1st June is marked as the International Childrenâ€™s Day. This day is all over the world is celebrated and observed to protect the fundamental rights of every children of this universe. Childhood is perhaps the only time in life when one smiles and plays in the midst of extreme poverty and misfortune. An age when color, religion, caste or financial status doesnâ€™t become a barrier in friendship. A child only sees another child as his friend and companion.An universal brotherhood among them has always been an inspiration to all of us.
And to pay tribute to every children and their childhood, to honour their unaffected innocence and purity in the complexities of the modern time, PhotoPeer along with the association of Russian Centre of Science and Culture (Kolkata) has organised a Photographic Exposition at Gorky Sadan from 2nd June to 5th June, 2010.
Its our constant endeavour to portray the different aspects of human joy, sadness, triumph and defeat through our photographs. And children, with their dreams and reality, Innocence and the cruelty of their misfortunes has always inspired us to do something for them. Therefore we have decided to dedicate our first photographic exhibition on children.
We raise our voice for the basic human rights of every children of the modern times and for the coming generations.These include the rights for education, healthy food and safe & clean drinking water. We demand a safer and greener world for them to live happily. We voice for their freedom. We want them to grow up in a world of equality, justice and peace.
We have named this event as â€œLet there be Sunshineâ€œ, hoping that this little effort from our part will help to bring some fresh lights into the existing problems, dreams and realities of the modern children, to take action against all that is prohibiting a children to have his/her basic rights and to dispel darkness of illiteracy & poverty.
