Marking the 5th anniversary of the Gurugram centre of Manthan Sampoorna Vikas Kendra, we held our Annual Day at GIA house, Gurugram on the 9th of April, 2017.

The event was also dedicated to the Indian New Year Vikrami Samvat 2074 starting from 28th of March, 2017.
Manthanites portrayed their proficiency in speaking Sanskrit through a skit titled 'Shiv Ka Dhunush Kisne Toda’. The Humor oriented play was followed by dance performances by the students of Manthan titled 'Bachhe Mann Ke Sachhe’ and 'Padhoge Likhoge Toh Hoge Nawab’. The young talented performers stunned the audience with their dance and confidence.
Another important part of the Annual Day was the launch of our very own Jingle of Manthan titled 'Padhke Dikhayenge, Badhte Hi Jayenge’ as the whole auditorium gazed at the Manthanites swaying to the music of their jingle.
The students of Manthan depicted the importance of Value Education through their dance 'Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaya’ and gave a group song performance titled 'Mahishasur Mardini'.
