In June I posted the story of Aniket. Here's a recent update on his progress -

Aniket’s  favourate subject is Hindi.  Recently he appeared for quarterly examination, conducted by his school and got very good marks.  His class teacher, Mrs. Kharde says now Aniket is very confident and is doing well.

Aniket and his friends recently organised the Ganesh festival for which they brought a statue.  They also organised different game competitions such as Kho-Kho, Kabbadi etc.  In the meanwhile, he also took the opportunity to visit Mumbai, with his relative, and had a great experience of seeing Mumbai’s Ganesh festival.  He was very much impressed by seeing the huge Ganesh statues and decorations. 

Aniket regularly  attends Child Parliament meetings.  In a few days they are going to conduct  election of their Child Parliament. Lots of the children are now busy preparing for the election. 

Aniket still likess to play on his bicycle very much.  He many times requesst his father to take him for bike rides. His father helps motivate him to finish his schoolwork with the promise of a bike ride!  He also likes to look after his goats.  His family owns two female goats named  Ekadashi and Chandani.  He also loves to help his mother in her daily work.
