Kids Kids Weekends Interests

It is said that Baba loved kids and used to become one among kids, be it playing with them, telling them stories, or teaching them values. The Parivaar, expanded into the neighboring unit (#3) with the noble intention of using it as a Bhajan hall.

Today, that hall, much to the delight of our little angels, has become a get-together venue for all the nanhe Sais. Fun stuff like chess practice help sharpen their minds, while the story-telling sessions familiarize them with the glorious heritage of our motherland. All these are conducted in an informal setting and active parent participation. Once dusk sets, all the kids huddle up in the reading room, and spend time reading; A few even get their homework to the temple.

But that’s about all! Outside of those few hours, the young soldiers virtually take over the hall and the neighboring halls as well. Parents have long since mastered the art of balancing their plates and glasses and dodging the attacking tackles of a ‘tag team’. Kids of various ages, gather here, build new friendships, strengthen existing bonds, play, mingle, learn and have fun, all the while, as a parent or two keep a watchful eye on them.

Parents pray while children play!

Ask any kids and they love to come to temple. Sometimes it's to meet their friends and other times it's to participate in the lot of fun filled educational activities that includes but not limited to Chess , Story Telling, Bhajans .
