Programme was Excellent. Seefen Devassy was the shining star for that day. Remya's dances was good especially Siva Thandava. Those who performed were just awsome. Are they trained by Remya ? Excellent. Keep it up...!

dear "friend"
your statement seems childish & not knowing the fact that how an organization like NAIR SERVICE SOCITY is working in the state of Kuwait.From your statement, it is clear that you have no idea what NAIR SERVICE SOCITY is doing for its members.Before making demoralisation statements in public forum, think twice, what you have done so far for the devolopment of your community & integration of the social forums which you belongs to. Lastly , if you want to know the cost of MANNAM JAYANTHI CELEBERATIONS , the simple answer is 'hard work of organizers' and as a community member we feel that we have spent the full cost, (not part-as in your statement) for the moral integration of nair community.

Nair Service Society (NSS)-Mannam Jayanthi Clelebration was very fantastic. Ramya Nambeesan, Steephan Devassy, Nikhil and other participants added more color to the Celebration. My special congratuations to the Organising committee.

Definitely the show was good. Organising skills of NSS should be appreciated.But they should think that this pomp and show is not what NSS should do for their community.There are many organisations who does shows in Kuwait. NSS is expected to be different Can anybody tell what was the cost of this show and even a part of this could have been used for their members.

the overall quality of the program was good. Congrats to NSS. Dr. Ananda Bose's speech was marvellous. Steefan Devassy had a great day with the audience. His performance was fantastic. Ramya's performance was not upto the expected level. Nikhil was okay.
