The students of Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics celebrated Christmas with the young patients of Cooper Hospital in Vile Parle, Mumbai. The students joyously brought in celebrations of X-Mas by adding colorful decorations to the wards with the purpose of uplifting the mood and improving the mental well-being of the children.

The merrymaking took place in the form of dancing, innumerable heartful conversations with little children and teaching them quick origami, which was followed by decorating the Christmas Tree to keep up with the spirit of X-Mas.


The college students spread positivity, happiness and instilled hope in minds of the families of these young patients who go through a state of equal mental trauma. Dr. PruthakShah, a first-year resident doctor in Pediatrics shared, "It was such a thoughtful and selfless initiative by students from NM College. The smile and excitement that they managed to bring on the faces of these kids was priceless; A new way to heal their hearts."

The biggest surprise for the young patients was the appearance of Santa Claus during the lively celebrations. He presented a special gift to each patient, welcoming one smile at a time.

"The objective was to bring a smile on the faces of the children, through this activity, our students learned to be more compassionate and were informed about the challenges faced by the entire family" shared Dr. Parag Ajgaonkar, the Principal of Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics.


All in all, the magic of Christmas was kept alive. Saharsh Bijraniya, the student who led this event expressed, "We thought of celebrating Christmas with the patients in the children wards as it would help in lifting the spirits of the sick children and give them the chance of experiencing the cherished festival."
