Tamil comedy as fund-raiser

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: Fundraisers seem to be the flavour of the season, with special movie screenings and musical performances being conducted to find funds for deserving NGOs. When Swabodhini, a school for Special Children at Valmiki Nagar decided to raise funds, it narrowed in on S.Ve.Shekher's popular Tamil comedy `Ellarum Vanga.' The comedian-dramatist-MLA staged the play at Narada Gana Sabha on February 23. The school was set up by Radha Ganesan in 1989 to cater for the special needs of four children. Today it accommodates 60 students (aged between 3 and 25) and imparts occupational therapy to another 40 children. Swabodhini caters for a wide spectrum of children, including those with autism, Attention Deficit Hyperkinetic Disorder, developmental delay and Down's syndrome.
