Republic Day Competition Results 2024!

Hari OM!
Our theme for the Republic day competitions this year was centered around Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda as it is the 108th anniversary of Swamiji’s birth (May 8th 1916).

It was wonderful to see our Bala Vihar students from Gurukul and Marietta locations participate in our Republic Day competitions for Art, Writing and Speech!

They shared their reflections on the impact of Gurudev and his work on the world through the topics and the results were heart warming.

Thanks to all the students who participated and congratulations to those who won and also to all Sevaks that helped plan, conduct and judge the competitions!
