Book stall at Gulbarga in “Kalburgi Kampu”

Dear Friends,

We are happy to inform you, that our Math has participated in a Socio-Cultural Awareness Programme namely “Kalburgi Kampu”. The programme was organized at Gulbarga, during 23rd Dec 2010 to 1st Jan 2011, by Bharat Vikas Sangam along with Hyderabad-Karnataka Abhivriddhi Vibhag, Sedam.

The purpose of the programme is to bring out a change in the attitude of Rural and Semi Urban people, who find themselves, totally depend upon Government for their social welfare.

About 7 lakh people including School children and College students from Hyderabad-Karnataka Region participated in this event which showcased the achievements, in various fields, of the local people who followed the motto of “Think globally Act locally”.

Many monks, NGOs, social thinkers, scientists, statesmen, administrators and judges participated in the programme and shared their knowledge.

People were made aware of Indian culture, of their inner potentialities, local natural resources, Hygiene, etc. Students and youth were motivated to grow with social responsibilities and to contribute to the Nation.

The programme which lasted for 10 days, was a grand success with seminars, discussions, exhibition of various talents of the rural people, sale of artifacts and literature, which connected the remote rural and semi-urban people.

Accepting the invitation, we participated in the programme to spread the inspiring and life giving messages through the literature of Sri Ramakrishna- Vivekananda – Vedanta.
