Dear Ramesh Sir & Ganga Madam & UAE Tamil Sangam team, We may never get time to interact on a personal level as I know you are very busy with the Sangam programmes and co-ordination of events. I through this email would like to pour my heart out. I am amazed at how every family member welcomes all the strangers with a smile and a warmth. No body is rejected. Even a two year old kid is allowed to dance...I doubt any other sangam will do this. Kudos to you Ganga ji. I have been members of various groups where only special committee members and their children perform. But here all are treated equally with love and respect without been biased on basis of caste, language, religion. The doors are open to all and I am happy to be part of this blessed group. Even your children need an applause. They are kind to everyone around. Not to forget Khadija...She is very patient. I have been regularly visiting the place for the past 10 days and never once I felt as a stranger. You both are special angels sent by God to spread the message of unity and love amongst us all. Ganga ji is so humble in approach with everyone....I bow down. The Sangam truly stands out as it promises- Serve humanity and Unite humanity. It is the best one ever formed. It is not UAE Tamil Sangam but UNITED TAMIL SANGAM. I wonder how much patience you and other members are filled with. All unselfishly and untiringly working with happiness around. Perhaps I have never experienced such warmth from strangers in my life and hence I thank you through this email. Since the leaders themselves are so unselfish the same aura spreads to all other members too. UAE Tamil Sangam has got the best leaders. May God shower his choicest blessing upon all of you. With lots of love, Parvathi.S

What a blissful, soul stirring music from the veena maestro ! We kept thinking why doesn't the clock stop ticking ? Time come to a standstill and only the chords be heard ! The medley was so cleverly intertwined to form such a beautiful garland, it was indeed a "Sangeetha Maalai "yesterday. I am still at awe with Ganga & Team, her organising skills are mind-blowing ! She was so cool and composed all the way. Honestly, we guys were so tensed about just arriving for the event on time and could not but wonder how you & your team handle the stress !! That actually reminds me to request for a special session on stress and time management tips by you !! "En uyir thozhi" concept was too good, apart from the awards that you received you deserve one more... Gokul and Aneesh rocked and as usual DD was at her best of wits.and humour. The hero of the evening, Director K.B's words are worth its weight in gold..at this age despite failing health, he made sure to stand and talk ! No wonder, old is gold !! What a noble gesture and attitude he displayed ! Last but not the least, the wonderful audience who could appreciate the quality of the wide variety of entertainment. The thundering applause and the cheer was aptly added whenever needed in right measure. Proud to be a member of UTS....God bless u. Best regards Meena Rajesh
NAMBIKKAI SWARANGAL 2011 TESTIMONIALS Radhika M Raghavan 18 April 2011 10:52AM 15April2011 Nambikkai Swarangal Testimonial To [email protected], Hi, Thank you for organising this different experience for us and our kids right in our city. What an amazing way to spend a Thursday evening ! Meena and Rajesh coaxed us to come along as we generally stay away from live shows and we were floored from the “curtains open”… The charming hosts, the warmth of the people on stage, the electrifying performance the young kids, the energy of the dancers and the sheer optimism of every speaker, I don’t have enough adjectives to describe the lingering thoughts .. Personally for me , I regained huge respect for the parent of these children and young adults and a realization to be thankful to GOD for the healthy, active lives that we lead and all the small things that we seldom pause to think about. Thank you and wish you all the very best for your future endeavors.. I am sure that your passion drives the team / members of this organization to excel. cheers Radhika
Rajesh EVS Sent: 16 April 2011 05:25AM CC - Meena Rajesh Dear Ramesh & UTS Team, First of all many thanks to you for giving us an opportunity to be part of yesterday's programme. There are no words to express about the fantastic show we witnessed yesterday. The name "Nambikkai Swarangal" is very apt. We are still talking about it and are not able to get over the emotions and the fulfillment of yesterday's program. We remembered through the year about the last year's Nambikkai Swaranagal, however there were no expectations last time. This year you had set expectations and we must say you not just didn’t disappoint us but you have exceeded our expectations. We take this opportunity to thank one and all who had worked relentlessly to make this program happen. It was very heartening to note that the program was supported not just by sponsors but by a very good and appreciative audience. All this makes us proudly feel that UTS has ensured to adequately mix entertainment with social responsibility as well. The credit goes to your team more specifically to you. We had thought we will show our kids how much more they could perform and contribute with all their faculties intact while the lesser privileged could showcase their skills so well, but we must confess we envy and salute those " actually challenged" parents who have dedicated their lives for their children !! We have come out of the auditorium as better parents ,hoping to raise our kids as good human beings. Ramesh, all we can do it to give our best wishes to you and your team to continue in your journey towards social work. Needless to mention, please let us know when the DVD would be ready for this program and it would be our privilege to have a copy to cherish and relive the moments of yesterday's evening. Thanking you once again and pray to the ALMIGHTY to give you and your team the strength to continue doing and excelling in your work. regards Meena and Rajesh E V Sundaresan
