This is a one of its kind opportunity to discover the latent talent of budding and upcoming generation through their sincere and creative thoughts about nation.

Our sole aim is to sensitize/motivate/educate young and budding children through art towards the importance of our National Symbols.


Why is Peacock, the national bird of India?


In 1963, the peacock was declared the National Bird of India because of its rich religious and legendary involvement in Indian traditions. The criteria for this choice were many. The bird must be well-distributed within the country so it could be truly 'NATIONAL'. It must be recognizable to the common man. It must lend itself to formal depiction, i.e. abstract depiction on government publications, etc. It must not be confused with the bird emblem of any other nation. It should be associated with Indian myths and legends. The peacock fit the bill.

There are three types of peacocks exist -- Indian, Green and Congo. Technically, the birds are known as peafowl; peacock refers to the male bird and peahen refers to the female. A peacock typically weighs anywhere from two to 13 pounds and boasts a wingspan of up to 63 inches. Peacocks live for 15 to 20 years.
