The activities in which the children's little theatre are engaged, are a move in the right direction. They help in bringing children together irrespective of caste, creed or colour, and besides, providing children the much needed mirth and joy in their lives. Here is the wider and what i consider to be a more important aspect of the matter, is that, such activities are bound to contribute, as these children grow up, in the building up of healthy harmonious and useful citizen.

I am happy to learn that a children's little theatre is being organised in Calcutta. I wish it all success and i hope that it will bring joy to the children and perhaps make their elders realise how much wisdom their is in a child.

It is notable venture, which i trust will be continued and extended. Two things struck us specially-first the way in which children so obviously enjoyed their dances even when they were long and elaborate, and secondly the remarkable talent revealed by a number of children. I suggest that the children's little theatre be bought to the notice of UNESCO through the agencyof the india national commission for UNESCO, with a view to UNESCO encouraging this venture and promoting similar ventures in other countries.

I am glad to know that the children's little theatre, Calcutta, will celebrate its silver jubilee in December, 1975. On this happy occasion i offer my congratulations to all those associated with the institution and send my best wishes for the success of the celebration.

F.A. Ahmed, President of India

 

A child's world is full of wonder in which fantasy and reality intermingle. Participation in creative activities gives an outlet to the child's self expression and helps to develop a fuller personality.
The children's little theatre has built a movement for cultural activities by children and for children. My good wishes for them on their silver jubilee celebration.

Indira Gandhi, Prime Minister, India

 

The children's little theatre is a favorite of mine. As chairman of the Sangeet Natak Akademi i have come across many organisations with similar Objectives, but there is none which i hold in greater esteem and affection.
It has been a fruitful and exciting quarter century for the clt. I have no doubt that the coming decades will be even more fruitful and exhilarating, because perfection is the watchword of the CLT and the nearer one approaches perfection the more exciting it becomes.
