Few things children can do to show their patriotism and act as responsible citizens of India

• Children can start a Swatch Bharat program in their neighbourhood

• Children can start Teach Technology campaign in their neighbourhood wherein they can teach technology to senior citizens or to any person who is not tech savvy. This way they can contribute to reduce the digital divide in our country.

• Children can start Health club in their locality to encourage healthy living.

This is a pure Indian Style Comedy Series. Motu and Patlu are very close friends living in the town named Furfuri Nagar .They are in good terms with the police inspector named Chingam Sir , Dr. Jhatka who keeps on experimenting to invent something new and Ghasitaram. Motu is fond of eating especially the samosas. Both of them land up into awkward situations off and on due to their innocence. Motu is more stronger physically and Patlu is more brainy of the two .

Importance of Oneself:

Each one of us lives his life in myth , believing that he is very important to the organization to which he belongs. Organization can be an office, a home etc. The best way to see importance of oneself is to move away from the organization for sometime and see how many days or sometimes months it takes to refill your presence. The faster you are replaced the better judgement you can have of your worth.
Nothing is permanent in Life. Neither your position nor your being. Everything is ever changing. Leading a wishful Life , thinking I will do this so that I will be in good books of this person or that person is putting yourself into bondage. This bondage leads to unrealistic expectations. Unrealistic expectations always lead to misery.
Whatever one does should be done for the love it and not with the expectation that if I will do this I will be in the good books of somebody or my worth in an organization will increase. Both being in the good books of somebody or increasing of self worth of a person in an organization is temporary. Temporary things remain for sometime and vanish as the situation changes. Being attached to false image of self worth leads to pain and misery. Let us liberate ourselves from the shackles of bondage and lead a truly blissful Life.
