Gajalakshmi Paramasivam



 At a time when there is turmoil in the Middle East, it was heartening to learn about positive development in Northern Sri Lanka. Pratyangira Trust, Vaddukoddai,  under the able leadership of  Mr Thilagadas  Chandrapal, organised a rally to raise the consciousness of the civil society, about corruption, suicides, and other influences that lead young ones to disorderly behaviour. The trust has strong support of the Tamil diaspora, including in Australia.

The rally commenced at Jaffna College, Vaddukoddai and proceeded to the temple of Mother Pratyangira’s temple at Sangarathai junction.  


There is a strong need for social upliftment in areas affected not only by war, but caste-based discrimination over a long period. Some of the work of the trust is in Thunaivi  also.  Work is now underway, to build a new home for the family that lives in this hut:


We commend highly the service provided by Mr Chandrapal and his team.
