Our first Children’s Sanskrit centre is currently being administered at the Society House (Beach Office) of Sri Aurobindo Society, Puducherry, on Saturdays (from 4 to 6 pm). At present three students, ages 6–9, are enrolled at the centre. These students attend three different schools in Puducherry and come to the centre every Saturday for their Sanskrit class. The class is run by Ms. R. Rajakumari (teacher–coordinator, Samskrita Bālaparivāra Yojana and Sanskrit teacher at SAFIC).
On December 15, 2018, the students – Aravind, Monisha and Varun (the latter two being siblings) – gave their first end-of-semester presentation at a specially organized programme at the Beach Office. The children came dressed in their colourful dresses, ready to enthral the audience with their performances. The programme started at 5:00 pm with a small welcome message by Ms. Rajakumari, followed by a small invocation to Lord Ganesha, presented in Sanskrit by the three students.
