The classical garden of KalaDalan bears fruit!

The objective of Late Madhavrao Shende Memorial Trust is to impart training in clasical dance, music and artforms to rural children.

KalaDalan is its ambitious and praoactive step in that direction.

Rural masses, unlike urban population, do not have access to quality education and exposure to classical artforms. The villages in India have a tremendous untapped potential which fades away in oblivion, due to lack of opportunities.

KalaDalan is our way of giving back to the masses where it matters more. The Trust through this institute nurtures and hones the skills of this neglected set of population.

The garden of human skilled activity of the institution has started bearing fruits. One such prodigy is Kumari Janhavi Mane from Rahimatpur. A multitalented child, she studies in standard XI and sharpens her skills at the Trust’s vintage auditorium, which houses KalaDalan.

Janhavi Mane being felicitated

She is adept at one-act play, web series, advertising and Bharatnatyam. It is not just the intellectual artforms that she has grown profound in, but also martial arts. She is Black belt in Taekwondo, winning 7 silver medals at state level and one National level Gold!

Her mother Madhumati Mane is the coordinator of cultural activities of the Trust and KalaDalan. She was a disciple of Late Madhavrao Shende, who had the vision of imparting top quality classical and art education to non urban areas.

The rise of Janhavi Mane is a living tribute to the late son of Rahimatpur who dedicated his life to the service of classical music and artforms.

It is the hidden gems in rural areas that we wish to hone, polish and showcase to the world. All ambitious and willing children are welcome to be a part of the journey and rise above their circumstances and limited opportunities under KalaDalan – the courtyard of Music and Arts.
