Lights flashed bright against the evanescing sunlight, sending a message to all the skies above. Cameras rolled furiously in an attempt to keep up with the pace


Young Authors

Showcases some of our young writers and thier writing. At Manthan creative writing starts very early, while the first couple of years of Kindergarten is more to do with developing language skills of listening and speaking, from grade 1 the focus shifts to reading and writing. Children are encouraged to write at every point and they are given not just inspiration but various devices to structure and articulate their thoughts.

Poetic Minds

The poems published here are collected from regular class room assessments of the children done during the year. Its tough to do justice to all and pick the best from thousands of such works, the effort was more to present a sample of children's works rather that select the best. It still gives a glimpse into our young poets and how they use words to express their feelings, emotions and ideas.

Book Reviews

Children are encouraged not just to read a good book but to discuss, analyse and understand it. Book review gives our children an opportunity to present their thoughts on what they see as the essence of the book..

Laugh Aloud

While school is as much about studies it is also about having fun doing so.. here our children take a dig at themselves and their teachers for some fun times.


In Spotlight our children interviewers interview various people at Manthan to understand what motivates them.

Inspiration Corner

Our Head of the Insitution, Ramakrishna Reddy shares the literary pieces that have inspired him over the years and that are of imense relevance to parents today.
