They don't like to be corrected and instructed by their parents any longer - they have heard this for so many years! Now they need other role models, heroes and mentors, who guide and inspire them. It does not mean that they are ungrateful to their parents - no, they are forever grateful for all the care and love their parents have given to them, but now they want to be treated and respected as adults, and want to see their parents as friends to whom they may turn whenever they feel like.
We started the day joining mangal artik - I was happy to see many of our girls eagerly attending! After darshan artik we went on a Harinam procession all the way to Kolavecha Sridhar's house, where Hari Priya Mataji shared pastimes of Kolavecha Sridhar and Lord Gauranga with us, and afterwards the girls were playing some interesting games.
In the evenings we had bonfires, and the girls had great fun in the association of new as well as old friends.
On the last day everybody offered a wrapped up gift which I re-distributed to each and everyone, so we all offered a gift and received one aswell, which was a sweet note to conclude the event.
Your servant, Devaki dd
