Launched in February 2006, the idea of the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park is to provide opportunities to young budding talent aged below 15 years to present in front of an informal park audience. Over 1300 children have been part of the Kutcheri in the Park series. Sundaram Finance conducts audition to select the artistes to present the Mikeless Kutcheri.
