Arunachal students dance in streets for Kerala flood victims
The students of Newman School Neotan, a village school in Changlang district, performed at Namphai Bazar in the middle of the market place from 6:30 am, the time for peak selling and buying.
The program, organized by the school’s Cultural Committee led by Junnem Mossang and Blessy Mossang, brought the market to a standstill.
The students chose Wednesday, the only market day at Namphai Bazar, for fund raising. They have planned to do similar fundraising events at Miao on August 24 and at Kharsang on the following day, the weekly market days of the two places.
The school will forward the proceeds of the fundraising to Seva Kendra Arunachal East, which coordinates he support for Kerala in the eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh.
The whole market chipped in with small contributions. Some parents, touched by their children’s kind gesture, too went around with the collection box while the students entertained the bystanders.
