It was indeed a special day for Deepalaya students as they played the match with the students of the Uppingham School UK. It was indeed a friendly match but the excitement was not less than what the world witnesses at the IPL start. The Teams comprised of players in the age group of 15-18 years and was played at the Jamia Hamdard Ground, Delhi.
“Some girls think Menstruation is a disease they are suffering from and that it has no cure.” says Saroj, a trainer with the Unicharm ( Japan) sponsored Menarche Education Program at Deepalaya.
