Particularly on Bhaudhik Satra we had a discussion on the topics like “activities for further development of Vivekananda Kendra”, “what are the other ways to serve the society through Vivekananda Kendra” and “as a V.K.V. teacher what shall we do to fulfill the expectation of the society”.
And some of our senior teacher’s although they were not the part of this camp directly but they have come and shared their valuable words on the topics like :-
