Thirumaran reports: "We celebrated Deepavali at TRUST Children's Homes in a grand way with the support of a lot of well-wishers.
There were new clothes, three special meals, sweet bags, cracker boxes, shoes, bath towels, soap cakes, nail polish, clips, underclothes, hair oil, talcum powder – we surprised the children in all ways.
Sweets and savouries were prepared on the campus itself. It was really a wonder for our children.
A music orchestra played.
My old students and their friends were very much involved in this Deepavali celebration.
We invited government officials and a judge to join the celebration with us.
The children decorated the campus with good involvement.
We are especially thankful to Mr. Sundaresan for extending his great support on 18.10.2017."
