Kalpapuri

Kalpapuri (related with children art and psychology): Santaran feels the world of children art is based on supernatural things or objects. But it is observed that nowadays children are getting trained like as aged persons, which creates negative effects on children psychology. To develop the healthy relationship between Bengali and Pahari (of hill areas) children for inspiring a generation of artistic values, Santaran runs this research based program in Alikadam of Bandarbans district. Santaran has started this permanent program on 21st February of 2009 Participants of this program are belonging to the age-group 6 to 12 who will reach their 16 to 22 after a decade, and hopefully they will lead the backward generations of this area in future.
