Feedback from Volunteers:
– I enjoyed the cultural event very much. We went to SGS Ashrama and visited the temple, shuka vana as well as a meditation Center. I learned a lot more about Birds and Indian culture by visiting these places with someone who could explain and answer my questions. I especially liked to have lunch. Thanks to FSL for the great visit and hope others can make the same experience.
