Chennai Sangamam makes a difference

It was the last day of the Chennai Sangamam festival when I went to the Government Estate to meet some of the artists. It was a lovely January morning and the sunny weather was enhanced by the warm smiling faces of the artists as they milled around the MLAs’ Hostel. Some were performing impromptu for visitors like me, others were walking around in groups, yet others were posing for photographs. In a corner, payments were being made to the participants. In a tent, Father Jagat Gasper Raj was addressing some of the artists and thanking them. It was one happy morning.
