T.Kalaivani – Keelakottai, Ramnad District
    508 Deepa Pooja was arranged at Thiruvadanai in Ramnad District. Since it was  a  new  place  to  me  I was  unable  to  collect the  donation. Sunday  the Pooja was arranged and until Friday I was unable to collect any donation and Friday I  went  to  the  temple. Three  people who were standing then called me and  enquired me and I explained  the  situation. They  informed  me to contact some  people  then and  also  helped  me  by  giving  me their TVS XL vehicle. I contacted those  persons  and  collected  the  donation  and returned the vehicle to them  and  gave  Rs.100/  towards the cost of petrol. But they refused to receive the  money and  also informed that  they have done  a small help to me to serve for the Vivekananda Kendra which impressed me very much.

T.Padmavathy – Vallankumaranvilai – Kanyakumari District
    In  our  balwadi  Selvi.  Sibitha  used to  come with flowers in her head to the balwadi.  On 19.11.2014  the birthday  of   Mananeeya Eknath  Ranade  was celebrated at Kanyakumari.  She has  informed  her  parents  not  to keep flower in   her   head   instead  to  give  it  in   her  hands.  On  that  day  she   brought different kinds of  flowers and  offered  to the  portrait of  Mannaneeya  Eknath Ranade. That showed  her  respect  to  Mananeeya Eknath  Ranade  and  made me to remember every time of that occasion.
