Besides her struggle she got 25 tokens and came for the pooja with 25 ladies. She participated as ever and sang the songs standing near the wall for support. I was impressed by her will power and service mindedness. Srimathi - Kannambivilai — Kanyakumari district Kavitha was a student in our Creche in 1997. Now she raised to the level of Sub- collector. Before the UPSC Exam her father came to me and asked me to pray for her. When she was selected he came with sweets and expressed his happiness and gratitude. His remembrance and faith in us had impressed me a lot. Reginal — Mangavilai — Kanyakumari district attended the Padha Pooja held in Mangavilai Creche. 35 kids and parents participated. Sister Leela chanting the Mantra followed by the parents, the kids did Padha Pooja to their parents with love and dedication.

They told me about the Jeyanthi Vizha celebrated in my absence. Each one enacted what they had staged on that day. I couldn’t control myself and tears rolled down on seeing the love and affection shown by the kids. After going home they insisted their parents to come and see me with fruits.
