It's always a pleasure to get awards as a kid because you know that you didn't
have a role to play in being selected, except for the deserving it bit. As awards
get bigger and the people receiving them get bigger, various other factors come
into play. Here's some pure play merit rewarding happening, and the recipients
will be genuinely thrilled.
D G Raja Rao established the Viswasai Cultural Organization in 1997, with an
intention to arrange programs for children to encourage them to hone their talents
in various activities. Rao is a freelance writer for some Telugu magazines,
and also writes for Indian Express.
Viswasai has been giving away merit awards every year for the past five years
to top rankers in the Class X exams. This year it received around 500 applications
from top rankers across the state, and 125 students have been finalized for
the Viswasai Cultural Organization Merit Awards. They will get mementos and
merit certificates for the excellence that they have shown in the exams.
After the awards ceremony, Viswavinootna (magician C V Ramana's daughter) will
perform a magic show, and this will be followed by a flute concert by Bharadwaj
and music by Parvati and troupe. Please contact D G Raja Rao at 750-1359 for
