Mohini Mahadevia, Workshop 4
Little Rohan had always seen the tri-colour being worshipped at his home. His grandfather, father and his favourite Shaan Chachu always wore their tri-colour badges with pride. He always wanted to grow up and follow their footsteps into the army.
This Children’s’ Day, he decided to dress up as the tri-colour and designed his look himself.
“Click a photo and send to Shaan Chachu,” he told his mother.
“Yes, beta,” she said, silently wiping a tear away, for Shaan Chachu was also sporting the tri-colour, this time, wrapped in one.
