Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home
After the all exciting and energizing day 2. Here is what the Prayanees did on day 3.
They say in the practice of Yoga one can emphasize the body, the mind or the self and hence the effort can never be fruitless. The Prayanees started their day by an early morning Yoga session which was engaged by our ex-Prayanee Dr.Jasmine Dsouza.
Then the Prayanees had a refreshing early morning walk at the Arboretum SDM, Ujire. They were briefed about the various aspects of botany and about the importance of Ayurvedic plants. The morning dew, cool zephyr and the Greenery of the Arboretum had a soothing and energizing effect on the Prayanees.
The students of SDM College, Ujire organized Indraprastha, a cultural gala through which the students delivered mind-blowing and goosebumps raising performance to entertain the Prayanees. The event included Various folk and traditional forms. They also made sure that they convey a good message through every act.
The Prayanees then went on a tour of SDM college and got to know about different branches and facilities.
Then it was time for some community activity, The Prayanees formulated their activity on the thought “A cashless future is the real goal of India’s demonization move”
Mr.Arpan Satapathy, Social Media Intern and Co-organiser of LEAD Prayana briefed the Prayanees about BHIM App, an initiative by our PM to make India go cashless.
The Prayanees later taught about the usage of the app to the people in that place, they reached 400+ people and got an extremely excellent response from them, the Event Later concluded with a “Nukkad Natak themed Drop Cash Grab App(BHIM)” at Sri Manjunatheshwara Swamy Temple, Dharmasthala.
