----- There's a SURPRISE gift for all my students this year -----


For the special initiative this year, I have teamed up with Paalaguttapalle community.


A group of artisan women from a small village in Chittoor District in Andhra Pradesh who have designed the school gift for Vijayadasmi.


They are a beautiful community of upcoming entrepreneurs who work hard to sustain their families & livelihoods. 


I am grateful for their efforts for our Vijayadasmi 2021 event & it gives me immense happiness that our initiative has contributed to their efforts in a small yet effective manner.

Watch this news coverage about Paalaguttapalle here-

Looking forward to meeting my students in-person after 1.5 years.
