"A sense of satisfaction fills one’s heart when one works in the field that one likes best. All members of CNB are doing what they know best, and that brings about the difference in results. CNB is growing from being a small sapling to becoming a strong tree that gives of itself for the benefit of others."

In synchrony with the Chinmaya Mission ideal of ‘giving more than what we take’, CNB has initiated a Social Responsibility Programme, a community-based development approach through which children from the neighbouring villages are provided free training in music.
