In previous centuries, benefactors invested in the universities that my children and I studied at and benefited from. Now, our family is investing in the OCHS to give our grandchildren and their grandchildren the opportunity to study and benefit from this unique centre. We are certain that the future of India’s cultural traditions is in safe hands at the OCHS.
