Mrs Narendran was joined by Mrs Deshpande, Mrs Patnaik along with Mrs Rosalie Mishra, Secretary (VSN), several volunteers and officials of CSR department, on a visit to the adopted village of Panchananpur.

Mrs Narendran inaugurated the newly constructed boundary wall of Panchananpur UP High School, a center of education for nearby children. She witnessed a rural medical camp nearby, conducted regularly as a part of VSN health initiative for the rural poor. The guests planted banana saplings in a cultivation plot, along with villagers.
