The former Balasevika of Adaichani Balwadi was there. I came to know that she kept her aged parents with her and cared them intensely. She had celebrated the Ashtabandhan ( 80th birth Anniversary) by proper pooja and Hoamam. Myself and some of our Kendra sisters attended the function. Another thing was that she had sent her only son to study Sastra in Omandhur. She admitted Vivekananda Kendra only gave her the courage and good intention. She was once a student in my religious class. Really I was much proud of her. S.Jeyalakshmi — Samugarengapuram - Tirunelveli district Madhushree is studying in our Creche. I instructed all the kids to get blessed by sashtanga namaskaram to the parents. One day Madhushree had forgotten this and while coming along the road she asked her mother to stand in front of her and fell on her foot. Her mother proudly told me this I was also much impressed. ‘ijayalakshmi — Pudhugramam - Tirunclvcli district Praveena is a kid in our Creche. Her mother is dumb. She has the defect of telling out her instinct of passing urine or motion. Initially her grandfather approached Govt. Balwadi nearby for admission They rejected. Then he came to us with much hesitation. We admitted her and paid special attention. Within a week she had improved a bit. Her dumb mother came and happily admitted her change with gestures. We also felt happy and increased our care. Lecla Rajakani— Ponnagaram - Ramnad district During this academic year (2018) 20 children left our Creche for Std — I. They joined in Ponnagaram Panchayat Union Ele. School. The Headmaster Thiru.Kottaichami felt much happy on this lump admission as they had never admitted 20 altogether. He also thanked us and proudly told me that our kids are well trained and much disciplined. Even their VIII Students are not so matured as our I Std children. I was proud and happy on hearing this. ‘J.Pandimcena — Uchinatham — Ramnad district Sujith is studying in our Creche. Her mother gave birth to a girl baby. Being 3 years old boy he asked their parents to gave sweets to all who are in our Creche. Her parents felt much happy on his awareness of sharing his happiness with others. They fetched him to the class with sweets. All the children sang birthday song and enjoyed it. V.Somasundari — Chekkarakudi— I — Thoothukukdi district ‘This ycar a girl named Mahesh joined our Creche. Last year she studied in Govt. Anganvadi. Once her mother came and told me that she never brushed before taking coffee. But after coming here she brushed after getting up and put Viboothi and then only asked for coffee. Her change and behavior made her happy. I am also proud of it. M.Nagalakshmi — Soorangudi— Thoothukudi district Malini a 3 years old child is in our Creche. When her parents go to the temple with her she sings Bhajan songs while going round the temple. All those who are in the temple listen to her.
