Sai Krushna Mandir Updates

On 7th January, an eye check-up camp was held in school in co-ordination with doctors from Karthik Netralaya. The doctors were headed by founding member, Dr Karthik himself, and the doctors first briefed the children about eye care and followed it up with screening of all the children. Exceptional cases were identified and children with refractive lens requirements were listed. All these children will be provided with free spectacles and those needing special attention will be taken to the Karthik Netralaya for follow-up. The camp also saw the participation of almost 70 parents and villagers in addition to the participation of the 250 school children from classes 1-10 and their teachers. The event was a grand success and we profusely thank Mr Pothana Setty, Mr Ashok Meda and Dr Karthik Meda for their continued support and help in this.
The children have also been busy with different contests like Spelling Bee conducted by Mrs Vijayalakshmy Krishnan this month.  Prizes were given for all students class-wise based on their ability to spell 30 different words given during the contest. It was wonderful to see all the children participating with enthusiasm and we hope that this will increase their zest for learning. 
Republic day was celebrated in school on 26th January, 2014. This time the function was a brief occasion involving the Chief Guest’s speech and welcome speeches by the school students and teachers. The children sang the national anthem and saviouries were distributed to all the children. 

On 27th January, 2014, all of us celebrated the birthday of Shreyas Gowda- one of the children residing in Sai Krushna Mandir. Cake cutting was done and the Happy birthday song was sung,  just after Shreyas took the arathi for Bhagavan. 
We were also very happy to have had many visitors this month. Kalpana aunty and Niki aunty from London spent time teaching bhajans and gardening to the children. They also got them some interesting story books and goodies from London.  Asmita aunty and Urvashi aunty spent time classifying the library books for the children and labelling them. Thanks to Mr Kaliprasad and Mrs Usha for their thoughtful gesture of getting rice and dal for the kids.  Mr Madhav Naik’s visit from Vermont, USA along with his family was nice too.
The SKM team is now actively engaged in finding a suitable warden on paid basis. The major duties of the warden will involve supervising the children, helping them with their homework and co-curricular activities. Knowledge of computers, record maintenance and driving skills will be bonuses on this job.
We look forward to all your active involvement and participation in this God given opportunity. We also welcome you to come and visit the site and participate in the activities of Sai Krushna Mandir. We pray that Swami’s grace will crown our genuine intentions and He will continue to guide and bless the children and residents to live in a happy home and grow to his ideals.
