HOW TO GET THERE?
The LSuC 2020 is going to be held in Gandhi Vidya Mandir, Sardarshahr, Rajasthan. .
Gandhi Vidya Mandir (GVM) was founded in 1950, on a 1200- acre piece of land, on one of the harshest and most backward terrains. Acutely prone to droughts, heat and cold waves, epidemics and other travesties of nature, GVM has striven to alleviate the acute backwardness through various permanent and adhoc programmes of education, culture, livelihood, health, and hygiene, vocations etc.
GVM is nestled like an oasis in the Thar desert, near the town of Sardarshahr in India’s north-western state of Rajasthan. It is about 300 km west of Delhi, 125 km east of Bikaner and 230 km north of Jaipur (connected by rail and road).
Here is a link to google location for GVM.
