The children lent expression to their love for nature, their family, friends, country and humanity through many different colours in the event based on the theme United Colours of India.
The children also benefitted from the presence of professional painters and volunteers who added further colour to the event. The event was organised in collaboration with the J&K Education Department. The Chinar Corps provided the logistics, administration and financial support.
