Ranade was born on 19 November 1914 in Timtala, Amravati district in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. The teachings of Swami Vivekananda deeply influenced Ranade. Eknathji Ranade was a man with a mission and to celebrate his birth anniversary we were enlightened by his life journey by Soma Bhatt. Didi in the morning assembly.
Every year Shadhna Divas is celebrated in all our Vidyalayas under VKSPV and all our students always find new ways to show tribute to Mananiya Eknath Ji. This year students from Class VI to IX presented skits in front of us from the life of Eknathji. All four groups tried their best to show us the best of Eknath Ji and the presentation was just beautiful and wonderful. All of us enjoyed the presentation by the students and in the future, we will be continuing with the skills to present more from the life of our past heroes.
