The peepal tree is extremely popular for its heart shaped leaves that have long narrowing tips. According to the Skanda purana, a person who does not have children should consider the peepal tree as his own child. It says that the family will prosper and have a good name, till the peepal tree survives.
On a different, yet connected note, did you know that our emotional security is directly proportional to our childhood experiences, especially with our parents?
Keeping this in mind, Grooming Babies devised Under the Peepal Tree, a concept festival for children in their formative years of development to promote a strong belief. It’s a day dedicated to fathers and their little ones. Kids get a chance to learn and bond with their dads, outdoors.
You must be wondering what part Rustomjee is going to play. Well, we will bring you some games (Grassroots Games – Marbles, Kho-Kho, Spinning Top, Stick Tyre Race and Hopscotch) where the child can exercise his/ her leadership traits. It’s an ideal setting for a dad and child to engage in a non-competitive play, creating their own rules while testing their boundaries too.
Of course, mommies are welcome!
Here’s a quick look at some photographs that were taken last year at the festival.
