We live in a jet age where people lead busy lives and seldom find time to pause, look around and interact with friends, relatives or neighbours. The digitised world has reduced us human beings to mere zombies -- devoid of all emotions.

Special day

Against this backdrop, celebration of International Mother’s Day assumes great significance.

Valuable way

While most people chose to greet mothers on this special day by showering gifts on them or by posting an e-Card that spoke about their innermost thoughts on their mother, members of the city-based Vayovruddha Charitable Trust, preferred the most valuable way to celebrate the occasion.

Chairman Challa Harikumar, along with members of the organising committee Muttavarapu Muralikrishna, and T. Arjuna Rao, has been organising this annual event for the last several years.

Grocery items

“This is the 74 month that we are distributing grocery items like fine quality rice (5 kg), dal (1 kg), edible oil (1/2 kg), tamarind (1/4 kg) and medicines to 120 senior citizens above 70 years of age. The beneficiaries are identified from the poorest of the poor sections,” said Mr. Harikumar.

Abuzz with activity

The Vijaya School of Nursing opposite Modern Super Bazar on Madhura Nagar Road near Alluri Sitaramaraju bridge at Durgapuram, was abuzz with activity on Sunday. Mahila Sessions Judge, Vijayawada, V.V. Nirmala Geethamba was the chief guest on the occasion while president of Siddhartha Academy of General and Technical Education, Vijayawada and Viswanatha Satyanarana were special guests.
