among children about the non con conventional energy sources. The park has a wonderful dancing fountain and a pond with pedal boat facility. A park is not at all a place to play its also a place of relaxation, a place for communication thus a place for the uplift of the community. In foreign countries there are parks and play areas for people crossed 60! Its wonderful!!!This help them to exercise, have more laugh and strengthen their bonds...interesting story about the adult park...
