Don't just invest on the child, also invest in the child. 'Investment on' gives outer prosperity. 'Investment in' ensures inner
unfoldment and lasting prosperity. True education is 'investment on' the child complemented with 'investment in' the child.

Children were constantly in Swami Chinmayananda’s thoughts. The Chinmaya Mission Magazine, Balvihar was created in order to link Bala Vihars all over India and the world so that the children could, through its pages, share common bonds of love, learning and laughter. In his message for the inaugural issue of the Balvihar magazine, Swami Chinmayananda wrote, “We shall, through this journal, build bridges of love and understanding between children everywhere, and we shall learn to create a greater world out of what our parents have given us now.” Since then, Balvihar has grown over the years to become a prominent and acclaimed children's international monthly magazine. With its full-colour presentation, appealing design and inspiring messages and stories, it is attempting to re-inculcate the reading habit in children all over the world.

The Balvihar magazine:

Writing for a children’s magazine is exciting. I realised that being a child has nothing to do with chronological age. Freshness of approach, a sense of wonder, a sense of fun - that’s what childhood is all about. - Bharati Sukhatankar, Editorial Advisor of Balvihar Balvihar has been serving children, parents, and grandparents for over 38 years. It's current worldwide circulation is over 40,000. June 2013 was a milestone in the magazine’s history
