Inauguration of Miracle Dance School, Tiruppur, 28 Feb 2010

President of 5th Pillar Mr. Vijay Anand, was invited as a guest speaker for an inaugural function of Miracle Dance School, Tiruppur on 28th February 2010. Rotary Club President Mr. Murugananthan, organized the event that was attended by 120 dance students and their family. The Chief Guest of the function Dr. Loganayagi, of Balaji Surya Hospital, Tiruppur inaugurated the school and spoke about the ancient art and tradition of Indian culture and encouragd the students on the art of dancing. Dancing is a graceful art that is a combination of gestures, music and body, which is a good all around exercise too. Mr. Vijay Anand spoke about Anti-corruption, and the ways to tackle this problem. The audience was a mixture of different age group, which made it even more challenging to get the message across effectively to one and all. He gave examples that the kids can understand by quoting few stories and examples, and also mentioned about the RTI (Right to Information) Act, that is very beneficial to all who need answers for their delay in acquiring their basic necessities. Volunteers from 5th Pillar, distributed the Zero Rupee Note to all the participants, and the success stories documented, by handing these notes to the corrupt officials  were detailed to the audiences to encourage and motivate them to follow suit. Many attendees of the function were very thrilled to see the Zero Currency, especially the children, who thought it was cool. Highlight of this program was the kids eagerness in knowing more about corruption and the way we tackle it using Zero currency. Getting the commitment of the kids against corruption is the starting point in the road to success.
