The TTD has literally set in motion the process to conduct in a grand manner on February 25 as scheduled the ‘Srivari Kalyanotsavam' at Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, the Himalayan kingdom.

As a prelude to the programme, the Executive Officer of the TTD, L.V. Subramanyam has flagged off at Tirupati on Monday the intricately decorated ‘Kalyana Ratham'.

The custom-made embellished vehicle would traverse across the country carrying on board the deities, specially designated for the purpose and is expected to reach Kathmandu, a day before the date set for the fete.

A contingent of TTD priests, pundits and staff members also would follow the Srivari Ratham covering a number of places en route for the benefit of the locals and to spread the spirit of devotion among the people.
