The turnout today seemed larger than usual, but the day was still quite sober. I was welcomed with the usual hugs, and requests for piggyback rides
The theatre group from Christ college arrived to entertain the kids. The skit which the troupe put up allowed for a lot of interaction and flexible roles. Many times, the kids would go up on the stage area and contribute to the skit, a clear indication of their excitement and enjoyment. The interaction between the actors and the kids held their attention till the end. They loved the troupe so much that when it was time to say goodbye, they were not allowed to leave (or the process was made considerably more difficult).
