Play area set up to attract kids to Gandhi Museum in Tamil Nadu's Madurai
Assistant Commissioner of Police, Lily Grace, who inaugurated the play area, said that knowing the history plays a significant role in choosing the future leaders
In a bid to attract children to visit Gandhi Museum, a play area has been jointly set up by the social service organisations, Madurai City Ladies Circle 60 and Madurai City Round Table 99.
According to the Chairperson of Madurai City Ladies Circle 60, Deepthitha Chetan, the Rajaji Park near the museum is always crowded. However, the museum sees a footfall of less than 200 persons a day. "In an attempt to attract children to the museum to know the history and the significance of Mahatma Gandhi in the freedom struggle, we have set up the play area here. Of the Rs 45,000 worth equipment purchased, Rs 20,000 was raised by the kids in the organisation by selling plum cakes during Christmas. The rest was contributed by the organisation," she said, adding that the equipment would be increased in forthcoming days.
Assistant Commissioner of Police, Lily Grace, who inaugurated the play area, said that knowing the history plays a significant role in choosing the future leaders. Addressing the youngsters gathered, she urged them to exercise their franchise judicially in the upcoming polls.
