3) SUMMER SPECIAL FOR KIDS - BACK TO ROOTS PROGRAMME
In our fast-moving lives exposed to the hype of global media and buzz of social media, we risk losing touch with reality, more so our historical, social and cultural roots. India, even before being conceived as a nation, boasted of a truly rich heritage and an eternally contemporary treasure of knowledge. This trove has been lost due to cultural apathy and centuries of foreign invasion and the sabotage of ancient Indian culture. The Back To Roots Programme aims to introduce India to Indians.. and what better time to start than with your young. Teach them about your land, its people and a culture of a civilisation ... the oldest of them all. Come back, home!

5) SUMMER SPECIAL FOR KIDS - WHY LAW
Law is that one thing that affects each one us in everything we do. However, it's the basics of law that are lost out on children who simply do not know why, for example, it is illegal to jump a signal or to insult someone online. DraftCraft's workshop 'Why Law' deals with why we need Law that affects us on a daily basis. For minors, moving into the real world, fetches a sea of questions. This workshop tackles the most important and the most basic of them all...Why! It sensitises the young while making the entire exercise interesting and involving them all along.

6) SUMMER SPECIAL FOR KIDS - MORALS THAT MATTER
In life, law matters the most to us. But what moulds our basic understanding of life and law are morals. So, with Panchatantra and Akbar-Birbal stories giving way to WhatsApp forwards and Facebook posts, we lose out on the very foundation of life. DraftCraft identifies the links to law and life tracing them back to the basics - Morals and hosts workshops and sessions for infants in their formative years. The sessions filled with dance, theatre, drama and film teach them all about life...through morals that actually matter.
