I have seen the girls from UKG upwards, and so proud of what they are becoming, says Coach Shiva. There’s been a lot of growth in this field, but not enough infrastructure or facilities to accommodate. We now have 4 branches spearheaded by Shukla Bose Ma’am, Ravi Babu, Saravana, Gopal – we work hard to offer the best opportunities for the children. Nice work and all our best to you, Coach Shiva and team!
