Our Bala Gokulam program, since its inception in 2011, has been offering Sanskrit classes for children in collaboration with Samskrita Bharati, a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to revive and promote Sanskrit.
It is to be noted with pride that Bala Gokulam has one of the most vibrant and largest Sanskrit student groups in the Greater Boston region. This was in full evidence in the recent Shloka Spardha competition conducted by Samskrita Bharati on 15th December, 2015. Two of our Bala Gokulam students, Deepthi B, representing the youngest group of contestants, and Rohan M, representing the second group of contestants, both won first prizes in their respective categories! Not to be left behind, the first prize in the adult category was won by Smt. Sireesha V, our beloved former teacher at Bala Gokulam.
Our hearty congratulations to Deepthi, Rohan, and Sireesha for their success, and to all the other contestants who participated. We encourage all children and parents to actively participate in such forums, which are great ways to enhance, enrich and showcase their skills.
