Drawing one into children’s troubled times and minds | Source: Thehindu

Drawing competitions for children generally get entries showing flowers, landscapes, pets or happy families. But a contest organised for Sri Lankan Tamil refugee children brought out pictures of guns, houses on fire and boats full of people on rough seas.The pictures by the children in refugee camps in various parts of Tamil Nadu were displayed at The Madras Terrace House in Royapettah.
At the valedictory ceremony of the exhibition on Sunday, actor and social activist Rohini gave away prizes to some of the children who were judged winners in the drawing contest.
