“Sri Ahobila Math Oriental Higher Secondary School, West Mambalam, excels not only in academics but also in upholding the cultural values and tradition by encouraging the study of Vedas and Prabandas,” said R. Govindarajan, Advocate, Member of Exnora and P.A. to the Mayor of Chennai, who distributed free cycles offered by the Government of Tamil Nadu to the Plus One students of the school, numbering 247, on November 11.

The chief guest said that besides inculcating discipline in students, the school nurtured the noble values of humility, modesty and character-building, so as to enable the students groom into worthy and valuable citizens of the society.

While addressing the students, Anand Laxman, Managing Director-CEO, Spearheaders and Chairman of Exnora, advised them to refrain from evil and develop noble virtues in themselves. Learning Vedas and Prabandas would enable them to acquire a strong character and gain moral values thereby making students embodiments of virtues and nobility.

Earlier T.M. Soundararajan, headmaster of the school, welcomed the chief guests. He stated that the generosity and compassion of the Government of Tamil Nadu in helping the students offering free cycles to the Higher Secondary section all over the State, is highly laudable.

The headmaster spoke in appreciation of Lion M. Murugan who has rendered great service to the physically challenged and continues his humanitarian acts throughout the year, illuminating the lives of more than 1,000 disabled persons helping them to enter a vocation.
