Mysore/Mysuru: Minister for Primary and Secondary Education B.C. Nagesh visited the temporary Tent School opened for the children of Mahouts and Kavadis who are participating in the Dasara festivities, in the Palace premises and also interacted with the children on Thursday.
The Minister, who was in Mysuru to participate in Makkala Dasara, visited the Tent School and sought information from the teachers.
The children of Mahouts and Kavadis exhibited their singing and dance talents.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister Nagesh said that these children are smart, intelligent and are keen to learn more.
“God has given them special power. They mix freely with strangers without any hesitation and talk with them openly. In their short stay at this temporary school, they have learnt many things. Their teachers have also earned the love of these children and taught them well. School children from 1std. to 9 std. are being taught here. If these students are taught by taking special interest, I am sure that they can excel at all levels,” added Nagesh.
A set of utensils needed to cook food, given by service organisations like Rotary Central Mysore and Rotary Midtown, was distributed to the families of Mahouts and Kavadis by Minister Nagesh.
