Food Mela

We  conducted one more food mela last Thursday. This food mela is a part of a fund raising program for the construction of a free hospital in Coimabatore, India for Women and Child care. The 'Shiva Shantha Mother and Child Health Centre' is run by volunteers who are devotees of Swami Shanthanada Saraswathi. In addition to providing service at the hospital they also frequently conduct rural health camps and vaccination campaigns
This hospital had its humble origin as a single room clinic around 20 yrs ago and now being expanded as a 3 storey building to provide full range of health care services for pregnant women and new born children.

 CLINIC - 20 years ago



As usual I cooked some of our favorite dishes for the food mela dinner
**Start with appetizer - Spinach cheese swirls
**Main course :
 -- Adai served with Green chutney
 --Sambar Rice with oven roasted Taro root curry
 -- Appalam for a crunchy bite
 -- Curd rice with Mango pickle
**Dessert - double layer chocolate cake

One of our friend's son was so happy playing with Wii games. And another kutty girl, she was playing with all the soft toys which I had. Everybody enjoyed the food and had a very good time. Also generously contributed for the good cause.
We both are very thankful to all who helped us to keep this work moving.
