Rameswaram is getting ready for the inauguration of the grand memorial for Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam on 27th of July. Incidentally, the late President initiated the ‘Green Rameswaram’ project on 28th January, 2014. In his address he said “Friends from Vivekananda Kendra have planned the renovation of the holy water bodies of Rameshwaram. Today they have renovated decades long abandoned, polluted water bodies. They have removed the thorny shrubs which occupied the Teertham, they have removed the putrefied stagnant, polluted waters; they have removed the liquor bottles and other pollutants that had been thrown into the Teerthams. Now the pilgrims can visit these Teerthams. This noble task by Vivekananda Kendra is a praiseworthy service. I congratulate each and every one of you who participated in this noble endeavor”.
We the members of ‘Green Rameswaram project’ are committed to fulfill his dream of keeping his native place not only clean and green but also work in its overall development. In this endeavor, we seek the support of all the stakeholders. This month newsletter has the following highlights:
