“Unity in diversity-these are not just merely words but something that are highly applicable to a country like India that is incredibly rich in culture and heritage. The warmth in the relations and euphoria in celebrations make the country stand out distinctively in the global fraternity. During their [Students of Sunbeam School, Varuna] stay at RKK they were exposed to the vibrant, colourful and architectural beauty of Jodhpur. It included visit to sand dunes of Osian, Mandore garden, Mehrangarh fort and Umaid Palace. The shopping spree and local food was also much enjoyed by them. They attended various art and craft activities, had friendly matches and barazza sessions. Ever-smiling and courteous Sunbeam Students welcomed them [Students of RKKGPS] in the city of spiritual capital of education. Formal interaction with Sunbeam Principal and slide show on Varanasi added to their pry to know more about this city of holy rivers.”
