Several years ago, I had read somewhere that in Jain literature there are 60 names for Ahimsa Devi. I got the names and requested Bombay Jayashri to sing them as a viruttam at home to teach the meanings with simple Abhinaya to Avvai Home girls in their NSS camp. She said why at home, I will go to a studio and record it. She also suggested Veena by Anantapadmanabhan and Tabla by Sai Shravanam and did not take any fee for herself or the studio of Sai Shravanam. I did voice over with English meaning. This we taught as a dance to Avvai Home girls in NSS camp at Kanathoor and they performed it at Avvai Home with Bombay Jayashri as the chief guest. 
Premnath, director of Rukminidevi Natyakashetra, has now choregraphed Sixty names of Ahimsa Devi" with six of his students and has recorded a video of it.
For this Deepavali, we want to dedicate it to the girls and women of Avvai Home. The video was premiered at 5 pm on Deepavali day 14th November 2020 on the youtube channels of The Aseema Trust and Rukminidevi Natyakshetra. Please join in.
Finance manager Vasantha Parthasharathy joins me in wishing you a great Deepavali and relief from the Pandemic.
