    "The Hindus world over celebrate Vinayaka Chaturthi on the 5th of September, the fourth day of the waxing moon, in the month of Bhadrapada. The celebrations continue for ten days till the 14th day of the bright moon. Devotees make clay images of Ganesha, do prana pratishta, and worship the Lord of Obstacles offering modakam, durva and red hibiscus flowers.

    A heart touching event was organised by Sambodh Centre, Bangalore, at the Bhuvaneshwari Nagar Govt School on 6 August 2016 ... Kids come from very poor families, but their smile and cheer surpass all difficulties... We could also greet the proud parents who watched with happiness the laurels that have come to their kids. This time we also insisted that atleast one parent should have a bank account started in their name, and the scholarship will be deposited in that account ... A small step in making them aware the need of saving money ... WATCH PICTURES FROM THIS EVENT

    Sri Shivanand Kanavi was the Chief Guest, in the 2015 event (July 25). In his coversation with the kids he asked "what is your dream" ... and their answers gave inspiration to each one of us ... ... If these kids who may not have much to eat a day, no new dresses, not the luxury of studying under an electric bulb, but perhaps taking care of a home and siblings ... if these kids could smile, dream, and say with extreme confidence ... that they want to become a teacher, a doctor, a police person, a military officer, a "chief minister" ... etc. ... then what more do we need to know that their hopes are in place ... ...WATCH ALBUM
