In his inauguration speech, Swami Gururatnam Jyanatapaswi said that we should understand and promote the benefits of traditional medical care. Now a day the medical care expenditure has been multiplied by many folds and thus good medical care has become out of reach of common people. The traditional medical care is generally cheaper in comparison with modern medicines and by thus a common man can balance his family budget.
In the programme, Dr. Punalur Somarajan Secretary Gandhibhavan extended his heartiest welcome to all participants. Santhigiri Marketing Manager Shri EK Shaji, Mr. M Rasheed, Sri. M Sheik Pareeth, Sri Ani Karthikeyan, Sri. S Suresh Babu, Sri M.T. Bava, Actor T.P. Madhavan, Sri PS Amalraj, Sri. G Bhuvanachandran and Sri Vijayan Ambadi were spoken.
