India has gifted two school buses to Nalanda Uccho Bidyalaya, a school run by Chhayanaut.

The school buses will facilitate the school management and Chhayanaut to ease the travel routine of their students.

“Chhayanaut has through its dedication and hard work kept Bangladesh’s Bengali heritage alive over the last several decades,” the High Commissioner said.

“By practicing, promoting and training generations of artists, Chhayanaut has deeply impacted Bangladeshi society and its value system. We cherish our friendship with Chhayanaut and are privileged to support them,” she said.
