Making good use of their long winter vacation, over 80 children, teenagers and youths of the BAPS center in Nairobi prepared to perform 'Sanskrutik Virasat' - a cultural presentation inspiring traditional values and good character.

The first performance on 7 January 2006 was attended by principals and staff from ten schools and BAPS devotees.

The second performance was 21 January 2006, in which over 250 pupils and their parents from four schools attended.

The third, and final performance was on 28 January 2006 in the presence of the Indian High Commissioner, H. E. Surendra Kumar, representatives of 70 Indian organizations, 400 children and 700 well-wishers.

Following these performances, the Hindu Foundation held an essay competition for Nairobi school children on the subject 'Our Ideal Children'.

As a result of these performances, many children were inspired to undertake vows of regular study, daily prayer, no swearing, discretion in watching TV, no stealing and no lying.
