Serve people selflessly, says Kanchi seer

Chennai: He had no hands and legs since birth. But this did not deter him from learning music. As if to recognise S.R. Krishnamurthy’s skills in music, he was awarded Ghana Kala Rath­na award during the 79th jayanthi of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetadhipathi Sri Jayendra Saraswathi.
Many who had distinguished themselves in their chosen fields were also conferred with awa­rds in the presence of the Kanchi acharyas: Sri Jaye­ndra Saraswathi and Sri Vijeyandra Saraswathi at the function organised by Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Pee­tam Chennapuri Baktha Jana Samajam, Jana­kalyan, Chennai, and Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Bakth­argal Pervai at Krishna Gana Sabha here on Saturday.
K.S. Jayaraman was conferred Bhagavath Seva Rathna for temple renovation, Dr Seshadrinathan, who had donated blood 96 times, was presented Jana Seva Rathna, Dr Rama­chandran and Madurai Ananda Amritham were feted with Guruseva Rathna award, Vika­dam Kalyana Sundaram was awarded Asiapr­akas­am­ani, Mahavidwan V. Sivas­ub­ramanian was given Thievatamizhchakr­ava­rthi, Surekh­ame­htha was presented with Man­ovseva Rathna, Mala­thi Balakrishnan was given Prathamaguru Rat­hna, Gowri Swa­mi­nathan was awarded Gur­u­sreshtamani and R.N. Sundaram was given Janaseva Rathna award.
Besides, 39 other persons were honoured with awards on the occasion. Speaking on the occasion, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi called for sustained efforts to serve all sections of the society in a selfless manner. He said that he formed several organisations to help welfare aid reach the deserving. “All this was done in addition to spreading Vedas,” he added.
Noting that service alone was of importance, Sri Vijeyandra Saraswathi said “not all can involve in service….only those with noble thoughts indulge in service.” The senior pontiff distributed sewing machines and tricycles to beneficiaries. Over 180 spiritual and social organisations paid their res­pects to the Kanchi seers.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
