Sai Temple at Kelambakkam is probably the most well-maintained place of worship in our OMR neighbourhood. We see devotees helping the maintenance staff in keeping the temple neat and clean. In the tradition of karsewa performed by Sikhs visiting gurudwara, I have observed Sai devotees visiting Kelambakkam devoting their time to cleaning the temple premises as part of their worship.
Outside is another story. Adjacent to the temple is a vacant plot that is being used as garbage dump by residents in the vicinity. I took this video to be able to share with members of OMR Greens. And to suggest we take up the next trash-busting around Sai Temple. We have since decided the date - Sunday, Nov.18. The temple management has extended their support.
We plan to mobilize public awareness and support for our awareness programme, among residents, Hindustan University students and faculty members who partner with OMR Greens, our well-wishers in Kelambakkam - Saravana Medicals, and Murugesan of the firewood depot - and Kelambakkam panchayat people. We also count on participation of Sai devotees.
