Sri Ayyappan Puja

MitraSeva brought the joyous celebration of Sri Ayyappan Puja for our community.

At the Hindu Cultural Society, Sri Ayyappan Puja was celebrated as a daylong event on Sunday, 8th January 2017. Nearly 150 participants have joined the celebrations, bringing joy and harmony.
The Puja was performed under the guidance of Guru Sri Kalyanji and with the support of keen volunteers. The highlight was the arrival and participation of The Worshipful The Mayoress of the London Borough of Harrow in the Maha Aarti. This is the second time to have the Mayoress in our celebration.

The Puja was colourful and divine with everyone participating in the performance. Enchanting nama-sangeerthanam, with many bhajans filled the air, uplifting the spiritual ambience. Maha prasadam was served to all, to ensure the fulfilment is achieved in all measures.

Thanks to all for your participation and your support as our enablers and volunteers.

Digital Awareness for Seniors

Digital Awareness

MitraSeva initiated the Digital Awareness to Seniors, for bringing Social Media Applications and tools for their benefit. 

MitraSeva Volunteer Smt. Sujatha Rangarajan presented the scope and usefulness of WhatsAPP services for the Seniors, starting with a general introduction of WhatsAPP which quickly turned into lot of interesting questions and answers, and the inevitable hands-on demonstration.

 Clearly, this preliminary session has sparked lot of interests among the Mitras and so, subsequent sessions shall be arranged to benefit our Seniors.  Digital Awareness is an important service and MitraSeva is planning to bring out more sessions in the future.

 

Mitra Charitra

Experience is the greatest teacher.   By learning from the experiences of our Mitras, especially from those who are gracefully ripen by age and bearing the fruits of vast experiences, we indeed learn a lot.   It is also a great gesture to show our seniors that we are indeed caring for their well being; holding their hands to walk back on their nostalgic memory lane is surely a small token of our respect.  That is what Mitra Chartira is all about.

MitraSeva intends to provide a stage for the Seniors amongst us, to share with us what life has taught them, what made them who they are now, what their regrets and resolves… anything that makes them feel at ease to share with us.   

We kicked-off the first session of Mitra Charitra, with one of our Seniors  Mrs Sita Venkatraman, who gave an interesting and engaging account of her wonderful life, thanks to MitraSeva Volunteer Mr Jayaraman for conducting the interview amid the happy interlude of questions and comments from all  participants. 

After a fun-filled game of Bingo,  the session ended with a happy note of encouragement for the forthcoming MitraSeva sessions.
