To the University Afterschool!

There is a lot of talk about the need for Universities to open up their doors to the community. Kudos to the University of Hyderabad for doing so!

The Sarojini Naidu School of Arts and Communication now has a new building on the University of Hyderabad campus at Gachibowli. A week-long cultural fiesta was organized (March 13-19) on the occasion by the University. The best part - it was open to the public. I attended the final day of the festival - a wonderful music and dance performance by students from the Mahasarakham University, Thailand.

If you live around Gachibowli, Kondapur, Miyapur, BHEL... keep an eye out for happenings at the University of Hyderabad - they can make a wonderful afterschool learning opportunity. You can check out their website for upcoming events.
