Twinklers visit to Nehru Planetarium during RTI Week – DART 130

14 Twinkers and 8 DARTERS visited the Nehru Planetarium at Teen Murti House on Sunday, Nov 18. This was part of kids Taare Zameen Par (TZP) activity. It was quite an apt venue to have the TZP here as they also learned about Taare Asmaan main or real stars in the sky.

Twinklers explored things about Universe, planets, earth and stars. They climbed up the model of the India’s first Rocket launcher and also saw the exhibition put up at the planetarium. The exhibition had some interesting models and displays, talking about different aspects of universe. There was also the space suit worn by India’s first astronaut Rakesh Sharma and the space craft model in which he traveled to space.

Later they were taken for a fantastic film show on the development of TIME in ancient India.

After the exploration was over, the kids spent a leisurely noon in the sprawling lawns of Teen Murti House, the house of former PM Jawaharlal Nehru. They painted and painted and also had their lunch!!. Each kid coming out with his/her vision of the universe, nature and what not!


Twinklers shine at RTI’s “Draw India Draw Contest” – DART 130

It was a moment of immense pride and joy when we received the news that of two of our DART twinklers – HARSHITA JAIN & ANANYA TANTIA were awarded the consolation prizes for their drawings at DRAW INDIA DRAW 2012 – the all India drawing contest by Round Table India. Around six twinklers from DART had sent in their entries for the contest

It was all the more heartening to see these two smart girls as winners considering that the contest had hundreds of entries from the entire tabling fraternity in the country. This recognition would surely come as a boost to these budding artistes.

Dussehra Dhamaka 2012 – GLMF DART 130

Dear all,

The flagship event of DART 130 was held on October 24, 2012 at a farm in Rajokri, New Delhi. Over the years this has become one of the most successful fellowship cum publicity & fund raising events for the table and also one of the biggest events for Area 5. The chief guest for the occasion was renowned Sarangi player, Ustad Kamal Sabri ji.

In its 8th year (5th year in partnership with DMRT 149), the fair had more than 45 stalls and 10 charity stalls. There were lots of tablers from different tables present for the event and quite a few also took up the free charity stalls.

There were also a few firsts: All food stalls were taken up by tablers and some of the top brands participated for the first time ever like: Yogurberry and Haldiram, thereby enhancing both the class and palette of the annual affair.

The kids’ activity area had the highest number of activities ever that included a very large bouncy, toy train ride, plane ride, balloon shooting, make up, tattoo making, art n craft by an expert art teacher and clay modelling.

We also had a large number of lifestyle product stalls ranging from innovative kids educational toys to the latest designer clothes and home accessories. The finale was as always with the burning of the huge, 40ft tall Ravan effigy with lots of eye catching fireworks!

Ladies of DART along with DMLC 89 yet again displayed their passion and creativity. Their cooperation made the event a success. Overall a satisfying experience for all those who participated in the event!

Twinklers Visit to “Rashtrapati Bhawan” – DART 130


Dear All
As part of its continuous efforts to strengthen its Twinklers Club, DART has decided to hold a number of educative and entertaining activities for the kids and one of them was a visit to the Rashtrapati Bhawan on August 25, 2012.
In the month when we celebrate Independence Day, DART 130 took its Kids for a tour of the home of the First Citizen of India. A large number of Darters – including 8 ladies and 11 kids – visited the Rashtrapati Bhawan.
The visit was highly educational and informative for everyone. It was especially interesting for all the twinklers as the visit helped instill a sense of patriotism in them. They learnt about the history of India, history of the grand 90-year-old building and also about the Indian Presidents.
DART plans to do many such activities for its kids where they can both enjoy and learn about things.
