Impressed by a song sung by seven-year-old Raashi during a Rakhi Fair at the District Administrative Complex (DAC), Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma on Wednesday got her admitted to the Ishmeet Singh Music Institute to polish her talent.
The Deputy Commissioner inaugurated the fair, organised by students of the National Child Labour Project (NCLP) School, run by NGO Bhagwan Mahavir Seva Sansthan, along with Additional Deputy Commissioner (D) Amit Kumar Panchal and Assistant Commissioner (UT) Harjinder Singh Bedi.
Sharma then called Ishmeet institute’s management and asked them to offer the best coaching to Raashi, as she had “special talent which needs to be polished”. He assured full support to her and said he would soon visit the school. He visited various stalls set up for the fair and lauded the contribution of NCLP students in making decorated rakhis. The DC said the school aims at rehabilitating child labourers.
