October 15, the birthday of Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam, is celebrated as "Day for Inspired Reading".
On this occasion, Shri Chatrapati Shivaji Vidyalaya at Paud conducted a procession of sacred texts (Granth Dindi) in which 500 students of the school participated. Eight students from our Chinmaya Social Responsibility (CSR) project presented a tabla recital at the school assembly. The children were congratulated and the CSR faculty team, including Shri Siddhivinayak Lohagale, Shri Ganesh Kandhare and Shri Rahul Pingle, who also presented a bhajan, were felicitated by the school authorities.
Since August 2018 Shri Lohagale, Tabla faculty for the CSR project, has been providing tabla training pro bono at the school. So far 29 students have been benefiting from these sessions.
