Balanandam at Hyderabad (1956 - 2008) - Page 2

Timeline of Achievements and Events

Jawahar Balbhavan

The year 1965 was again an eventful year. It was during this year that the Government of Andhra Pradesh, inspired by our activities thought of opening a recreational centre on a government level. Our founders were invited to submit plans and a blue print for such a centre. The present Jawahar Balbhavan in the Public Garden was the outcome of those plans.

Decennial Celebrations

In 1966 during Dasara, Decennial Celebrations of our sangham at Hyderabad were celebrated with great enthusiasm. A souvenir, “10 years of Balanandam at Hyderabad” was released on this occasion.

Balanandam Building and Hall

In recognition of the services of our sangham in promoting the cultural and recreational activities for children, the Government of Andhra Pradesh was pleased to grant a sum of over Rs.17, 500/ for the outright purchase of the building at Narayanaguda from the Housing board. Later a mini theatre was constructed with the help of a grant from A.P. Welfare Board. The Balanandam Hall has since become a live centre of children’s cultural activities in twin cities.

Film Club

The members of our sangham had the pleasure of participating in the film “Sudigundalu” of Chakravarthy Chitra in a dance ballet. There were scores of other films where our members acted as child artists. Balanandam has become a source to all well known film producers to find the best talent in children.  16mm shows have become a regular monthly feature at Balanandam.
