Mother's Day

The Mother’s day event was the first one this year that we celebrated virtually due to the pandemic. The event started with a devotional song from Srinithi Sethuraman, followed by an inaugural speech by our CNS president Arun Annan.

Sindhu Suppiah shared a wishes video for the Mother's day. Divya Srinivasan performed an outstanding dance number to the song, "Vaayadi Petha Pulla". Numerous children reiterated a line from "Ulaga Neethi", coordinated by Ramu Valliappan. Afterwards, Valliappan Annan's family presented a drama called “The Sottai Patch". The drama was very humorous and realistic about how parents started cutting their children's hair at home during the pandemic.

February

Family Day

Thank you for all attending the Family Day function on the 16th of February at SVBF Hall.

It was great to see some new families join us for the occasion.

To begin, we played some "broken telephone" games, for kids and adults, but with a twist: it was through actions!

Another was a "How well do you know each other?" game where the parent and child had to write answers to seven questions. Afterwards, they both came up to the stage to see how many matches they got.

As well, both adults and kids tried some challenging tongue-twisters, both in English and Tamil!

Finally, the entire group was led through a fun and energetic dance routine.

Thanks, to all for contributing the delicious food for the afternoon, SVBF hall, and to all who helped out, to make it a enjoyable and fun event.

Hope to see all for the upcoming bhajans, and Tamil New Year & Mother's Day function!

Bhajan

February's bhajan was held in Mississauga, at Janani & Senthil's home.

January

Murugan Abhishekam

It has become a tradition and ritual for our GTA Nagarathars to start the New Year by receiving the blessings of Lord Muruga. This year, on 19th Jan we gathered at the Richmond Hill Ganesha temple to take part in our annual Murugan Abishekam. The priest performed a homam with a kalasa poojai, during the abishekam for Murugan. Some of the items offered to Lord Murugan during the abishekam were sandhanam, milk, yogurt, panchaamirtham, honey, ilaneer, and manjal. After the abishekam, the water from the kalasams were also offered to Lord Murugan with special manthrams being chanted by many priests.
