Now, charity begins at mela

It was a show of talent of different kind at the fourth edition of `Mahalir Mela.'

The mela,, an annual event organised by the Inner Wheel Club of Tuticorin, was held at the Sri Rajeswari Kalyana Mandapam in Tuticorin on Tuesday.

As part of the event, competitions in rangoli, flower arrangement, vegetable carving, group dance, vocal and classical solo dance were conducted for women above 15 years.

In the rangoli segment, competitors through their works spread the message of `Vaccination to all children', `Say no to smoking' and `Fight against dowry'.

The exciting section of all competitions was the `recipe display.'

Mouth-watering dishes were prepared and exhibited attractively.

It included mixed `fruit kheer' made of seasonal fruits, milk, rice, butter, custard powder, sugar and dry fruits, `halwa' made of banana and sweets prepared using mango and different types of pudding.

The secretary of the club, P.P. Veila Raja, said that the entire revenue generated through the mela would be used for charity in Tuticorin .
