The Event Management was looked after by Smt. Gayatri Ramaswamy, Smt. Rama Rajagopalan, Mr.Kannan and Mr. Govind. The team had nominated different members as coordinators for each programme. The Event Management Team designed the programme systematically. Each coordinator voluntarily took the responsibility of every Job, starting from registration up to Prize distribution of their respective programme. We had invited special judges for each programme who are professionals in the respective field. Pre Lunch celebration consisted of Drawing Competition and Thiruppavai sadas. It was exclusively for Kids. Post Lunch celebration was entirely for Ladies with Kolam (Rangoli) and Kummi Dance competition. The festival started with Welcome address by Sri R.Vedantham followed by prayer song by Kumari Janany Govind, Kumari Srinidhi Govind and Kumari Chenchulakshmi Vasudevan. First on the agenda was Drawing. More than 25 Kids aged from 4 to 16, participated in the competition. Three different groups were allocated according to age and were provided different topics.

Their talent was highly appreciated by the Jurists and were awarded accordingly. Thiruppavai sadas was the thunderous one. Every kid surprised the Jurists and audience by narrating the meaning very fluently. Sri U.Ve. Parthasarathy Iyengar of Koparpairne, Sri.U.Ve.Saranathachariar and Smt.Prabha Seenesh were the Judges.

Every participants surprised the Judges with their unimaginable talent and were explaining the Meanings of Thiruppavai without any stage fear. The Jurists were of the view that it is difficult to distinguish them. Hence we understood distributed the prizes to all the kids uniformly.
