Sharad Parikrama 2017: A festive tour for the underprivileged
Sharad Parikrama 2017:
A festive tour for the underprivileged
As a part of our social responsibility to the city of Kolkata , for the last fifteen years we, at Times Foundation, have been conducting ‘Sharad Parikrama’, a two days round-the-city activity during Durga Puja wherein we take underprivileged children on a day-time tour of some major Puja pandals of the city.
The objective of conducting this tour has been to put smiles on the faces of those with fewer advantages and also to make them more aware of the culture of their birthplace so that they are made socially comfortable.
Sharad Parikrama 2017 was held on the two commencing days of Durga Puja-
Day 1: Shasti (26th September, 2017) and
Day 2: Saptami (27th September, 2017).
A total of 4 buses formed the convoy on each day for the transportation of about 500 children. They were taken to various puja pandals throughout the day. Refreshments and goodie bags were provided to everyone.
