The founding members of KMR Foundation Mr. K. T. Mahi & Dr. Humaira Mahi shared the memories of their father with the audience, quoting his love and respect for the nation and for Sri Jawaharlal Nehru and how he was inspired to name his first son ‘Jawahar’. The audience comprised of a large group of youth from Sreenidhi

Some of the young students from Sreenidhi International School had a very engaging discussion with Mr. Guha after the talk on a book he had written on their favorite subject – Cricket! The students spiritedly argued and discussed with Mr. Guha their views on their favorite cricket personalities.It was also very interesting to see the young generation hearing and learning about Jawaharlal Nehru and his role in shaping modern India.
