SINCHANA- AN INTER-SCHOOL CULTURAL FIESTA (2007-2016)
“Sinchana” is a first of its kind event aimed at encouraging and promoting Kannada culture and literature among school students in Karnataka through an outstanding inter-school fest. Since the year 2006 -07, LXL Ideas, Learning Society and Akshaya Pathra Foundation have been trying their best to empower the children studying in BBMP, Government and Government Aided Schools through innovative programs, with the focus of making these children aware of the society and the role they play in its construction.
In 2016, COLOURS OF LIFE in association with LXL Ideas launched an event called COLOURS OF LIFE SINCHANA.
The primary aim of Colours of Life Sinchana was to motivate the children and provide them opportunities to express their talents. The Event focuses on increasing the Self Esteem and Self-identification of the Government School Children who rarely get opportunities to exhibit their talent on a large platform.
