A Day Out for Smile Children
        in Zee TV Li'l Champ


Ae Zindagi, gale lagale, hum ne bhi tere har ek gum ko gale se lagaya hai, hai Na………..” (Oh life, embraces us as we had embraced each and every sorrow you have given to us, haven’t we!).

These lines were synonymous with 250 privileged children of Smile Foundation from its projects in underprivileged communities across Maharashtra, who took part in the musical show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs aired on Zee TV on 21st September, 2006, Thursday. The musical challenge programme for children below 15 years is anchored by renowned Indi-pop singer Shaan. The Underprivileged children were excited to watch the show live from the studio in Mumbai.

The three judges of the show viz. famous Hindi singers Abhijeet and Alka Yagnik, and music director Bappi Laheri including special guest Ghazal Maestro Jagjit Singh encouraged the Smile children.

The children of Smile Foundation were excited during the show and when the anchor Shaan introduced them saying that ‘is mauke par hamare saath hain Smile Foundation ke pyare pyare bacche’ [gracing the occasion are loveable children from Smile Foundation with us] the children went in high spirits. Smile children were also given free passes of Essel World [Amusement Park in Mumbai].
