It is said in a Sanskrut dictum that a man without the taste of fine arts is a beast. Having tasted the all pervading nectar of beauty in Nature, some gave it a tune, some gave dance, some of them gave it a shape using words while some tried to reflect it with their lines and strokes. The eyes of children contain billions of wonders. We need to facilitate them only to bring them out.
Vidyamandir has always aimed at getting an all round development of the students and education of art is required for that.
