About Suruchi kendra
Centre for Social & Cultural Activities – Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit.
“Indian culture is a living force. It absorbs alien elements when necessary and reorients them into a new pattern of homogeneous richness. Thus it becomes a tremendous force of power and beauty which has made us what we are in the world and will make us what we want to be in the world of tomorrow.”
