The School Principal and the authorities were very co-operative with us and helped with the arrangements and provided us with rooms for the exhibition. The response from students was very good. Students eagerly went through all the books and Vivekananda literature. Students were of different backgrounds regarding their mother tongue. Since, this school is a part of Hindi Prachar Sabha, many students of North Indian origin wanted books written in Hindi, and they were arranged for in the second day.
The Principal, Ms. K Padmeshwari, has been associated with Ramakrishna Math and its activities for a long time. The school management were satisfied with the way the exhibition was conducted and thanked the volunteers and Ramakrishna Mission for this initiative. The school also requested some books for their library.
