Its been a very busy days/months at work that prevented me from being active in the blog. It still continues to be the same way. However, I owe you all an update on 2012 veda rakshana drive. It took a while to complete all the accounting formalities here before the funds were transferred to India. On top of that the bank took its sweet time to transfers. Finally a total of Rs 4,31,865.00 is now in the bank in India. Here is the summary::
- Rs 1,91,724.00 – Total amount collected from all India and non-USA donors
- Rs 2,40,141.00 – All US/Canada donors ($ 4035.00 @ Rs 55.16/$)
I have requested our friends in India to put this amount in a fixed deposit so that the interest accrued will be given to the patasala.
I will continue to keep you all updated on this topic. For security reasons, I am not posting the image of the FD certificate etc on the web. In the meantime, if anyone has any questions about this fund, please feel free to contact me.
With all your help and with the blessings of Jagadguru Mahaperiyava, this drive comes to an end. This amount, although in the bank, in my opinion is surrendered at the holy feet of Mahaperiyava.
Let the grace of our Periyava shower upon all the donors and their families for contributing for this cause.
Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara
