We are glad to inform you that Vivekananda Study Circle (VSC – a voluntary group of professionals in Technopark) is organizing ‘Vishuthaineettam’, a novel initiative to help the techies regain the lost connectivity with nature. VSC volunteers are gearing up to welcome this year’s Vishu by providing a sapling to the employees of Technopark. The idea is to keep the sapling as a Vrukshakkani and Vishuthaineettam to augment the traditional Vishukkani and Vishukkaineettam and thereby foster the love for nature in the hearts of younger generations.

We are planning to conduct an inaugural function on 8th April 2015 at 6 PM in Travancore Hall, Technopark, followed by a 2 day stall, from where the saplings will be distributed. As per the current plan, we are targeting to distribute a minimum of 2000 saplings to the techies. Well known environmentalist Padmashri Smt. Sugathakumari teacher has agreed to be our chief guest for the inaugural function and deliver the key note speech.

On behalf of the Vivekananda Study Circle, we request you to grace the occasion by your presence and be a part of the initiative.
