Om Namah Sivaya,
Hope this letter will find you in good health and peace. We have re-opened the Gurukulam in Trivandrum in June 2023, after the summer vacation. All children came back. Sabin and Abhijith Suresh passed their 12th class and they are going for their higher studies. Abhijith Suresh got the opportunity to study BFA in the college of Fine Arts in Trivandrum. He will be staying in the Gurukulam and pursue his higher studies. Both, Sabin and Abhijith Suresh did well in their final exam.
Varun upgraded now into the 12th standard. He performed well in the final exam. Varun comes from a remote village in Palakkad called Attappadi and is part of the first generation who is getting education from that village. He is also good in sport and games. His brother Sumesh studies well in the 9th standard. He is taking slowly more and more responsibilities.
Aromal and Abhijith are now in the 10th class. Aromal is doing well in his class and Abhijith who has learning disabilities is getting better and better day by day. He improved a lot in his day-to-day activities and is taking little responsibilities. Hopefully he will get into a normal situation. Their brother Ananthan has completed 12th standard and is going for higher studies.
The brothers Nibin and Nithin are coming from Idukki and are doing well. Nibin is in 5th and Nithin is in 7th standard. Nibin has got a singing talent and is focusing to improve it. His brother Nithin is more introverted and prefers to study more.
Jagan finished his ITI in Electricals and is now working in a company in Pune as an electrician. He is now able to help his family financially.
We are getting some volunteers to take tuition for the children. Elisabeth, Sheela, Mangala and Kalyani are all visiting regularly and are interacting with the children. Elisabeth teaches English and Sheela teaches Mathematics. Mangala is coming from the Sivananda Ashram in Neyyardam and teaches Yoga and Arts. Kalyani, from Vivekananda Kendra, is teaching inspiring songs, games and also some value-based stories. We are really thankful for their valuable time.
In Thrissur, we are helping with the children’s education. Many children are coming forward to get help mainly for their higher studies. Sivadev was studying for his BBA. He finished his studies successfully with good marks and he is now looking for a job. Alan is in his final year of Engineering and is also doing well. Nivedya is preparing for her NET Exam. She is planning to do research in Chemistry. She finished her Master’s degree with an outstanding performance. We are sure that she will be able to fulfil her ambitions. We are helping Prisha K.P. for her higher studies in BCA in Thrissur.
To be able to continue this good work, we need your wholehearted support. Now our needs are increasing day by day. We hope you can spread this news to your friends and family circle and ask them to participate in this social responsibility. Kindly take notice that for any donation via Bank transfer, we need all details and full name and address and PAN number (Pan number for Indians).
Pray for good health and peace for all,
With Love and Om Shanti
Swami Tattvarupananda Saraswati
