Tagore Painting Competition


There are few moments that bring as much joy as one spent with children. They truly are our greatest treasures and are always generous in sharing their love. The first ever Glimpses of India Tagore painting competition in Turkey was held on 10 April in 4 cities - Ankara, Istanbul, Bursa and Antalya - after long preparations with the Ministry of Education and local schools. The response was enthusiastic and overwhelming. 1463 students from 106 schools participated in the competition and some of them visited the Embassy. A dondurma (ice cream) man prepared treats for all. We are now preparing for the prize ceremony, which will include a Bollywood show for participating children. Although I believe every child is a winner, there will be four lucky winners of the grand prize, which will be tickets to India. Everyone is very excited!
