YPS Newsletter May 2017

From Editor’s Desk

The major activity during April was to take our actions for paying Tribute to Shri. TNA Perumal to conclusion. The submission of entries to the Tribute to TNA Perumal contest was closed on April 20th. In all 1343 pictures were uploaded by 141 enthusiasts. Open judging was held at YPS on April 22nd. It was a great occasion to see all the judges at the venue, most of whom stayed on till the end of the day.

The final step in our efforts was to hold a solo exhibition-cum-sale of Shri. TNA Perumal’s pictures, the proceeds from which went to the family of Shri. TNA Perumal. The Exhibition was inaugurated on April 28th by Shri. K N Shantha Kumar, Chief Editor, Prajavani and by Shr. M N Jayakumar, Retired Chief PCCF. The exhibition was kept open for public till April 30th. The event was made possible by contributions from M/s. Sandur Manganese & Iron Ores Ltd. and M/s. Prism Giclee Prints. Many have contributed money to the well being of Shri. TNA Perumal’s family.

Also on display at the exhibition were the award winning images from the contest. Please check YPS Website for a complete account of YPS efforts to pay a fitting tribute to Shri. TNA Perumal.
