Irrelevant from where I come from, an opportunity was provided by fate. More like, it was the result of the skills and hard work of my past. Destiny provided me a light in those dark, hard times. The light which is helping us bushes to grow. The light which makes the pieces of crumbled glasses to shine like a Diamond, A Light in the form of a vast Family named VAHANI.
Let's get to the Chapter Meets, where the Family members present close to the designated location associate. It is a memorable and special event with its own specialties’ like.
· Travelling is FUN – With the current life of exams and assignments, there comes this stress busting event. For some scholars it’s usually in the same town. It is held generally in big metro cities. Travelling to these cities is a thrilling experience; the excitement to explore the new cities is incomparable.
