Given the uncertainty around the Covid pandemic and the Delta variant that is projected to affect a lot more people due to its transmissible nature, many people have expressed their concerns about the kids attending face to face classes more so since kids under 12 are not vaccinated yet.

After considering many factors around the current situation, the Bala Vihar team has decided to take the classes online for the coming semester. We will monitor the situation closely and keep you informed about our future course of action. We are looking forward to in-person classes at our new ashram when the situation permits.
