One day her mother came and narrated her behavioral changes after coming to our Creche. She used to avoid respecting her parents and elders. Now she calls us respectfully and talks softly and gently. When she asked her “What is your name?” in English she felt much happy and proud. She appreciated me for the efforts taken in bringing up the kids properly. This touched my, heart Sankaravadivoo — Chekkarakudi — II — Thoothukudi district One day as it was very hot inside the Creche I took all the kids outside and seated them under a tree. All went out except a girl named Durga. She stood near the wall and jumping up stretching her hands up. When Tasted for the reason she told me that the fan was on. She tried to switch off the fan telling me that the fan ran wastely and to save electricity. She had tried to switch off. Her awareness in that young age inspired me alot. Ramalakhsmi — Chekkarakudi — I — Thoothukudi district Once I went to the Sivankovil in our village. There an old lady was reciting Sivapuranam. There came Sudalaimuthu studying in our Creche. He sat near her and joined with her. The grandma looked at him astonishingly and after finishing asked him who had taught him Sivapuranam so well.He told her about our Creche and the name of the teacher. She again asked him whether in Vivekananda Kendra Creche these are all taught. She had praised us in front of everybody and I was happy and proud to hear that. Shanthi — Vallioor — Tirunelvel trict During October 10th to 12th we were in Vadakankulam Balakrishna Matric Hr. Sec. School for Kendra Book sales. A teacher looking at the book “Siruvar Puththagamalai” told me that she had “Navarathri Golu’ in her house. She used to gift some plastic items for the visitors. “This year I will present this book as it has useful matter for young kids”. She purchased the book for Rs.500/-. This touched my heart. Subbulakshmi — K.Thangammalpuram — Thoothukudi district During Vijayadasami we admitted new kids for our Creche. Sreekutti was newly admitted. He was only one year and 7 months old. His three sisters studied in our Creche and their parents are much satisfied with their brought up. Those girls are studying well and keep on developing good habits and behaviors. That is why their parents admitted their young son here. I am much delighted on seeing the parent’s thoughts and confidence on Vivekananda Kendra Creche. I pray to God to bless me for doing such dedicated services. Nagalakshmi — Soorangudi - Thoothukudi district In our Creche during morning prayer I have practiced the kids to say Varuna Jepam 18 times. “Om Vam Varunaya Namaha” is that Mantra. One little kid asked me why we chant that Mantra daily. I explained him the meaning and benefits of chanting it. By God’s grace we had heavy rain that day. The boy enjoyed and uttered God has answered his prayers. His faith and happiness touched my heart Sakunthala - Ramnad — Ramnad di ict On behalf of Devar Guru Pooja held in Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar College Kamuthi, the college authorities had arranged for Thiruvilakku Pooja and invited us for conducting. Before going I informed our secretary Ayyappanji about it. He at once asked me to give a speech for 15 minutes. I hesitated how I could talk in a college function. The Principal of the College also asked me the samething when we entered there. I wondered the coincidence. I gave a speech for 15 minutes before starting the pooja. Vijayarani who had come with me appreciated my talk and all the staff members praised us for the perfect conduct of the pooja. I dedicated everything to Annaji Krishna moorthiji for their training given to us in Vivekananda Kendra.
