EC Meeting of Aryankavu Devasthana Sourashtra Mahajana Sangam.

The Executive Committee Meeting of Aryankavu Devasthana Sourashtra Mahajana Sangam, Madurai was held on 24th January 2010.

This is the first EC Meeting after the Thirukkalyaanam of Sourashtra Bride Sri Pushkala Devi with Lord Sri Aiyappan of Aryankavu, held on 25th December 2009.

The feedbacks received from various sources were discussed and plans were chalked out to take remedial measures. It was felt that there was no wide coverage of Thirukkalyana Festival this year in the newspaper DINAMALAR. Immediately the Secretary contacted the Dinamalar Office and conveyed our anxiety as to why there was no wide coverage of celestial marriage of Sri Pushkala Devi with Lord Sri Aiyappan at Aryankavu kShetram.

It was suggested that if there was no wide coverage in the newspaper on 24th and 25th December, immediately our people should have written a number of letters to the Editor, Dinamalar asking the reason why they have not covered this important festival.
It is hoped that in future, such omission may not happen.

Other pending issues will be discussed in the next EC Meeting, it is said.

The photo taken after the meeting was over can be viewed in the following link.

Sourashtra language has got its own script.
