New beginnings

For most people enjoying New Year means a big party with music, dancing and eats. But this year, class 10 students of Rosary School Viman Nagar presented a variety program for the disabled jawans at Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre on January 5. The jawans thoroughly enjoyed the dances of India, skits, and vigorous demonstrations of karate and pyramid formations. At the end of the program the students interacted with the jawans and distributed chocolates.
