C. Rangarajan inaugurates this year's aradhana

The customary lighting of kuthuvilakku is followed by a simple inauguration. C. Rangarajan, Chairman, Economic Advisory Council to Prime Minister and his wife arrive without much of fanfare.

Sunitha Vasan represents G.K. Vasan, the Union Minister of Shipping at this function.
G.Rangaswamy Moopanar, president, Sri Thyagabrahma Mahothsava Sabha and N. Subbaiyan, District Collector, Thanjavur sit composed on the dais.

Three students  from Thiruvaiyaru Govt. Music College sing the prayer and the inaugural speeches begin.

C. Rangarajan was happy to trace his connection with Thiruvaiyaru. He said his mother hails from Kalyanapuram, a village near Thiruvaiyaru and he also lived there for sometime. G.R. Moopanar mentions the contribution of G.K. Moopanar to the aradhana and speaks on its growth to today's magnitude.

Srimushnam Raja Rao, in his usual style, sings, quotes the speakers in his vote of thanks!
