This time Bharat van introduced a new activity of organizing Nagpur Book Reading Club’s (NBRC) monthly meet. NBRC held its monthly meet at Bharat van under the green canopy of chikoo trees and the theme of this meet was kept on nature. Everyone shared their knowledge about the books which they brought on nature. Dr Tejinder Singh Rawal reviewed a book “The Fall of Sparrow” by Dr. Salim Ali. A lot of books by Ruskin Bond were also discussed briefly as we all know Ruskin Bond himself is a nature lover and is known for keeping a diluted taste of nature in most of his books. Sameer Gangakhedkar read out a beautiful poetry about Baya weaver bird.
The event was conceptualized by Dr. Abheek Ghosh and supported by Abhishek Paliwal, Anurag Tiwari, Raksha Purohit, Shuchi Purohit and Bharat Nagar residents. Bharat Nagar residents have asked Nagpurkars to visit Bharatvan for morning walks and Yoga which are done daily.
