..And the Big Picture Emerges!

We wound up finally on Sunday morning. After the finishing touches were put, we all had breakfast together out under the big blue sky and the idlis and dosas tasted especially delicious!

Afterwards we met up indoors and celebrated the conclusion of a splendid week together with a huge round of applause for ourselves and for each other. The sense of pride the children felt in their work was palpable. They will feel good every time they look at their wall. That I guess is the power of creativity.

The mural tells you, among other things, that the big picture that emerges is made up of all the tiny bits that we all put together.

Here's a round of applause for everyone who did their bit, tiny and otherwise - Jan, Trina, Sandhya Auntie, George, Namrata (that would be me), Farah, Amrita, Manjula, Suneetha, Sneha, Pushpa, Pulla Reddy Uncle, Suresh, Vimla Auntie, Karen and of course the SUPER DUPER KIDS AT AARTI HOME!
