Financial aid for two thousand more children, whose parents were farmers who had committed suicide after having debts, was provided on the occasion. Governor R. S. Gavai and Minister Vayalar Ramohanlal and Amrithanadamay (1)vi were the chief guests of the evening.
Mohanlal, dressed in a white shirt and trousers, garlanded Amma, and touched her feet in reverence. He said that Amrithapuri has become a pilgrim center, that the whole world is looking froward to. He added that millions of people are attracted to the place, solely on account of two letters that make up the most sublime Mantra – Amma.
