Adventure camp brings out the best

“A child must learn to struggle in life to achieve anything. Such experiences ingrained through personality development camps in them, will give them practical experience to struggle, face debacles squarely and move on in life,” stated Dr Manoj Kumar Sharma, Superintendent of Police (Rural), while addressing The Hitavada Twinkle Club members participating in the Bhonsla Military School’s personality development camp held at Chakki Khapa. The camp, that commenced on May 2, concluded on May 11 and had a record number of 342 participants, in which there were 80 girls. Dr Sharma was the chief guest on the concluding day’s programme of the camp. Prominently present on the occasion, besides Dr Manoj Kumar Sharma, were Commandant Air Cmdre (Retd) D D Mandpe YSM, Secretary BMS Shailesh Joglekar, Tarun Patel, Aasawari Shenolikar, Magazine Editor of The Hitavada and Head Master BMS Lalit Joshi. Dr Sharma, while addressing the gathering appealed to parents to encourage children to participate in such camps, as they teach important disciplines in an environment away from home, that are eye-opening for the kids. He urged them to help develop the habit of writing diaries amongst children, as it is very useful in the long run for them to confide in and as a close friend to refer to. Air Cmdre (Retd) D D Mandpe, Commandant presented his report of the camp in which he praised the instructors and staff for their excellent support and hard work put in, in making the camp successful. “Inspite of gruelling heat, there was never a dull moment nor did any child suffer from exhaustion,” he averred. He stated that the campers were given delicious food, and made comfortable. Air Cmdre Mandpe thanked The Hitavada and its Magazine Editor Aasawari Shenolikar in particular for their staunch support. In the concluding programme, presented by the campers, there were demo’s of Military style attack, obstacle crossing, horse-riding and aero-modelling. A brief cultural programme was held at the Swimming pool that comprised impressive dances, like Ganesh and Durga Vandana, Des Mera Rangila and Rang De Basanti Chola colourfully choreographed by Chandu Dehankar and impressively performed by Twinkle Club members (boys and girls). Prizes were awarded to Himanshu Jain and Pranjali Ashtikar for horse-riding, Parvez Mohammed and Avni Airan for shooting, Jahanvi Verma and Sujal Panpalia for Being Best in Obstacles, Sandhini Peshkar and Samar Shah as Bindhast Girl and Boy and Samar Shah and Saranya Jaiswal as best cadets.

Desserts Master Class enjoys huge success!

By Aasawari Shenolikar Some were apprehensive when they stepped inside the huge hall where tables were set, induction cooktops were on and sparkling sets of utensils and cutlery was neatly placed.

By Aasawari Shenolikar Some were apprehensive when they stepped inside the huge hall where tables were set, induction cooktops were on and sparkling sets of utensils and cutlery was neatly placed. Others sauntered in with a sprightly step. But after three hours, when they all left the premises of Hotel Centre Point, they left with a huge grin and a bag full of delicious desserts that they had prepared. All the action happened at The Hitavada Twinkle Club’s first of it’s kind event the Dessert Master Class where kids in the age group of 10 to 16 participated in a workshop aimed at teaching them the basics of pastry, chocolates and making their own cake. Under the able guidance and strict eye of Chef Kunal Arolkar, a pastry chef with Michelin exposure and ten years of active experience in the food industry, hundreds of children in two batches, learnt how to prepare mouth watering, lip smacking desserts. It was good to see that there was a fair smattering of boys also who tried their hand on the kitchen tops. Of them, a few were regularly cooking at home and so didn’t have any problem holding the spoon and stirring the contents in the pot. For others, even this simple chore assumed gargantuan proportion. Once Chef Kunal started delivering the instructions, each one listened in rapt attention and followed his directives. And such was the dedication and passion of the kids in both the batches that each recipe turned out just perfect. The strawberry jelly, the mango pannacotta and the three-layered sponge that the kids decorated with chocolate flakes and layered with whipped cream and chocolate ganache were easy to make and super delicious. Each participant got to take home portions of the recipes cooked by him. Chef Kunal who has a lot of experience in the Food & Beverage industry gave tips on pastry cooking and decorating cakes. His lively interactive session with the kids helped them become Master Chefs in the Master Class, and the same will continue in tomorrow’s batches when the kids wield knives and spatulas, piping bags and egg beaters where they will try their hand at something very delicious. Tauby Bhagwaghar who is known for her Sinful Delights was present on the occasion and lent a helping hand wherever needed. Tauby’s are the co-sponsors for the event. The chocolate is provided by Goldsmith Food Products. And the hospitality is being provided by Hotel Centre Point. Dinshaws made the conclusion of the workshop sweeter when they gave lips-smacking chocolate ice cream to one and all. Archana Purohit, Director of The Hitavada, Vijay Phanshikar Editor, Samir Wankhede Advertising Manager and others from The Hitavada worked hard and ensured that the event was a mega success!
