SRIVARI SEVA SHOULD EMERGE AS A BRAND NAME FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICE – TTD PRO
Tirumala, 23 May 2014: Srivari seva voluntary service which was started by TTD about 14 years ago with an aim to provide selfless services to the fellow pilgrims and should emerge as a brand name in the field of voluntary service said, TTD Public Relations Officer and Head of Srivari Seva Sri T Ravi.
Addressing the srivari seva voluntary service meeting at Asthana Mandapam in Tirumala on Friday, he said, the Srivari Seva has attained a new definition for service and today has become a supporting arm for TTD in executing various activities for the benefit of the pilgrims in the areas of Health, Annaprasadam, Vigilance, Garden, Laddu Prasadam etc.
He said the volunteers have been rendering great service to the multitude of visiting pilgrims and are of a great help to TTD. “Srivari Sevaks are going to play a big role in taking up the TTD’s ambitious mission of propagation of Hindu Sanatana Dharma in the nook and corner of the country in future. So you should gear up and prepare to executive this divine noble task also”, he added.
Speaking on this occasion Catering Officer of Tirumala Sri Shastry offered the sevaks some counselling tips to avoid wastage of food while serving to the pilgrims in Annaprasada Bhavan, taking care while cutting vegetables, serving hot food stuffs, maintaining cleanliness etc. for offering services to the pilgrims in a better way.
Earlier TTD AVSO Sector IV Sri Sai Giridhar said, the Srivari Sevaks should also play a vital role in identifying suspicious persons in Tirumala apart from offering services to the pilgrims in various service areas. “Since Tirumala always has a security threat from extremist outfits, srivari sevaks should also be alert in their service areas. If you smell something fishy about a person or a baggage, immediately inform to the security personnel or complain to the vigilance toll free number 1800 425 4141“, he added.
The meeting was presided over by TTD Assistant PRO and Srivari Seva Sadan OSD Ms P Neelima. About 2000 volunteers hailing from different parts of the country took part in this meeting.
