Under the Peepal Tree: The Sunday that was

Last Sunday, few parents gathered with their little ones and played games! Considering this was a day dedicated to the busy daddies and the always snoozing babies, we got them to play together in a completely non-competitive manner.

And if you’re wondering what part Rustomjee was playing, we sponsored the Grassroot games segment. Here kids got a chance to learn and bond with their dads and simultaneously exercise their leadership traits. Some of the games played included marbles (we bet, you’re going to start recollecting some memories as we continue), kho-kho, spinning top, stick-tyre race and hopscotch. Of course, the kids won! Who has more energy anyway?

Rustomjee lays emphasis on adding value to the lives of their homeowners through their core business, their CSR initiatives and philanthropy. We have strived to ensure that every blueprint includes child-friendly spaces for parks, playgrounds, and learning rooms and thereby encouraging families to spend quality time with each other. Apart from games, Rustomjee was also giving out the #FamilyTime cards pack which generated a lot of interest in parents and kids.

Here’re few pictures from the event:

And while we were at this, we spoke with a few parents to share their views. Here’s what they said:

Under the Peepal Tree: For daddies and their little ones

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.
