“The foundation of success in life is good health: that is the substratum fortune; it is also the basis of happiness. A person cannot accumulate a fortune very well when he or she is sick.” This has been very well said by P.T.Barnum. Maintaining good health should be the primary focus for everyone. Keeping this goal in focus, Manthan-SVK organizes health camps at regular intervals of time in association with various organizations to ensure a healthy life for the students.
