A five years old boy. Rajesh Kannan is studying in our Creche. He is a good and obedient student.His sister (1 ½ years old) was admitted during Saraswathi Pooja. She is crying most of the time. This makes Rajesh Kannan worried and he used to control himself. He will come near her and clean her face and look after her very kindly. When the teacher feeds the child he comes and asks the teacher to allow him to feed her so that she will eat more. One day her legchain fell somewhere. A child named Mariselvi found it and gave it to the teacher. On seeing this, Rajesh told his mother not to send his sister with ornaments as the teacher had much work in the school. She should not thrust more work on

her. The boys maturity touched my heart.

N.Chandra – Ambai – Tirunelveli district

As I was suffering from some poisonous infection I went to a shop to buy medicinal plant for it. There I met a Headmaster and his wife working as a teacher in V.K.Puram. As they were known to me they talked intimately. The shopkeeper enquired me about my job and advised me to take care of the health. “Doing service is appreciable. To continue best service good health is essential” saying this he treated me kindly. I am proud of being a Kendra service worker.

This incident happened while conducting Midalangadu cultural competitions. One of the special invitees for the valedictory function asked us to tell a story to inspire the participants. At once Kasthuri teacher narrated a story in simple language so as to make all the children understand. The person who asked for the story told us that he didn’t even know that story and appreciated her. He also commented that the trainees of Vivekananda Kendra were talented and service – minded. That was their special quality. We all felt happy and proud of hearing such appreciation.
