“It was an emotional moment as the parents and children were in tears by the end of programme as after a long time, they got a chance to spend time with their children,” he added.

Pune: It was an emotional moment for all at the Family Court when parents fighting divorce cases came together to spend time with their children. As the parents were united with their children, tears rolled down their eyes as these children were deprived of love from both parents. 

For the first time, Pune Family Court, Lawyers Association and Anamprem Sanstha held a special evening by organising a dinner for the children with their parents whose divorce petitions are pending before the court. The event was held on the premises of Pune Family Court. 

On the occasion, special programmes were held for the children like Sitar Vadan and a play depicting the meeting of Luv-Kush with their father Lord Rama for the first time. A total of 23 families were part of this celebration. The event was graced by Bombay High Court Judge Shalini Phansalkar-Joshi, Family Court Chief Justice AA Shahpura, Pune Family Court Lawyers Association member Ganesh Kavade, Adv Vaishali Chandane and others. 

Justice Phansalkar-Joshi said, “It’s the responsibility of both parents to give their children a pleasant childhood.  

I appreciate the initiative for bringing these families together and giving these children moments of happiness.” Talking about the event, Kavade said, “These children face a lot of mental harassment due to the constant fight between the parents for their custody. We wanted to bring all families together and give the message that parents should be always available for their children, keeping their differences aside. It is their responsibility to give them a pleasant childhood.”
