Forum Vijaya Paints The Town Saffron, White & Green
On the occasion of Independence Day, Forum Vijaya, Chennai saw a huge participation of over 500 kids between the age group of 4 to 14 years old who had great eagerness to express their love for our country as well as a lot of creative energy to expend. It was a real spectacle seeing so many children joyously letting their colours run wild on paper and express their talents. Once they were done, all the masterpieces were displayed within the mall premises for an entire week.
