Silver Oaks International School helps the underprivileged through its ‘Silver Oaks Street Store’ initiative!



·       School’s initiative to bridge the gap between the haves and have-nots 

·       To instil the values of caring and sharing among the students from a young age 

·       Over 80,000 utility items collected by students & 1800 beneficiaries picked up items   

·       Owning & cherishing the items, brought smiles on the faces of the underprivileged


Hyderabad, September 24th, 2023: Silver Oaks International School – a 22-year-old institution, nurturing both character and competence with an innovative pedagogy and an indigenous research-led curriculum; hosted a unique charitable pop-up event - Silver Oaks Street Store, to provide succour to the underprivileged, at Silver Oaks International Schools, Bachupally and Beeramguda in Hyderabad; today.


As part of the initiative, the students of Silver Oaks International Schools collected eighty thousand unused and redundant articles, books, toys, clothes, school bags, shoes and other utility items in usable condition, from their homes and that of their relatives and friends. Good Samaritans from the community too pitched in by contributing their bit to the noble initiative. Eighteen hundred kids and elders from deprived sections of the society visited the schools and picked the items of utility for their personal or family use.


The ’Silver Oaks Street Store’ initiative instils values of caring and sharing amongst the students of the School at a young age, helping them grow into compassionate and socially responsible individuals, who actively contribute to the well-being of all communities. While it’s also a means to clear the clutter at home, making it more airy, liveable and healthy, the biggest takeaway for the kids is building a strong character and imbibe good habits, to become a responsible individual. The initiative brightened up and brought smiles on the faces of underprivileged, in owning and cherishing the items they desired.


The Street Store was launched under the school’s major initiative ‘Me and My Country, We Grow Together’ which hosts a plethora of social responsibility activities throughout the year. Another such event under the umbrella initiative is ‘Coins For The Country’ where the students have raised about Rs. 1,50,00,000 and contributed it to the education of less fortunate children in rural areas. The primary goal of ‘Silver Oaks Street Store’ is to bridge the socio-economic divide by enabling able families to directly support the less fortunate. Through this activity, articles of utility were made available for the underprivileged to choose across all the four campuses of Silver Oaks International Schools in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam, today.


At Silver Oaks International School, the mission extends beyond academic excellence; it aims to nurture Character Before Competence. Encouraging children to embrace the 'art of giving' from a young age is integral to this mission, as it instils a sense of social responsibility that becomes an intuitive practice.

Maaya Chesave song in Devil – A ‘blend of vintage music and setting’

In the movie Devil, "Maaya Chesave” song beautifully portrays the journey of love between the hero (Kalyanram) and the heroine (Samyuktha Menon).

The film is set in the 1940s during the Madras Presidency era. To capture the period-romance feel, director-producer Abhishek Nama chose traditional South Indian houses and palatial mansions like Kanadukathan Palace (at Karaikudi), to create an authentic backdrop for the romance to unfold.

Music too played an important role in elevating the cinematic experience. Abhishek Nama and composer Harshavardhan Rameshwar have imported unique vintage music instruments to capture the essence of orchestration in the period romance.

Drums and percussions - African Djembe from South Africa, Bongo, Djembe, and Duff drums from Malaysia, Chinese Mouth Organ, Darbuka, and Ocean Percussion from Dubai, Fiber Congo drums from Singapore, Hourglass-shaped talking drum from West Africa, among many. These soundscapes helped to transport the audience back to the bygone era thereby complementing the narrative of the film.

Klin Kaara’s first Ganesh Chaturthi with parents Ram Charan and Upasana

Ram was seen in Ayyappa Mala while Upasana looked resplendent in a traditional sari for what is surely the biggest milestone for them, Klin Kaara's entry to the Konidela house after spending 3 months with her maternal grandparents

Global star Ram Charan and his elegant wife, Upasana Kamineni Konidela recently took to Instagram to share a glimpse of their joyous Ganesh Chaturthi celebration with their sweet family. The heartwarming pictures capture the essence of their festive spirit as they marked their first Ganesh festival with their daughter, Klin Kaara.

Ram Charan and Upasana’s daughter, Klin Kaara Konidela, entered the KONIDELA House after spending 3 months with her maternal grandparents Shobana & Anil Kamineni.

The 3-month-old adorable Klin Kaara received a warm spiritual welcome from her father, Ramcharan Konidela, and grandparents, Surekha & Chiranjeevi Konidela. Young Veda Pandit students from Chinna Jeeyar Swamy Varu Ashram added an ethereal touch by chanting sacred mantras as Lord Ganesh and Klin Kaara entered the KONIDELA House on this special occasion.

In the photos, the entire family can be seen radiating pure joy as they come together to celebrate this auspicious occasion. The decorations were exquisite, with a magnificent idol of Lord Ganesh taking the center stage. The attention to detail in the decor showcased their dedication to making this festival truly special.

One striking element in the pictures is Ram Charan's attire. Before any important occasion, Ram has always maintained the ritual of Ayyappa Mala such as before RRR Release and even the nomination at the Oscars, hence it is heartwaming to see that Ram was once again in the humble black kurta and mala given that this is a huge milestone for him as a father to the heartbeat of the nation

This year's celebration holds a special place in Ram Charan's heart as it marks the first Ganesh Chaturthi after welcoming their daughter, Klin Kaara, earlier in the year. In the pictures, his wife, Upasana Kamineni Konidela, can be seen lovingly holding Klin in her arms, adding an extra layer of warmth and happiness to the festivities.

Ram Charan and Upasana accompanied these heartwarming pictures with a thoughtful caption on their social media stating that, “Happy Vinayaka Chavithi to all! With the blessings of Lord Vigneshwara, I pray that all the problems will be removed from the lives and good luck will come to everyone! This time is special... Celebrating the first Ganesh Chavithi with little 'Klin Kaara.' Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to ALL! Celebrating the First Festival with the little 'Klin Kaara' this year!"

As we await Ram Charan’s upcoming movie ‘Game Changer’, Ram Charan's Ganesh Chaturthi celebration with his family reminds us of the importance of cherishing our traditions and creating memorable moments with loved ones during special occasions.
