Moving to a new office

Samanvaya is moving again. For those who know us for long, we moved out of our home office a little over 5 years ago. Since then in the last 5 years, we have moved from the double room office at Perambur to the large office in Mylapore to the scenic one at Tiruvanmiyur.  It has been a great journey and much learning for all of us. Now as almost completing a circle, we are moving closer to the house where Rama and myself live at Velachery. This is primarily to make functioning lot more easier and comfortable. Our work continues as usual.  The new office will function from the address below starting from 19th January 2011. A small meeting has been organized for invoking good will and productive times as we move to this new office on the 19th morning. We seek your continued support and good will in the new office space.  Thank you and Wish everyone a Happy Pongal and Makar Sankaranthi, Ramasubramanian Chief, Samanvaya 15th January 2011 New Office: 'Jai Saraswathi',  # 12-B, C
