CoK has been celebrating Diwali every year for the last 10 years as an annual-day event. It’s a fun-filled and entertaining event when all the children, their caregivers, caretakers, organizers, and guests from all walks of life attend. 

In 2019, on 20th October, we had organized Positive Diwali once again. It was a carnival of colours, culture, music, dance, and games. We had hired a wedding hall for the event, like we do every year. The children danced, sang, played games, and not just the children but the guests also had great fun. The event ended with lunch, and the distribution of gifts to the children. 

Every Diwali, we send the kids home with a hoard of gifts: sweets, snacks, toys, dresses, and a lot more! 

Last year, they got a basic Nokia phone as well with other gifts. Funds for this gift were raised by Murali 2 years back by organizing a walk from Bangalore to Krishnagiri (15th Oct 2017). The entire event was sponsored; for every km a certain amount was funded by generous donors. Nokia even reduced the prices of the phone and gave it at Rs. 400 per piece only! Through the event we were able to raise Rs. 7.5 lakhs! About 10 children accompanied Murali on this walk from Krishnagiri to the new home in Rayakottai. The enthusiastic children wanted to be a part of the fun when they got to know that the foundation of their new home was laid. The walk was also successful in raising awareness about HIV affected children.
