Last weekend we took ISC (India Sponsorship Committee) children to Shivneri Fort under the ACE program.

There were two reasons to take these childrens for outing because they have not came out of there place except going to local school. The second reason was to corelate the history topics with the place where actually that history happened.

To each Indian Sivaji is an indomitable spirit and he is the nucleus of the Maratha history. Near to the fort is Nane ghat to give a great view of Konkan Plateau and natural scenery.
