Swaranaad wishes to further extend its work by providing direction and a suitable platform to the deserving and enterprising people across varied fields. The emphasis will be on instilling self-confidence in them and achieving self-reliance, and guiding them to become the best versions of themselves.
About Mangala Nath
Mangala Nath is the founder-trustee of Swaranaad and the prime source of strength behind Nayi Roshni. She has been associated with the Happy Home School of the Blind for over 25 years and has worked closely with the visually-challenged students, reading out books to avid listeners, teaching them History and English, as also music and singing. She recognized in them great potential to excel in various fields such as poetry, elocution, dance, Malkhamb, debating, playing musical instruments and singing. It was then that she decided to combine her lifelong passion for music with her will to provide a strong platform for the deserving visually-challenged singers and musicians to present their musical skills to the world.
As the chief mentor of Nayi Roshni, Mangala Nath works with loving dedication and keen commitment towards the inclusion of the visually-impaired in the mainstream society via music – which plays a significant role in making their lives more joyous and meaningful. She enjoys the trust and confidence of her group of very talented singers and musicians, many of them her ex-students, who regard her as the guiding light of Nayi Roshni.
