If you haven't ever been to Bihar in your life, here's where you can find
a huge collection of puppets in the hands of mentally challenged people.
The Hyderabad Puppet Theater in association with Vooyala Communications and
the Hyderabad City Granthalaya Samstha is organizing 'Mento Puppet 2002', a
workshop with free training in educational puppetry for teachers dealing with
mentally challenged students.
Both teachers and mentally challenged children will be imparted training in
the making of educational puppets with waste material, which can be used as
educational aids for the children. Around 100 children from 20 schools will
take part in this unique workshop.
In the evening there will be an exhibition, where the various items made by
the mentally retarded children will be displayed. Please contact C V Ramana
at 332-8613 for further details.
