Sri Subramuniya Kottam children celebrated Guru Jayanthi on the 5th of January.
This year was a special occasion as two of Rishi Thondanathan’s students Sai and Ram Sivbalan came from California and spent two weeks with the Kottam children. Ram Sivabalan, 14 years old, performed the pada puja.
After the pada puja the children entertained everybody with some cultural events.
The teenagers from USA also helped the younger children with their English lessons.
