One thought on “Newsletter July, 2016”

  1. The newsletter is very informative and gives me an opportunity to know the intensive and wonderful work which is being done by this group. The consistent meticulous efforts you have been putting into bringing together so many people into different spheres of their interests is commendable. The greatly talented ones like Roopa who provide selfless contributions add value to everyone’s lives is praiseworthy. Manikandan and his efforts towards organic products is commendable. Dr.Lakshmi’s expert advice helps a lot.

    All the parents participating and including these valuable traditional remedies and suggestions into their lives and thereby enhancing the quality of their lifestyle is all due to this group. Have been exploring different articles on this page. Very interesting and helpful too.

    God bless all your noble efforts always. Yamini great job.God bless you.
