To spread awareness, Child Relief and You (CRY) has organized its annual street theatre festival Bal Natya Utsav at Dilli Haat. The three-day festival will end on November 14, in the form of short skits and plays performed by children attached to CRY projects, schools, colleges and different NGO’s such as Kutumb and Manzil. The skits will focus on the different aspects of child rights, its importance and gross violation in the country.
