    Congratulations and best wishes to Mr. Anand Lobo and his group for coming up with a Summer Camp project in Bahrain for the benefit of those children who are enjoying thier school holidays in the midst of their parents. Its always nice to keep the children within your own reach during the school holiday season so that the parents' mind is at peace while the children are equally safe and happy.

    Children go so fast - before you know they are grown up and gone for College or elsewhere.Make the best use of children while they are young and around. What a marvellous idea to keep the children occupied with the Camp activities in a safe environemnt added with education, fun and entertainment. Bahrain has always been a "cradle of civilization" in the Gulf region, and some of the activities that you witness in Bahrain created by the Indians have always been outsanding that brings added credit to the community as well as India. Best of luck, as always.
