BALAGOKULAM, the world’s biggest children organisation is going to conduct an International Children’s Meet (Krishnayanam- 2010) at Thrissur on the eve of celebrating its 35th years of service among children. A mammoth gathering of 25,000 children with their workers selected from 2000 units of Kerala will attend the function on April 3 and 4.
Balagokulam started as a cultural movement for children has become an important element of the social life in Kerala. By developing Sri Krishnajayanti as a national festival of Kerala, the organisation could paste its figure in the minds of Kerala people. People accepted Balagokulam as the only way to direct their children in proper way. At the time of starting, the circumstances prevailed in Kerala was very different. A cultural anarchism was there due to Western education and Western isms and religions had crossed its every limit. To a great extent Balagokulam won in the effort of protecting young generation from this materialistic mind.
The successful execution of Gokulotsavam on 1995 at Kalady and Balamahasammelan at Kochi were proved the strength of Balagokulam. The efforts made by Balagokulam for re-establishing the traditional family system of India could find good results. The idea proposed by Balagokulam that to inculcate the children the feelings to the society and also to improve their personal qualities are necessary for a good society, has received by Kerala with both of its hands.
With this mind the workers and sympathisers of Balagokulam and Sangh living outside Kerala taking care to start Balagokulam units wherever they reached. Now-a-days Balagokulam has its roots on 10 states of India and 10 countries outside India. Besides this, in almost all the states and many other countries the Swayamsevaks are conducting Balagokulam-like activities.
Well-wishers of children from all over the world shall have an opportunity to attend this programme as it is a pre-thinking regarding a children’s policy, the future of the young world and the earth.
