                      St. Xavier's Colosseum - The young artists will enjoy the treat to their talents after January 2020 with the addition of a new dimension to the existing infrastructure, ie. Amphitheatre.
                      Life of our children could become paradoxical if we don't give them a platform to outshine their contemporaries in the literary world.
                      Our children would face paparazzi, be expressive to the well read scripts, groove to the high pitched music, and yet recommend to be acknowledged for their panache on stage. 
                      Looking forward to the add-on for our children. Courtesy Management!
