Last year we had supported a student Pramila for her B.Com Education. She continues to work at Queens Land on weekends earning Rs.100 and supporting her family. This student was referred to us by Vasantham madam. We also have supported another student Sangeetha who works with Pramila and also doing the same course. We have given a check for Rs.8000 [ 4000rs each] through Vasantham madam.
The students promised to return back the money in 4 months time. Once done, we would be using the amount for other projects. Attached the project reports and student information details.

As already announced in the group, Golden Jubilee issue of ezine is featuring India Sudar, Dream India and Helping Minds. We are also honouring these three organisations in a simple function to be held at Vinobha Hall, Thakkar Bapa Vidyalaya, Venkatanarayana Road, T Nagar, Chennai on Saturday the 1st May 2010.
Many eminent people are joining this event. I have already circulated the invitation through group also.
The programme starts sharp at 10 am. I will be happy if these three organisations' representatives report at the venue before 9.30 am. We will have Mr T S Krishnamurthy, Mr N Gopalaswami, Mr Hansraj MP and Mr Ramasubbu MP on the stage. After your team receives the honour there, the anchor will ask your team to share your feelings. One of you can speak for two minutes maximum.
We are also trying to get Dr Kalam to speak to the audience during the course of the function. This is yet to be confirmed.
Looking forward to meeting you all during the function
I take great pleasure in sharing this news with you. One of our friends Mozhiarasi contacted me sometime back through Mani and expressed her desire to start classes at her village near Thirukovilur.
I happened to discuss with Mozhi today after long time and learned that Mozhi has started taking informal classes for the children near her house. These children are currently coming to her house during weekends for clarifying their doubts.
We will be starting formal classes at the school premises from next academic year. Mozhi is in the process of organizing all this. A few of friends and I, we would also visit the place to kick off the first class ain the next two months.
I am sure this new chapter of DI will serve many more kids. Please join me in wishing Mozhi all the very best.
