C. N. Kalaniketan was established in 1981 with a view to develop it into a full-fledged music school. It however remained Indumatiben’s unfulfilled dream.
It is perhaps the only institute offering gayan, vadan and nritya under one umbrella. The objective of the Centre is to instill in students appreciation for the classical art forms and also pursue it to the best of their abilities. Students of seven years and above can seek admission to these classes. The approach of the curriculum is to make students aware about Indian Classical music and equip them with the necessary a skill set and knowledge in their chosen field.
The Centre functions out of Indumatiben’s Chandan bungalow, it comes alive in evening after (school and) with students participating in its various classes namely, vocal, harmonium, table and dance. About 200 students learn different arts like harmonium, tabla, vocal and dance from renowned faculties. Students also get advantage of music workshops and concerts by eminent artists organized at regular intervals. Kalaniketan organizes its annual programme in order for its students to showcase their talent and hard work done during year. The effort is not only to make them good students of music but also make them good human beings.

Message from the Coordinator
Music is the greatest stress buster. Swara (musical note) is the one of the surest way to reach God. At C. N. Kalaniketan, students are taught to adopt the Swara and shabda (literary) as a form of worship to the higher being, thereby sensitizing them towards the rich cultural heritage.
