INSPIRING INCIDENTS

K.Selvi - Sivagiri- Tirunelveli District

In  our  balwadi   Selvi. V. Madumitha  aged   about   4 ½   years  studied.  At present she is living with her father and not coming to our balwadi. They have joined her in the nearest balwadi there. Daily she has  continued the practice of saying  Sri Ram  Jeyaram for 11 times  in the  morning and  without  the prayer of  Bhramarpanam  she  will  not  take any food. Her teacher asked who has trained her like this. Madumitha told them that Kendra balwadi teacher has taught and trained to behave with good manners. Still now she is practicing the same habit every day. Her mother came to me and told all these matters and wondered. This inspired me very much.

S.Kavitha – Kallaveerian Villai – Kanyakumari District

My cultural class student Selvan R.Murugesh has joined in a company for a job. Three months have gone and after availing two days leave he came to our place. He gave me a gift article along with a pen. I asked him the purpose for the gift. From the first month salary he has bought clothes for his parents and gift for me. Further he told me that in order to give respect as a balwadi teacher and cultural class teacher he has offered the gift. Because during his childhood he was delicate and shy. He asserted that only because of me all his shyness have gone. All those past memories made him feel so happy and grateful.

T.Kasthuribai – Kurunthootti vilai – Kanyakumari District

Sri. Tamilmaran who belongs to Kootalumoodu village used to speak in debates on stage. He was good at debate. He visited Bharathi Educational Institute. He whole heartedly told all the people that because of Vivekananda Kendra he was able to become good at debate. When he was a small boy he participated in an elocution competition.  He spoke about Lord Krishna and won the first prize. That was his first competition which he cannot forget. That inspired me very much.
