Chennai. On Vyasa Purnima day, 1008 teachers drawn from Chennai city schools assembled at the sprawling field where the five day annual Hindu Spiritual and Service Fair was being conducted. As many students drawn from Government schools performed Pada Puja to the teachers and gave them gifts of saree, dhoti etc. The fair consisting of 250 stalls and participated by several hundred Hindu religious service organisations and groups were inaugurated by Kanchi Shankaracharya Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal. On the concluding day a grand Srinivasa Kalyanam Puja was arranged by Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam. On all the five days thousands of Chennai residents were benefitted by the crisp and attractive display of hundreds of Hindu projects run by as many organisations and groups, which have openly identified themselves as Hindu. This Hindu awareness and Hindu identity by all sections of society is the main aim of the fair.
