A warm Sunday afternoon with the Tots

We all know that the Tara Tots love to play. Whether it is with footballs or with books...

Fayum and his football
Naughty Piyush playing with his books!
Or better yet with their big brothers, who are very present at the moment while the Tara Boys home is under construction.

But sometimes (and by sometimes I mean very rarely), they have their calm moments. And these moment are absolutely golden for the blog's novice photographers!

Thoughtful Khushboo
Dramatic Deepika

The Next Billy Elliot in the Tara Tots Home?

The Tara Tots dance shows aren't prepared overnight, the little ones practice every week to keep their moves up to scratch. Here they are rehearsing... their 'pas de bourrée' may not be perfect but you can admire their somersaults and unequalled coordination!

Never smile at a crocodile

The regular swimmers of the Pacific Complex swimming pool didn't know what hit them last Sunday when a small army of 13 Tara Boys suddenly invaded the pool, splashing their way through and sneaking up on unsuspecting volunteers.

Rilka has returned for Tara's fourth swimming season. This year the boys were fully equipped with muti-coloured shiny goggles, donated by Sebastian Bettiol from the Propulsion Acquatic  Swimming Club in Melbourne, Australia. They were very impressed with Sebastian's muscles; maybe if they practise their swimming with as much dedication they might grow some Sebastian muscle too!

Vinay spent the whole afternoon pretending to be a crocodile, so sneaky!

The boys were very excited and really loved the crazy colours and reflective glass-wear; making them feel like Bollywood stars.
