Indian National Youth Camp – Day 2


24th May 2014

I happened to be running into the room to hunt for one of my campers when I saw Narmada from Chennai writing a log. I asked her if she writes every day and If I could translate her  thoughts for this blog.

A little about Narmada, She is in the 12th standard. She is part of Pudiyador, an organisation that engages under privileged kids in different skills (academic and extra curricular) by hosting them in after-school activities year long. She’s been associated with Pudiyador for 8 years now and she credits the organisation for helping her study better and improving her educational abilities. The organisation is run by one of our National Youth Camp’s Program Director Manickam Narayanan, popularly known in India Ultimate as Manix or Baasha Bhai, along with the support of many others.
