Leon’s World is committed to the holistic development of children. In keeping with this numerous cultural activities are planned all year round. Art and music are a part of the regular classes conducted at Leon’s World. Further Leon’s World will introduce children to the amazing world of theatre and plays by hosting a play on the First Sunday of Each Month – bringing a wealth of stories to life for these young, impressionable minds.
The initiative will kick off with the “The Legend of Lachit”, based on the story of Lachit Borphukan – the brave warrior hero from Assam who has the National Defence Academy’s Best Cadet Award – named after him.
The Legend of Lachit is a story of wit, bravery and perseverance and how Lachit heroically defended Assam from the force of the monstrous Mughal army. The tales of his bravery have been handed down from generation to generation in Assam. This Shivaji of the East is a name that is less known but is no less heroic and inspires one as much as Maharana Pratap and Rani Laxmibai!
The Legend of Lachit will be presented by Dr Pooja Jain, a certified Secret Passages Storyteller who has been holding story telling sessions for young children. She is also a fine puppeteer & most of her stories are woven with music.
Leon’s World welcomes all to this unique opportunity to expand cultural horizons and experience the magic of theatre. Children will also be encouraged to reflect on what they see or learn from the play through a Reflective Art Session. What better way to spend a Sunday?
