Hindi Poem – ‘Leke Chalo Sabko’ is a poetic creation of Seema Verma. It is recited by our precocious little boy, Ayaan Arora. He strings together the pearls of this beautiful poetry with great confidence and flair.
It takes a village to raise a child. We must expose children to new-er experiences that group activities bring.
Alone we can do so little;
together we can do so much.
– Helen Keller
In many ways, this poem is a gentle reminder to parents as well. Embroiled in the fast pace of daily lives. We forget the importance of collaboration and compassion. And the joy it brings.
There’s something about working in unison with people around us, fills us up with the feeling of fulfilment.
Why is it important for children to learn collaboration?
In this age of millennials, where families have become smaller and gadgets take over the free play. It is imperative for children to engage with their peers to develop social skills and develop trust in each other. This way children develop confidence in themselves. As they interact and share their opinions in a larger group. It also helps them cope with the leadership profiles in their later years.
A happy unison where the child shares their knowledge and receives others. It makes them learn and grow their knowledge and experiences manifold.
A new study reveals that children who work in groups, learn how to resolve petty arguments and make fast growth in Math, Science and reading.
Let this Hindi poem take you back into the memory lane. Revisit the lessons of partnership from our childhood and teach our next-gen.
So, go out there. Extend a helping hand. Reach out and empathise and don’t feel shy of asking it for yourself too.
