The TreeHouse chain distributes national flags among students in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Rajasthan
The young recipients in Pune, Vadodara, and Jaipur made formations to showcase the tricolour in all its glory. Bhatia adds, “After two years of online celebrations, children across the country are finally able to come together just in time for our 75th Independence Day and we wanted to make a special gesture to mark this occasion and to make it truly memorable for them.”
Bhatia believes patriotism should not just be sentiment reserved for Independence Day or Republic Day but should be expressed through constructive actions for the benefit of the nation and says, “At TreeHouse, we try to educate children in a comprehensive way so that they can grow up to be responsible, proactive citizens. Sensitising them to the meaning and importance of our national flag is just one way of bringing them closer to what India represents. Our children, across all age groups, also get to participate in the flag hoisting ceremony on Independence Day,” he added.
TreeHouse was founded in 2003 and continues to serve children in pre-schools and high schools.
