CHINMAYA VIJAYA” was constructed as already stated in a five acres of land generously donated by Sri Lingamaneni Bhaskara Rao and family quite away from the huzzle-buzzle of the busy Chennai-Kolkata transport corridor on NH-16. The entire area is surrounded by lush green vegetation on one side and long train track with off and on crossing trains, a totally scenic Thai-Chinese base Agri-Gold Haai Land Theme and Entertainment Park overseeing in the background – all culminates into a visual treat for any newcomer to the area.
In this backdrop predominantly seen is CHINMAYA VIJAYA located in 6 buildings spread over a sprawling campus of the 5 acres that deserve a floor-wise description for a clear understanding of the infrastructure brought up to vividly explains the amenities created for a comfortable living of the children housed therein.
At Chinmaya Vijaya we maintain clean, hygienic and well ventilated buildings. The children’s bedrooms are of dormitory style.
Gargi– This building houses children from LKG to 6th Class and one female caretaker for dormitories in each floor takes care of the children in the floor.
Mytrei– This building In ground+one floor houses in the first floor children from 7th to 9th Standard with identical living amenities and caretaker facility as above while the ground floor is equipped with computer room and games room for children
After school, the children are allowed to pursue various extracurricular activities of their own interest. Opportunities include sports, music, dance or reading books in library. The staff at Chinmaya Vijaya constantly works towards identifying the childrens’ areas of interest and provide them with all amenities thus giving them every parental care.
The weekends are for cultural activities, catching up with homework, and field trips. Physical fitness is very important and some girls are very naturally athletic. After only 10 days of practice, Miss Jhansi won a gold medal in the long jump the National Competition of Chinmaya Khel Mela!
Organic farming is done on 7 acres of land to grow vegetables, fruits, etc. Twenty-five different types of vegetables are grown in this organic farm. Excess vegetables are supplied to local NRI schools. The girls enjoy helping with planting, caring for, and harvesting what we grow.
They are happy and proud to see how their hard work pays off!
Brahmavrinda is the Senior Citizens Center on campus for elders who want to lead a life of vanaprasta, like a hermit. Six cottages have been constructed for them. Each cottage consists of a sitting room, small pantry, and bedroom with attached bath. The elders teach and guide the children regarding ethics, character, culture, and education, and the girls help them with small tasks and frequent visits. This is a kind of symbiosis, where the senior citizens and children support each other. Medical care for the resident seniors is also be provided by NRI Medical College and Hospital.
