Rose of Ridvan Service Award for Social Research & Writing to Samanvaya

It was a surprise honour to be invited and feted for 'Social Research & Writing' by the Baha'i community of Chennai. 

On the 1st May 2012, in an elegant simple ceremony they honoured several people in the city for their contribution to the social sector, including Arun (of KFI fame, now managing eco-restoration and a school near Tiruvannamalai) for his work on sea turtle conservation, Aparna Nagesh for her social initiatives through dance as a medium, Dr. Sailakshmi and Ekam team for its work in saving infants in government hospitals across the state among others. 

Samanvaya was honoured for its work in social research over the last 14 years that has shaped / influences several social ventures, initiatives and organizations. We thank the organizers for this honour and the wonderful evening. Any word of appreciation strengths the resolve to do what one does and inspires others to perhaps dive in.
