He never missed to mention their Grand Mother Smt.Nagammal who was also a selfless Mylaporean who came under the wings of the Philanthropic Couple and sacrificed her life for the cause. He listed the various activities of Sri Sumukhi Rajasekharan Memorial Foundation and also about the great Golu Legacy in their house as well about the magnificent Thematic Golus put up by them in few famous Temples. He insisted that the Temple Golus were done purely on the basis of merit and blessing and not on a commercial basis.


The function ended with a devotional note when the divine temple bells started ringing for the “Sandhya Kaala Deeparathanai”. On the whole it was a very Historic, Auspicious and Memorable Function. The Foundation Members showed their solidarity and gathered at the temple, along with hundreds of devotees to witness the colourful and remarkable event.


It was a Historic & Significant Occasionfor the Mylapore Trio, in the sense, that it all started from the same venue in 2009,when a Thematic Golu was put up by the Trio at Kapali Temple. After travelling and setting up massive Thematic Golus at different Temples in various Towns and Cities for the past 9 years (Navarathri) Goddess Karpagambal beckoned them & showered Her Blessings on them at this Same Spot exactly after a decade in this 10th year, at the historic Golu Mandapam. Its incredible to believe that she has rewarded the Trio with the “Nallor Virudhu” for their Golu Services and sacrifices. The wheel has turned one full cycle and again we are back to the square, to offer ourselves at Her Lotus Feet.
