Chennai is buzzing with activity of various kind with mothers towing their kids as young as two plus to join them in a summer camp. The short term courses and workshops available range from painting, drawing, cartooning, story writing, pottery, paper flowers and what not and every course appears to have a great draw, the high fee charged notwithstanding.
It was amusing to watch these tiny tots draw a lion which looked more like a horse and a parrot resembling a sparrow. Their mothers were more enthusiastic than their wards as they took time off to bring them along and sit through patiently till the class was over.
I wished a summer camp would be conducted where there existed no age restriction so that even mothers and grandmothers could attend and learn something they are passionate about.
