On Sunday, a few slum children who have excelled in academics got an opportunity to enjoy water cruise ride at Boat Club.
Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (MPTDC) Chairman Tapan Bhowmick welcomed children as special guest and also encouraged them to excel in all fields in future. Amiable weather conditions added to water cruise ride at Upper Boat Club which was enjoyed by children.

Slum children from different colonies were also felicitated during the occasion. Future of country lies with children and schools play a huge role in bridging the gap between urban and rural sector. Creativity shown by these underprivileged children are no way inferior to ideas of students of the city and these students are our future leaders. The only need is to provide platforms where they can showcase their talent.

Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation occasionally arranges such visits especially to facilitate children from poor background to enjoy infotainment events. Such visits not only add up to personality but also brings lot of knowledge to children. During the occasion, MPTDC Chairperson Tapan Bhowmick also interacted with students and gave them knowledge about importance of Upper Lake, Boat Club area and also tried to get their feedback on water cruise ride. He also said that children from poor family usually do not get such opportunity to enjoy boat rides and other amusement activities. Main reason is due to financial constraints many a times their dreams are not given any opportunity to develop into reality. He said that it is duty of society to help such children so that they can explore their potential.

Notably, in a bid to imbibe awareness and knowledge about importance of local heritage sites in particular many activities is being organised by MP Tourism.
Awareness on local spots and its importance also needs to be given to slum children as they can play a vital role in keeping the city clean and spread the message to protect the heritage sites.

Children need to be given encouragement and those who excel in academics and other sectors in spite of living in adverse conditions should be given complete opportunity to develop their talent. This event was organised as an effort to enhance talent and encourage such children.
