    Dear Mr. Rathod, It was a pleasant surprise to see the article on N.T. Kelkar Cricket Tournament. My son REVANT PUNNA was adjudged as the Best Batsman of the tournament. However, his name has been mis-spelled as Revan Tunna. Hats off to VVHS Cricket team and their coach Mr. Kiran Salgaokar. I understand they have won this tournament 12 times in the past 18 years! -

    1. Mr. Ganesh. Punna, the spelling of your son has been corrected, thanks for intimating us the said error.

  6. When will the school re-open-11th or 15th?
