What to say about Peter sir! He has a magical touch.
I have seen him working with students for the last 15 years. Once you give him the task, Peter will get you the result. He has the art to get work done from the teachers also.
Apart from being a good friend of mine, he is an amazing person.
Someone said ‘Naam Main Kyaa Rakha hai’ I would say, ' Naam se Naam rakhne wale ka pata chalta hai’. LAA PO LAA
Peter Walter, I must congratulate you for your creative thinking and your endeavour to promote the same thinking in children. Covid times have taught us, the world can go topsy-turvy anytime. Only creative minds will create solutions to problems. LAA PO LAA, the very word takes me down the memory lane when once I had a chance to attend your workshop.
I would urge parents and teachers to make their children participate in such activities for their growth of mindset.
May your venture becomes
Har Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani
Laa Po Laaa Rahe Sabki Zubaani.
Walter Peter was a participant in the online version of the International Festival of Youth Theatre GingerFest in Tula, Russia, and won the "Best Actor" award. His work brought a mighty force of light, love and smiles into our festival. We really appreciate his art and hope to welcome him on the Russian stage one day.
Walter Peter's Laa-Po-Laa initiative is an effective way of developing multi-dimensional communication techniques - organisationally and individually. I admire him and his work because he connects with the real issues of our society (especially the children, youth and the most marginalised) and prepares us to express them effectively.
