Feed back from organiser’s side-
The talk went off very well.Well attended.
We have been flooded with e-mails and enthu comments.
People seem to have been very moved by the fact that we had young girls participating- they read out real stories abt the child widows, who were often their own age….
The program started with sweets being handed out to celebrate Aug 22nd-Birthday of Madras.
