NGO Sevalaya’s administrative office based at Keshava Perumal West Street, Mylapore is organising the celebrations of Mahakavi Bharatiyar’s birth anniversary today.
Sevalaya had conducted a state-level exam on Bharatiyar and the winners are being felicitated today. The prize distribution ceremony of Bharathi Day is taking place at the school premises in Kasuva village, near Tiruninravur.
The Maha Kavi Bharathiyar Hr. Sec. School has been selected as one of the top 20 schools in India (out of 540 schools in 19 states) that participated in this year’s ‘Design for Change’ contest – a global movement encouraging children to be leaders of change.
Sevalaya’s activities include running schools for underprivileged children, a senior citizen home, and a goshala and the NGO’s ideals are based on the teachings of Swami Vivekananda, poet Bharatiyar and Mahatma Gandhi. More details can be found on the website: www.sevalaya.org.
