Telangana Government is seriously considering injecting values in younger generation before the age of 5 years, he announced. Maharashtra and Goa have done this.

He gave Ten Commandments which evolved recently for the success of the students, which include raising up from bed on their own before sun rise, maintaining personal hygiene, 100 % attendance, good listening; everyday progress; putting 100% effort; imbibing culture, involving in art, fitness and games.
Sudheer Babu, an all rounder, a sports star and actor told loosing sometimes is good. Loser learns more than winner. Winning by loosing makes one stronger.
Vinayaka Kalleetla said, we write our own plays. We don’t copy. Our themes are well researched. Our students write dialogues. Seniors train juniors. It took one month for preparation.
Organised by Abhyasa International Residential School, as part of Hemanth Utsav, an annual event, it was planned in the backdrop of US-Iran Conflict, Agitations for & against CAA & NRC
The commonality in all these conflicts is Religion, but ironically. The play conveyed that Religion was created to bring harmony & love into human lives, informed Vinayaka Kalleetla, CEO & Founder Director of Abhyasa International.
Religion, says Vianayaka Kalleetla, which is perhaps the most misused instrument in creating mistrust among people… India possesses the maximum cultural & religious diversity than any other country in the world… and it’s only here that a convergence can be found to redeem ourselves from this malady…
The 90 minutes soap opera featured the evolution of all Religions and emphasized the importance of unity among people and nations to promote peace and harmony in the society that we live.
Six hundred student of grades 1 to 12 got together showcased their artistic talents in depicting the evolution of various religions, namely Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Sikhism… through a scintillating Opera that aims to establish the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God… How do we act responsibly and take accountability for our actions forms the crux of the Opera titled : “ Unity is Divinity “ presented in 3 languages Telugu, Hindi and English. Abhyasa School always picks of contemporary and topical topics for its Hemanth Utsav to enlighten children on such issues. It is a must to be featured event. We request media to kindly depute your staff reporter/photographer and camera crew.
