On April 17, the VSS Jain Santh and S. S. Jain Yuvak Sangh celebrated Mahaveer Jayanthi at the Jain Math at Bazaar Road, Mylapore.
The event started off with a prayer session after which more than 1300 laddoos were distributed to the members. Later the youth wing of the Sangh organised breakfast for about 700 poor and needy people in the morning and lunch for 300 people in the afternoon. 150 special children from Andhra Mahila Sabha also had the lunch.
The youth wing has been quite active this year. They started off with the distribution of blankets early this year and followed it up by distributing buttermilk and breakfast on Sundays and annadanam on new moon days.
