Our Trustee Shri B.Shankar welcome the guests and gave the introductory speech
The Chief Guest Sri Anurag Sharma who had earlier been kind enough to consider our request to grace the function, addressed the vidyarthis and also appreciated the Patasala for putting all our efforts to preserving this ancient tradition of preservation of oral recitation of vedas in a traditional Gurukula mode.
Brahma Sri Viswanatha Gopalakrishna Sastry and Brahma Sri Vishnubhatla Subramanya Dikshitulu spoke at length the importance of Vedas and Sastras and the efforts required for Vidyarthis to master those with single minded devotion and also layed emphasis on Guru Bhakthi without which the vidyarthi cannot become successful
The Vidyarthis who completed Kramantham were awarded Certificate, Momemto and a cash prize of Rs.10000/-. This year around 13 vidyarthis completed Kramantham.
The programme concluded with our Trustee Shri N.S.Balasubramanian giving vote of thanks.
