|Upasanasthal at New Town|
We started initially for three months. At Upasanasthal, near Immersion Ghat Picnic Spot. On Saturdays and Sundays. Trainer is Ms Aditi De, a resident of New Town. The three months were free and NKDA paid the trainer's honorarium.
After 3 months, participants agreed to share the cost of the trainer. We continued for another 6 months. Each participant paid Rs 100 pm. On an average there are 50 participants. Classes start at 6 am on Saturdays and Sundays.
The 3 month period will be over this month. On popular request, we have decided to extend the classes to another 6 months @ Rs 150 pm so that not only the trainer's cost but also electricity and cleaning charges. So it is now fully viable. We are glad to continue to provide a service that is valued by the residents of New Town on a self-sustaining model basis.
