The Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Children's Forum in the presence of Pramukh Swami Maharaj was celebrated by the UK Bal Mandal in glorious and traditional fashion.

For the last year and a half, planning, preparation and training had commenced with great enthusiasm nationwide. Boys and girls aged between 6 to 14 were nurtured in speech making, story telling, parayan, nirupan, singing and playing musical instruments.
Additionally, the girls were taught the skills of traditional Indian cooking.

Course manuals were prepared for the various skills and were delivered by professional tutors in an intensive 10-week course. The courses were run in three different locations to provide easy access for children all over the UK. All participants gained invaluable and precious skills.

The project ended in a grand and spectacular assembly in the presence of Swamishri. Some 80 balaks participated in presenting their newly-learnt skills and talents.

In his blessings, Swamishri assured the audience that Shreeji Maharaj and Yogiji Maharaj were very happy with the efforts and skills displayed by the balaks and blessed the children with strength to continue their all-round development.
