REACH (Rural Education And Conservation of Heritage) foundation, an NGO to uplift the temple centric Rural India and restore our heritage monuments, conferred me with the Heritage award for the year 2013 along with 2 others. The award is something special for me since the award committee constitutes some of the great heritage experts like Dr.Sathyamoorthy, Ex-Director, ASI.
In connection with the REACH award, there was an article in Times of India newspaper on 23rd Nov 2013 (Chennai edition) and 24th Nov 2013 (other districts edition). The link to the article is here
I also got two awards in the ICICI bank’s online photo contest Privilege Moments. Have submitted 4 photos under 4 categories, out of which 2 photos got into Top 50 at the national level. One of them was the Viewrs’choice Zonal winner in Wildlife category and the other was the runner up in Viewers’choice Zonal runner up in Abstract category.
